  • The Effect of Different Amounts of Sodium Chloride on the Displacement of Oxygen

    1249 Words  | 3 Pages

    DESCRIPTIVE TITLE The Effect of Different Amounts of Sodium Chloride on the displacement of oxygen. INTRODUCTION The dependability of the rate of an enzyme-mediated reaction is based on two factors: the substrate concentration and the concentration and action of the enzyme that catalyzes the reaction (Vander, et. al., 2001). Enzymes are catalysts that produce chemical reactions in cells. Enzymes which are large proteins perform a reaction which acts upon a substance known as a substrate. When

  • Amount Of Rock Salt

    1064 Words  | 3 Pages

    Title: Would increasing the amount of rock salt in the production of ice cream, create a more usable ice cream? Purpose: This experiment was used to see if there was a correlation between the amount of rock salt and the height of an ice cream structure. Background Information: Rock salt or “halite” (Rubin, Ken) is a variation of salt or NaCl. Rock salt is formed when salt water is evaporated, leavening behind positive Na atoms and negative Cl ions. You can find Rock salt in many places like

  • The Effects of Increasing the Concentration of Sodium Thiosulphate When Reacting with Hydrochloric Acid

    H2O every time I lower the concentration of sodium thiosulphate by 10cm3. I will observe the 8 experiments repeated 3 times each. Each experiment I will have different amounts of concentration of sodium thiosulphate starting with 90cm3 and I will keep a constant amount of HCL of 10cm3 and I will also add different amounts of H2O starting with 10cm3 and increasing as the concentration of sodium thiosulphate decreases. How am I going to make it a fair test I will use a clean flask for every

  • PC or Mainframe

    1202 Words  | 3 Pages

    Executive Statement A mainframe is a very large, powerful, dedicated, multi-tasking computer where enormous amounts of data are processed, sometimes millions of records a day. The mainframe is set up for specific applications and those applications only; which is totally different from a Personal Computer (PC). A mainframe runs a custom operating system specifically written for particular applications while a PC has a generic operating system such as Windows and is built to handle many different

    are essential to all body systems. The six classes are water, minerals, vitamins, proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Most anyone, who swallows food throughout the day, has these kinds of nutrients; however, most people ingest them in the wrong amounts or with excess food that is useless. Water is the most important of all the nutrients. An athlete depends on water. Water is necessary for all energy production in the body, temperature control, and elimination of the by-products of respiration

  • Sodium Thiosulphate Rates of Reaction

    1440 Words  | 3 Pages

    the newspaper beneath the flask can no longer be read. Both the Sodium Thiosulphate and the Hydrochloric acid are soluble in water, so the concentration of either can be changed. However I am going to use varying amounts of Sodium Thiosulphate acid and H2O but I will keep the amount of Hydrochloric Acid constant. This is difficult factor to investigate as the readings are recorded by human reactions, which could differ due to the inevitabilities of a human error. According to the collision

    that the experiment is fair and that different cans may be of different thicknesses so allowing different amounts of heat through. I will keep the amount of water that I put inside the tin can, the same for each experiment to be fair. I will decide on this amount from my preliminary experiment. The time for each experiment will also be kept the same to ensure the water has had equal amounts of time for it to heat up, again I will decide on the time from my preliminary experiment. The independent

  • The Meat Industry

    968 Words  | 2 Pages

    The Meat Industry The cattle industry produces vast amounts of strain in the environment. It is energy inefficient, pollutes water, occupies many acres of land, and deteriorates the health of the people who abuse its consumption. The government subsidizes this industry. Therefore, the price paid for meat doesn’t reflect the environmental hazards involved in the process. In order to protect our health and the health of the environment we should pay close attention to our food choices and make sure

    over 3 weeks to find out the effect light has on the growth of pea plants. It will take place in an environment with controlled light, with equal amounts of plants being grown in the light and in the dark. All elements of the experiment other than light will be kept the same, such as amount of seeds in each pot, amount of soil in each pot and amount of water given to each plant each day. This will ensure a fair experiment. Prediction: I predict that in general, the plants grown in the light

  • Biodiversity

    Biodiversity is different is each part of the world. Not every part of the world contains the same amount of creatures yet there are parts of the world that might contain similar amounts. These regions of the world have similar weather patterns and therefore similar species will develop there but they are not necessarily the same. One of the more important regions of the world that contain a large amount of biodiversity is the tropical rainforest region. “The forests comprise roughly 7% of the dry land

(Hamlet pg.18 paragraph 3) I strongly agree with this statement because Hamlet is continually showing huge amounts of grief throughout the play. Even in his opening words in the play he shows some amount of grief to his uncle, the new king, and his mother. His mother basically says that his father is dead, and that there is no bringing him back. So what good does it do for him to weep and mourn? Hamlet
