    1262 Words  | 3 Pages

    Osmosis in Potato Cylinders Aim: Trying to find the average sugar concentration in the potato cylinder cells. I will use potatoes for my experiment because they are convenient and shows fast results in osmosis. [IMAGE]The diagram to the right shows a basic plant cell, however, the difference between this diagram and the potato cells I will be using is that the potato will not be green as it does not need chlorophyll. The cell membranes in a potato cylinder are partially permeable;

  • The Process of Porting and Polishing a Cylinder Head

    694 Words  | 2 Pages

    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. First step would be

    Comparing an Eight Cylinder Camaro and a Six Cylinder Camaro The purpose of this report is to compare the six-cylinder Camaro (RS), to the eight-cylinder Camaro (Z/28) to see which one is most suitable. The specific areas I studied, based on primary and secondary sources are Performance, Gas Mileage and Price of each automobile. The Z/28 and the R/S are simply two models of a Chevrolet sport-car based on options. The Camaro has become a legend dominating the market for more than three decades

    Cyrus Cylinder The Cyrus Cylinder was found in Babylon (modern day Iraq) during the 1800s, it is originally from the ancient world. This small piece of clay from 539 BCE has a pretty modern message, it is the first document stating human rights. During this time you typically would not expect something like this. Usually, the king would not have a lot of regards for his people. However, King Cyrus the Great changed this during victor's justice. The people did not know much about their new ruler.

  • History of the Development of Brakes

    the wheel cylinder. Pushrods in the cylinder then apply pressure to both shoes, overcoming the spring tension and pressing the shoes against the drum. Hydraulic drum brakes can also be mechanically activated as parking brakes by a cable attached to the lever. When pressure is removed from the brake pedal, springs on the brake shoes force the shoes back to their normal released position. This movement of the shoes forces the pistons inward, returning the fluid to the master cylinder reservoir

    This report is an ekphrasis of John Hejduk’s drawing “Study for Wall House.” Ekphrasis writings intend to compare and unite elements that may be physically visible and elements that may be more conceptual. This report will endeavor to visualize Hejduk’s drawing through the views of physical and metaphysical elements, to expose connections through visual and conceptual perspectives. Located within the silent forest of special collections is Hejduk’s drawing, “Study for Wall House.” The temperature

    Scalpel Beakers Weighing Scales Method ====== A standard sized cylinder of potato tissue is put into a beaker. Using a cork borer of a known size, in order to cut the cylinder of tissue, carries this out. This prepared cylinder has all peel tissue removed from its surface, and is cut into a standard length, using a scalpel. The mass of each cylinder of potato is weighed and recorded. One prepared cylinder of tissue is placed into each beaker, ensuring all surfaces are fully submerged

    the barrel, the upper section, the lower section, and the bell. The length of the entire instrument is 60 cm long. The mouthpiece section consists of a slotted cylinder, to which a reed is attached by a metal clamp called a ligature. The mouthpiece plugs into the next section which is a barrel. The barrel is simply a connecting cylinder to which the mouthpiece and the upper section plugs into. The upper section is a cylindrical pipe consisting of 4 holes and 9 keys placed in different locations

    Method ------ Apparatus Required ------------------ * Water bath * Thermometer * Measuring cylinder * Steel ball bearing * Micrometer * Balance * Honey (100cm3) * Stopwatch * Ruler Plan ---- * Measure the radius of the ball bearing and also find its weight. * Find the mass of the honey. Weighing an empty measuring cylinder and then the same cylinder with the honey in it does this. The difference in the two recordings is the mass of the honey. * Find

  • The Physics of Turbo Charging

    piston. As the piston descends in the cylinder for the first time a mixture of gasoline and air is pulled into the cylinder through an open valve. As he piston moves back up in the cylinder the valve closes and the mixture is compressed in the combustion chamber. As the piston reaches the top of the cylinder a spark is fired from the spark plug. This spark ignites the mixture and it expands at a very fast rate. This explosion forces the piston down in the cylinder again. On the next rise the left over

    economically inefficient. The reasons for the inefficiency was the cylinder had to be heated when steam was admitted and then slowly cooled down again to condense the steam. This process wasted a lot of time, energy, and steam. As he was wandering through Glasgow Green he struck upon an idea that would revolutionize the steam engine. This idea was "that in order to make the best use of the steam it was necessary that first, that the cylinder should always remain as hot as the steam which entered it; secondly

    mind that we have limited time and shall be conducting our experiments in a laboratory, measuring certain things may therefore be impractical. We shall therefore limit our investigation to the effect of three things: Cross-sectional area of plant cylinder, concentration of solution and temperature of solution. Variables There are three main types of variable; Independent (input), control and dependent variables. An independent variable, otherwise known as an input variable, is the variable

  • The Effect of the Concentration of Hydrochloric Acid on the Amount of Hydrogen

    550 Words  | 2 Pages

    Hydrochloric acid affects the amount of hydrogen or the time it takes to produce 30cm3 of gas, when the Hydrochloric acid reacts with the magnesium powder. Prediction ========== I predict that the amount of hydrogen in the measuring cylinder will increase as the concentration increases; this is because if there is more concentration there shall be more particles for the magnesium to collide with so the reaction will be faster. I think that my prediction is true because if you increase

  • Superchargers

    1364 Words  | 3 Pages

    referred to as a “blower”, is a mechanism for forcing or “blowing” air into an internal-combustion engine in order to increase engine power. The power of an engine is directly related to the amount of air it can consume, mix with fuel, and burn in its cylinders, and therefore the more air that can be forced into the engine, the more power the engine can produce. However, in a non-“blown” engine, only a certain amount can be forced in. In order to understand the workings and importance of a supercharger

    Method ====== The volume of each boiling tube was calculated, and then 2 tubes were half-filled with 0.1M sucrose solution, 2 tubes were filled with 0.3M sucrose solution, while the final 2 tubes were filled with 0.5M sucrose solution. Then 6 cylinders of potato were cut from the tuber using the cork borer. These were then all cut down to 20mm in length using the scalpel. They were then dried with the paper towel to remove excess water before being weighed on the electric balance. The weight
