I need to know if im on the right track here with these bio chemistry questions , orginal question is You are working for a biotech company whereby you are in charge of developing a new proteinaceous drug for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. This molecule must be in a specific folded state in order to exert its biological effect. Unfortunately it undergoes an unfolding reaction at 306 K. The molecular weight of the drug is 2300 g/mole. You run acalorimetry study on the molecule and find that 1ml of a 0.5 mg/ml solution yields an enthalpic response of magnitude +1.735 mJ at 306 K its asked me to work out no# of moles in the calorimetry sample above so am i right doing the following mass=0.5*1=0.5 no# moles=mass (0.5)/ molecular weight (2300)= 0.002 moles ?
