  • Single Displacement Reaction Lab

    860 Words  | 2 Pages

    this lab is to determine the empirical formula of copper oxide (CuxOy) through a single-displacement reaction that extracts the copper (Cu) from the original compound. In order to do this, hydrochloric acid (HCl) was mixed in with solid CuxOy; the mixture was stirred until the CuxOy was totally dissolved in the solvent. Zinc (Zn) was then added to the solution as a way to enact a single displacement reaction in which Cu begin to form on the Zn; the Cu gets knocked off the Zn through gentle stirring

    Investigation into the Factors that Affect the Enthalpy Change During a Displacement Reaction The Task -------- To investigate the factors affecting the enthalpy change during a displacement reaction. Background Knowledge ==================== In this investigation a displacement reaction will be observed. A displacement reaction occurs when more reactive metal displaces, (or removes) a less reactive metal from a solution of its salt. Also known as chemical bullying because

  • Decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide

    737 Words  | 2 Pages

    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 yeast I will use for the actual experiment. 0

    Computer Job Displacement „New ideas go through three stages. 1. It's impossible – don't waste my time! 2. It's possible but not worth doing. 3. I always said that it was a good idea." Science-fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke We are masters of our own fate… we invented it…we have to live with it…we have to adjust our lives to it…so what is there to do? What do you do after you created a computer industry witch has a wide range of activities based on the manufacture and use of computers to

  • Chinese and American Cultures

    4366 Words  | 9 Pages

    Chinese and American Cultures Chinese-Americans authors Amy Tan and Gish Jen have both grappled with the idea of mixed identity in America. For them, a generational problem develops over time, and cultural displacement occurs as family lines expand. While this is not the problem in and of itself, indeed, it is natural for current culture to gain foothold over distant culture, it serves as the backdrop for the disorientation that occurs between generations. In their novels, Tan and Jen pinpoint

  • John Donne's The Sun Rising

    2250 Words  | 5 Pages

    John Donne's The Sun Rising Critics of John Donne's "The Sun Rising" often note that the poem's displacement of the outside world in favor of two lovers' inner world serves to support its overall theme: the centrality of human love amidst a permanent physical universe. In an essay entitled "John Donne," Achsah Guibbory supports this reading of the poem, stating, "The world of love contains everything of value; it is the only one worth exploring and possessing. Hence the microcosmic world of

    Violence as Displacement: The Erotic Gaze in Gladiator and Fight Club On the screen, two men writhe and grapple on the cold concrete floor. One man on top, holding the other from behind in a chokehold that causes the man on the bottom to succumb to the more powerful man. The dialogue by the narrator states that, “Sometimes all you could hear were the flap, hard packing sounds over the yelling, or the wet choke when someone caught their breath and sprayed” (Fight Club). The soundtrack consists

    Cultural Displacement I sidestepped the bald man next to me who was ordering what looked like duck feet, in rapid Malaysian. Looking down at my green plastic tray, like those often found in high school lunch rooms, I saw the square banana leaf piled high with plain white rice looking back. The thought of “foods” like fish eyes, stuffed animal intestine, or any kind of pickled hoof on my rice made my gag reflexes kick into high gear. I paid for my abysmal lunch, a measly dollar fifty US, smiled

  • An Investigation of the Factors Affecting the Period of a Pendulum

    588 Words  | 2 Pages

    An Investigation of the Factors Affecting the Period of a Pendulum I could investigate the following factors: * Angle of displacement * Length of string * Pendulum weight I am going to investigate and see if varying the length of string will affect the period of the pendulum. My prediction is: The longer the string the longer the period. The period will be longer as the pendulum has farther to travel. My theory is demonstrated below. Pendulum A has a shorter string. This gives

    an interesting array of existents, in place of the story line, as the main focus of this narrative. In the following essay, I shall discuss how existents--the collection of characters and setting--are used to invoke feelings of dispossession and displacement in the story "Sandpiper", which are essential in raising the main issue of the story, which is the question of one's identity. Having agreed that the event itself, a summer afternoon spent at a beach-house, is rather inconsequential, we go on

    examination of these tropes, one should develop a critical awareness of the relationship between the sacred and the profane in the Modern context of No Longer At Ease, observing the once-sacred symbols which come into being as metaphors for the displacement of traditional Igbo eschatology and the contemporary presence of a widening gulf between the individual "the sacred." The conflict between "the sacred" as  traditionally defined by the Igbo and that which has been imposed by European

  • Investigating the Oscillations of a Pendulum

    figure below consider a small mass m attached to the end of a length l of wire. The other end is attached to a fixed point P and the mass oscillates along the arc. Suppose the mass during the motion at a point B at an instant, such that OB = y (displacement) and the angle at that moment is θ to PO. The downward force by the mass is mg so towards O it will be horizontal component, that is, mg sin θ. The tension T by the thread is balanced by the vertical component of the force by the bob. So

    longitudinal pulse causes the spring to move parallel to the direction of motion of the pulse. The direction of propagation is at right angles to the wavefront. The displacement at a point is how much the medium has been displaced from its normal position. Displacements are given + or - signs depending on the direction of the displacement. Amplitude is the largest distance from the normal position that the medium is displaced. The wavelength l of a wave is the distance from one point to the next corresponding

  • The Reactivity of Metals

    1339 Words  | 3 Pages

    The Reactivity of Metals Planning: Aim: to put these 5 metals in the order of reactivity. * Iron * Copper * Magnesium * Lead * Zinc Scientific Information: A displacement reaction is where a more reactive element reacts with a compound and pushes out a less reactive element. E.g. magnesium will react with iron sulphate to push the iron out and form magnesium sulphate. I have carried out preliminary experiments and they have shown me that the reactivity of metals and elements
