As a result of the lack of sufficient domestic demand in Canada, only a small number of larger firms are developed in each industry. Furthermore, Canadian firms seldom treat research and development as a priority. Unlike in the US, innovation is not a corporate culture in Canada. This can be partly due to the lack of intense domestic competition, causing firms to spend resources on other areas instead of R&D because there is no real urge to innovate and maintain competitiveness. The government also plays a major role in determining the level of domestic competition.

I can not make my experiment perfect as the are some limitations to my equipment. To obtain more evidence with osmosis I could improve certain addition aspects like the amount of solution in the test tubes, so that you could get results on whether the amount of solution affects the amount of osmosing a potato chip can do. Some potatoes could have more sugar in than others, so to extend my investigation I could produce results on which potatoes have more protein in.
Alternative energy can be used by an electric car instead of a standard car today. By using the electric car, there would be zero emissions entering the atmosphere and hurting the environment and others around the land. Fossil fuels are eventually going to run out unlike water and solar power. There is not an endless supply of fossil fuels and thats why more people should start to convert to alternative energy. What if one day a person was running out of gas and saw that the nearest gas station had run out of fuel?
I believe that this will make the potato chip shrivel and become flexible and stringy. This is because t... ... middle of paper ... ...surface area will take on more water in a set time. For example if a potato chip is cut in a wavy shape or is crinkled it could have the same weight as any other potato chip but it would have a larger surface area. This could affect your results. So you must be careful in cutting the same shape potato chips.

Even thought genetic modified food have many benefits in today society there are still some dangers and concerns of the genetic modified food. The faster corps production cannot out weigh the untended consequences that it will cause to the ecosystem. It would change the whole ecosystem and even change the other ecosystem that is near it.
Carbon dioxide is not the only compound that comes from heating biomass materials. Biomass energy is considered to be a renewable source of power but it’s difficult to prove that it’s completely an efficient and clean source of energy. Inefficient Biodiesel products like ethanol is very ineffective as compared to gasoline and you are always forced to mix it with some little amount of gasoline to make it efficient. It’s also important to note that long term of ethanol is not recommended as it can damage the engine. Can Cause
The truth of the matter is, no renewable energy can match the efficiency of fossil fuels. Alternative fuel is any other way of producing power or electricity without using fossil fuels.

No renewable energy source has matched the efficiency of coal and that is precisely why people prefer the ease of just flicking on the light switch without even understanding where it came from. In order to make the switch we will need to look at everything in the long term.
“I am between a rock and a hard place when it comes to solar power,” states Ted Hilmes, CEO of KAMO Power. “I love the idea of a clean source of energy that does not deplete the earth’s non-renewable resources, but I hate the fact that if solar power were to take over the electric game, KAMO would have to reevaluate how we make our income.” Hilmes shares this opinion with a substantial amount of other energy companies that utilize fossil fuels in order to carry out their day-to-day activities; however, the popularity of solar power is on the rise—whether electric companies are on board with the trend or not. Without energy progressing throughout the past, the human race would not have been able to evolve from what is recognized as the Stone Age to the technological era that is known today. Coal, wind, water, solar— the list is endless when it comes to both non-renewable and renewable resources that are used to power this world that we call Earth. A large portion of politicians and business associates despise the fact that solar power’s popularity is steadily increasing with the drop in production cost; nevertheless, solar power is a dream come true to the rest of the world.
Osmosis in Potato Chips Preliminary Experiment to investigate Osmosis 1M Sugar 50:50 0M (water) Initial mass 2.40 2.05 2.34 Final mass 2.01 1.85 2.43 Change in mass -0.39 -0.21 0.09 % change in mass -12.5% -10.5% 3.84% Evaluation From doing our preliminary experiment it enables us to gain a better result for our real experiment. From this experiment we have learnt a few things through trial and error, for example. If we had used a wider variety of concentrations, our results would have been more accurate. By using a syringe to measure the solution we would have also got a more accurate result. We could have also weighed the potato chips more accurately so they were roughly the same size with no skin.
To measure the tubers I think I would use a digital measurer that goes to two decimal places for accuracy and it would go to the same accuracy level as the top pan balance. I would also increase the amount molar amounts I use, such as 0.25 and 0.75. one explanation for the bad results is when the potato chips were removed from the test tubes and dried I may well have dried some potatoes more thoroughly than others and so some would have more excess water, which would add to the mass. If the experiment was repeated I could find another way to dry the potatoes that would ensure that all were dried in the same way for the same time. I were to repeat the experiment I would have possibly found a machine to cut the potato as it would ensure that all potatoes would be the same weight and dimensions. As well as the potato I could have found a more accurate way to measure out the solutions and to determine the molar concentrations.
