    Should this be Weeks or Week?

    Ten weeks old jack pines were exposted to S0 concentrations from 3.9 to 39 mmol.

    Ten weeks or ten week?

    Thanks!

    .
    The rest of the sentence appears to discuss concentrations of sulphur oxides (?). (Science is not my cup of tea. ) Possibly "exposted" is a typo and should be "exposed"...? Maybe crussell will enlighten us.

    I agree about "exposed". SO is sulfur monoxide and is an unstable compound (SO2 is the more common form.) I would also say concentration of 3.9 to 39 mmol per [some volume - usually liter]
