  401. Lead Analytical Chemist
  404. Imagine yourself as the Lead Analytical Chemist at Kaplan Industries. Your first big assignment is to investigate the strength of several commercial antacids for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). They have sent five antacids to be tested with a back-titration that works as follows:
  405. First, each antacid tablet is mixed with 40 mL of 0.1 M HCl-this acidic solution is the same stuff that is in stomach acid, and one antacid pill isn't anywhere near enough to neutralize all 40 mL of the acid.
  406. So, to see how much extra help each antacid pill needs to neutralize 40 mL of 0.1 M HCL, you add 0.05 M NaOH drop-by-drop to back-titrate the solution until the pH is neutral.
  407. What this means is that, the stronger the antacid tablet, the less NaOH it will take to help bring the acid to neutral. (In other words, the stronger antacid tablets counteract more of the original HCl, leaving the solution closer to neutral before the NaOH is added.)
  408. Here are your results:
  411. Maalox
  412. Tums
  413. Mylanta
  414. CVS brand
  415. Rennies
  416. Mass of one dose
  417. antacid
  418. 20.0 g
  419. 21.0 g
  420. 18.0 g
  421. 18.3 g
  422. 17.5 g
  423. mL NaOH used in back-titration
  424. 24.1 mL
  425. 22.4 mL
  426. 20.0 mL
  427. 19.9 mL
  428. 24.4 mL
  430. 1. Which is the strongest antacid, on a single-dose basis? Which is the weakest? Explain and show your calculations.
  431. 2. Which are the strongest and weakest, on a by-weight (mass) basis?
  433. 3) When people do back titrations, they usually watch the solution for a color change when the solution becomes neutral. What might you have used in the above experiment to get this color change to happen in the solution? At what pH would the solution have been neutral?
  435. 4) If you had walked into the lab, only to discover that you only had 0.1 M sulfuric acid available to run your tests, how might this have affected your calculations? Why?
  436. 5) If most of the antacids you tested, the active ingredient is Aluminum Hydroxide. Here is an unbalanced reaction that shows how this chemical neutralizes HCl (the main ingredient in stomach acid). Please provide a balanced version of this equation:
  438. 6) The FDA requires that all of its reports be super-brief-short enough so that they can be sent via text message to all of its lab sites across the country.. As you probably know, the word limit for text messages is very small, so your goal here is to describe precisely what you did to test the antacids in fewer than 150 words. In this brief report, you should provide the FDA the major findings from your tests and let them know generally how you performed your tests.

  767. Dave Dandy
  770. Objective: Identify, formulate, and solve technical and policy challenges in an InfoSEC position.
  772. Background: Dave Dandy, Owner of David’s Dandy Doohickies (D.D.D.) has noticed that several of the intranet servers are located in the system administrator’s cube and have been for 3 months. The servers include these servers: a web server that hosts the HR system; an internal email server that routes mail destined for the “outside” to the world facing server in the DMZ; and an internal only ftp server used to hold proprietary design information on the new lone of framastats that D.D.D is developing.
  774. The current server room at D.D.D. has no locks, cameras, or access lists. In fact, it still resembles the warehouse that it is housed in, lacking even a rudimentary fire extinguisher system. While there is a tape backup process, labels consist of small notes taped to each backup tape. There is also no centralized log management; list of who has administrative rights on any of the servers in the server room or outside the administrator’s cube.
  776. Instructions: Remember there are three types of controls: administrative, technical, and policy. You first need to identify all of the security issues with D.D.D. Divide the issues identified into the three control categories. Each issue may over lap the categories and often do. For each issue, identify a specific technique in that control category to mitigate the issue. This is most easily done with a matrix but there are certainly many other acceptable ways.
  778. You should seek controls that will provide the most security effectiveness for the money. That said, Dave will listen to reasonable proposals for spending his money.
  780. Deliverables:
  782. Submit a matrix or other suitable way of expressing the relationship between issue, type of control, and type of mitigation. Use proper citations when appropriate, so a reference page will also be required. Remember that security must be cost effective as well as effective so use wisdom when deciding to use a control or a mitigation technique.
  784. While there are non-access control issues that you may include, the focus should be on those issues related to access control as we have discussed during this course.
