In both novels there are similar themes, they both use the idea of sex and money as a form of power. Both novels can relate to each other because the authors decided to show how the pursuit of the American dream may not always be a good thing, and how sex and money can cause problems in that pursuit....   [tags: essays research papers fc]

Potato chips experiment - Investigate the effects of different concentrations of salt solution on potato cells Introduction Osmosis is the way in which many living things take up water (source: GCSE Biology for You). During osmosis, water moves from a dilute solution to a more concentrated solution through a semi-permeable membrane. This membrane allows water molecules to pass through easily, but does not allow solute molecules to do this. The movement of these water molecules gradually dilutes the solution that had the higher concentration until they are equal, or as close to equal as possible....   [tags: Papers] 2088 words

How Osmosis affects Potato chips in Different Concentrations - How Osmosis affects Potato chips in Different Concentrations Background: Osmosis is the movement of water molecules across a partially permeable membrane from a region high water concentration to low water concentration. A partially permeable membrane is a membrane with tiny holes in so small that only water molecules can pass through. When you place a potato chip in a salt or sugar solution, then if the potato has higher water potential some of the water will diffuse into the Sal solution which will cause the chip to lose weight....   [tags: Papers] 2689 words

Finding Out the Changes of Mass in Potato Chips Due to Osmosis - Finding Out the Changes of Mass in Potato Chips Due to Osmosis Aim: We have been asked to investigate the effect that osmosis has on potato chips. Prediction: I predict that the potato cylinder in the lowest sugar solution (water) will gain the most mass through osmosis, whereas the 80% sugar concentration will lose the most mass through osmosis. I predict this because I think that the potato chips will try to gain and lose water between the two sides of its cell wall in order to reach an equilibrium between them....   [tags: Papers] 1683 words

How the concentration of an acid affects the rate of reaction on marble chips - How the concentration of an acid affects the rate of reaction on marble chips Background: These different speeds of reaction are referred to as their rates. The rate of reaction depends on how often and how hard the reacting particles collide with each other. Particles have to collide in order to react, and the have to collide hard enough as well. This is called the collision theory. When the temperature is increased the particles all move quicker. If they are moving quicker then they are going to have more collisions....   [tags: GCSE Chemistry Coursework Investigation] 1986 words
