Question

The percentage of Se in peroxidase anhydrous enzyme is 0.5% by weight (atomic weight = 78.4). Then minimum molecular weight of peroxidaseanhydrous enzyme is

Solution

Correct option is

 

0.5%  by weight means 0.5 g Se is present in 100 g of peroxidaseanhydrous enzyme. As at least one atom of Se must be present in the enzyme and atomic weight of Se = 78.4, therefore 1 g atom of Se, i.e.,78.4 g will be present in enzyme
