Question 87 - According to Hardy-Weinberg Equation, p x p + 2 x p x q + q x q = 1 where p = dominant allele frequency and q = recessive allele frequency. Let p + q = 1. Fraction of population has 2 copies of the p gene = p x p. Fraction of population has 2 copies of the q gene = q x q. Fraction of population has a copy of p gene and a copy of q gene = 2 x p x q. In a small town, the allele frequency is q = 0.2 for a recessive gene, the delta-32 mutation, that gives human protection from HIV infection. (a) Find the allele frequency a dominant gene, p. (b) What percent of the population has at least a copy of the gene that cause the population either immune to HIV or less susceptible to the disease?

Question 87 - According to Hardy-Weinberg Equation, p x p + 2 x p x q + q x q = 1 where p = dominant..

Answer 87 - (a) Let p + q = 1, then p = 1 - q = 1 - 0.2 = 0.8. (b) Percentage of population has 2 copies of the p gene = p x p x 100 = 0.8 x 0.8 x 100 = 64 %. Percentage of population has at least a copy of the q gene = (1 - Fraction of population has 2 copies of the p gene) x 100 = (1 - p x p) x 100 = (1 - 0.8 x 0.8) x 100 = (1 - 0.64) x 100 = 36 %.

Question 38 - The terminal velocity of a falling object, v is given by v = sqrt [ 4g (R - r) D / (3Cr) ] where sqrt is the square root of, g = 9.81, D = 0.000208, R = 1800, r = 994.6, m = 0.000893. The Reynold number, L is given by L = rD (v) / m. The C for various conditions are : C = 24 / L for L < 0.1; C = 24 (1 + 0.14 L^0.7) / L for 0.1 <= L <= 1000; C = 0.44 for 1000 < L <= 350000; C = 0.19 - 80000 / L for 350000 < L.
