    Decomposition is a natural process of dead animal or plant tissue will rot and break down. The process is fungi and bacteria. Plants and animals can be recycled. Anything that is living on earth will die at some point. most plants naturally complete their life cycle and die within a year. a 40 kg pig is a resembles to the human body in its fat distribution cover of hair and ability to attract insects. these factors make pigs more like humans when it comes to understanding how the process of decay

    Decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide Aim: My aim in this experiment is to investigate the effect of changing the concentration of the substance (Hydrogen Peroxide) in an enzyme controlled reaction. Prediction: I predict that the higher the amount of Hydrogen Peroxide I use then the faster the displacement reaction will be. Therefore, the less substrate I use then the slower the displacement reaction will be. Hypothesis: I performed a preliminary experiment to distinguish the amount of

    An Investigation into the Decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide Aim: To investigate the rate of decomposition of H2O2 with different amounts of catalyst (MnO2). Hypothesis: When H2O2 and a catalyst are mixed together, the catalyst would break down H2O2 into water and oxygen. This will result in bubbles being produced. With the data of these oxygen bubbles, the rate at which H2O2 decomposed could be found out. 2H2O2 (l) à2H2O + O2 The controlwould be to maintain the same temperature

    Analysis of the Decomposition Rate of Hydrogen Peroxide With Catalase As a Catalyst Aim: To measure the rate of decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide with Catalase from a Yeast solution using PH as a variable. Hypothesis: The enzyme Catalase speeds up the Hydrogen Peroxide decomposition as its active sites match the shape of the Hydrogen Peroxide molecule. This process will only work at certain PH levels as the Enzyme sites may become disfigured at extremes. Logic suggests that Catalase will

    Investigating Factors Affecting the Rate of the Decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide Aim: To see how the rate of the decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide is affected by the concentration of Hydrogen Peroxide. [IMAGE]Prediction: I know that Hydrogen Peroxide is unstable and gradually breaks down into water and oxygen over time. The equation for this reaction is 2H2O2*(aq) 2H2O (l) + O2 (g). I think that the higher the concentration, the faster the rate of reaction will be. I think this

    Determining the Correct Equation for the Decomposition of Copper Carbonate Introduction and background information: Important points to note: ‘At room temperature, 25°C and atmospheric pressure at 1 atmosphere, I mole of any gas will occupy a volume of 24 dm³.’ We will need this to work out how much copper carbonate to decompose to obtain a sufficient amount of carbon dioxide gas. To work out the amount of copper carbonate to use I will need to use the following equations: Number

    Factors Affecting the Decomposition of Marble Buildings by Acid Rain Background Acid Rain: Nitrogen acids and sulphur dioxides come out of tall chimneys and vehicles. These go into the air, and air currents carry the gases away, and they react with water vapour and oxygen. This produces H2SO4 (sulphuric acid) and HNO3 (nitric acid). The acids become part of a cloud, and it falls down to earth, as acid rain or snow. This can end up miles away from the original source. The acid rain removes nutrients

    Investigation of the Thermal Decomposition of Copper Carbonate Aim: Copper has two oxides, Cu2O, and CuO. Copper carbonate, CuCO3 decomposes on heating to form one of these oxides and an equation can be written for each possible reaction Equation 1: 2CuCO3 (s) Cu2O (s) + 2CO2 (g) + O2 (g) Equation 2: CuCO3 (s) CuO (s) + CO2 (g) The aim of this experiment is to prove which equation is correct. This can be done by volumetric analysis i.e. calculating the volume of gas produced. This is then

    changes that cause it to change its appareance. Observing these changes can help forensic scientists determine the post-mortem interval (or time since death), which is very important when it comes to investigating unnatural deaths. The stages of decomposition are: fresh stage, bloat stage, active decay, advanced decay, and dry stage. [1] The fresh stage begins right after the heart stops beating. When the blood stops being pumped, gravity makes it settle and it changes the color of the skin where it
