    Investigating the Water Potential of Celery Cells Aim === I will be investigating the water potential of celery and to find out which solution will be isotonic with the celery cells, in other words equilibrium between the two no water will leave the cell, or enter. I will do this by following this method. Method 1. Cut a 5 cm length of celery stem 2. Cut through the grooves to divide the stem into thin strips 3. Dry the cell sap from the strips using a paper towel 4.

    Healing Benefits of Celery and Natural Ways to Use it Celery is a plant that can be found all over the world. It is mostly used in kitchen to enhance every cuisine in most countries. Celery leaves are rich in vitamin A. Its stems are great source of vitamins C, B1, B2 and B6. Celery stems also have calcium, folate, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, potassium, amino acids and sodium. Healing Benefits of Celery Reduces Blood Pressure Phthalides, a phytochemical found in celery helps in lowering blood

    Getting to Know Celery – More than Just a Crunch Celery curatives have been used throughout history. A good source of insoluble fiber, celery contains compounds that potentially help prevent cancer and aid in lowering high blood pressure. Although it is high in organic sodium, celery salt is poles apart from table salt. We need the alkalinity in organic sodium to help neutralize acidity from inadequate nutrition and stressful lifestyles. Otherwise, the body robs stored minerals, such as in the

  • What pH the Enzyme Named Peroxidase Works Best At

    1412 Words  | 6 Pages

    find the enzyme peroxidase if we grind up celery, or most other animal and plants. A chemical reaction in plants and animals produce hydrogen peroxide, this can poison them if it is allowed to accumulate. The enzyme peroxidase acts as a catalyst for decomposing hydrogen peroxide, it is broken down into water and oxygen. The reaction is: 2H20 = 2H20 + O2 (Aq) (L) (G) I plan to measure the amount of oxygen given off by the celery at different pHs and whichever pH helps the

  • Testing the Rate of Reaction for Catalysts

    1094 Words  | 5 Pages

    Testing the Rate of Reaction for Catalysts Introduction Enzymes are produced in cells. They are proteins that act as catalysts. Catalysts are chemical substances that speed up reactions but do not get used up during the reaction. A single enzyme can be used as many times over. An example of how an enzyme molecule might join two other molecules together and form a more complicated substance is shown below. Reactions in which large molecules are created from small molecules are called

    detoxifying the body. Nettle Tea Stinging nettle is a prickly plant that has been found helpful in relieving discomfort particularly in the joints. It contains active compounds that reduces inflammatory cytokines. Cytokines are the messengers between the cells that causes inflammation due to immune response. The compound found in nettle leaves inhibits the protein that activates cytokines in the tissues lining the joints. Nettle tea may not sound the most inviting but its cost efficient, easy to access,

  • How Hydrogen Peroxide Affects the Rate of Reaction of the Enzyme Catalase

    3805 Words  | 16 Pages

    Catalase, like all enzymes, is made up of protein molecules. It can be found in the cytoplasm of living tissue. It speeds up the decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide, a metabolic waste product, into water and oxygen that can safely be removed from the cell. The type of reaction involved is known as a catabolic reaction (i.e. substrate broken down.)This is simply because the substrate enters the active site and is broken down, and leaves as 2 separate products, in this case water and oxygen:

    enzyme: Catalase is an enzyme found within the cells of many different plants and animals. In this case, it is found in celery. This enzyme speeds up the break down of hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen, as enzymes are biological catalysts.

    The effect of catalase concentration on the breakdown rate of h2o2 The effect of catalase concentrations on the rate of Break down of hydrogen peroxide Scientific knowledge and understanding: A rate is a measure of change that occurs in a given time whilst a reaction is the interaction of substances undergoing chemical change. The velocity at which any mix of substances are transformed into a product/s in a given unit of time is the rate of reaction. The speed at which this modification
