On Tuesday in lab, we were first asked to brainstorm ideas for clocks. Some of the things we thought of that could be used as a clock were a simple pendulum, sun dial, your pulse, and drips from a leaky faucet. Then, we spent the rest of our time testing out the drippy faucet idea by poking a hole in the bottom of a cup, placing it above a graduated cylinder, filling it with water, and timing how long it took for the drips to fill up 10mL. While the hole was dripping out water, we had to continually put more water in the cup so that the pressure was consistent throughout the entire experiment. If we did not do this, the water could drip faster or slower depending on how much water was in the cup. We tested the amount of time it took to get*…show more content…*

This helped us realize that a drippy faucet was an accurate clock. Lastly, we created sundials by tracing a protractor and then marking off intervals of 15 degrees, which were the time intervals starting with 6AM on the left side and ending with 6PM on the right. Then we stuck the screw through the paper in the middle of the bottom straight line.

Thursday in lab, we first found the spring constant of our spring hooked onto our stand by timing the period it took for a 50g weight to oscillate back and forth. We timed the oscillation ten time and then found the average which was .77 seconds. We then used this information along with a formula to find the spring constant which we found to be 3,329.26 g/s^2. We then repeated this same experiment with a 100 g weight, and found the spring constant to be 3,580.8 g/s^2. Since these numbers are roughly the same, we know that our true spring constant is around these two numbers. Next, we timed the oscillation of a 100 g weight hooked onto a 29 cm string. After ten trials we found the average time period for the 100g weight to be 1.24 seconds. Then we tested the 50g weight and found the average period to be 1.17 seconds. As you can see, even though we changed the mass, the period of time it

An additional 10 ml of caustic soda was poured in the beaker and stirred for 10 minutes to mix thoroughly. In between the stirring, remaining 30 ml of 17.5% caustic soda was added at 2.5, 5 and 7.5 minutes in installments of 10 ml each. This mixture was allowed to remain in the beaker for 30 minutes further, making the total treatment time of 45 minutes from the beginning.

The second test tube was exactly the same as the first, the only difference being that the SPM was this time set to 35oC. The temperature of the SPM gets increased by 1oC for every test tube solution, until test tube 7 with an SPM temperature of 40oC. After all the absorbencies for the varying temperatures had been recorded – the product concentration of each test tube solution was calculated using the absorbency readings at 10 minutes for each respective test tube mixture. The product concentration was calculated using Beer-Lamberts’ law of A = ECL.

After the hour ended we retrieved our plants and weighed them using the same scale, ensuring accurate measurements. We subtracted the final weights from the initial weights, getting the change of weight in milliliters (or the milliliters of water transpired). Next, to find out the total leaf surface area for each plant, we cut off the leaves of our bean plants and then traced them onto a piece of paper. We weighed the pile of paper leaves and multiplied it by the average weight of four/five sheets of 10 by 10 centimeters squared paper, which is .8192 grams.

Fertilization: Washed eggs are transferred into containers of 10-12 liters whereas about a million ovules are placed in 1-um filtered and UV-irradiated seawater and at 17 – 18 °C. Fertilization is carried out by adding one ml of sperm solution with approx.

Our group established a hypothesis that stated; sodium chloride will make the yam cores weigh less than in water. In order to start experimenting, we obtained 10 yam cores, weighed them and placed them in five cups that contained 50 mL of water. At 10-minute intervals, we would take them out and weigh them again for 30 minutes. We repeated this experiment using another five set of cups that contained 50 mL of 1M sodium chloride.
