C60, assuming a 13C abundance of 1.1%.
d. Calculate the masses and abundances of the most abundant
10 isotopic peaks of cholesterol, C27H46O.
4. Estimate the resolving power for the following examples:
5. What elemental compositions are possible for a positive ion
molecule of mass 386.3542 +/- 5 ppm? What about a neutral
fragment loss of 43.0184 +/- 100 ppm? Assume Carbon,
