The Process of Porting and Polishing a Cylinder Head

- Porting and Polishing is a step by step process. There are many steps to Porting and Polishing, six to be exact. There are many tools that will be needed in this process too. Porting and Polishing is just basically when you just smooth out the ports where the air flows through the head into the cylinder without restriction. You will get two effects out of this. You will have more horsepower do to colder and more denser air. You will also get better gas mileage. This research paper will discuss how to port and polish a head....   [tags: automobile mechanics, engine tune up]

In the first experiment, we are testing water, sucrose solution, salt solution, and hydrogen peroxide to see which can increase the bubbles. So we can understand that enzyme producing chemical reactions in the speed. In the second experiment, we are using temperature of room, boiling water, refrigerator, and freezer to see what will effect the enzyme....   [tags: Water, Chemistry, Heat, PH]

Investigating the Effects Catalyse Has on Hydrogen Peroxide Solution

- Investigating the Effects Catalyse Has on Hydrogen Peroxide Solution Aim: I am going to investigate the effects which catalyse has on a hydrogen peroxide solution Preliminary work We would use potato to do the experiment because we had done a previous experiment when we put a piece of potato and liver into a hydrogen peroxide solution and the rate of reaction for the liver was too fast to measure and time. But the potato had a slower reaction which will be easier to time and we can measure the size of the froth using a ruler....   [tags: Papers]

Enzymes That Have A Catalytic Action

- Enzymes are proteins that have a catalytic action in living organisms. A catalyst is a chemical compound that increases the rate of reaction “…without increasing the amount of products involved and without themselves being altered during the reaction”. Therefore, as enzymes are not altered during the chemical reaction, they are reusable. However, enzymes do not increase the amount of final product, they only increase the rate of reaction. For a biochemical reaction to take place a substrate must bind to the active site of an enzyme....   [tags: Enzyme, Hydrogen peroxide, Catalase, Chemistry]
