Re: Are any of you chemists?

0.5101 is the mass of BaSO4. = 0.002186 mols (S) = 0.002186 mols (saccharin)
m(saccharin) = nM = 0.002186*183.18 = 0.4004g = 400.4mg
m(saccharin)/tablet = m(saccharin)_total/10 = 400.4/10 = 40.04mg of sacchain per tablet.

They survive because they only experience the eacceleration for a split second. If they had to endure 50 g's for, say, the time it takes to run across a room, I doubt they'd survive.
