Based on observing the organisms living in the creek, the water quality of the U-High creek was excellent. However, not all bodies of water have excellent water quality. Most bodies of water with below average water quality are affected by humans. One way humans could negatively impact water quality is through runoff. It is common for farmers to put many pesticides and fertilizers on their crops, but these substances can be washed into rivers and add extra nitrate and phosphorus into the water.
The vaginas ph plays a vital role in the its health a fertility. The normal ph range for the vagina stays between 3.8 to 4.5, which is slightly acidic. When the ph increase it makes the vagina more neutral causing the bad bacteria to thrive and overgrow. Thus, causing infections. During the time of ovulation, the vagina ph should be neutral, ranging from a ph of 7 to 14.
The temperature in our experiment was not very high which didn’t result in denaturation of peroxidase. The temperature seemed to be a constant that didn’t affect the experiment. If the temperature was higher in pH 3 and low in pH 10, then it would cause pH 3 to denature even more which would make the pH 3 total about 4.0. Substrate concentration basically means the amount used for the substrate. The substrate in our experiment was 0.1% hydrogen peroxide.
This is because, unlike other types of mercury compounds like methylmercury, ethylmercury can clear through the bloodstream extremely quickly, meaning that pollution of the environment with Thimerosal will not lead to negative effects on the tertiary consumers of ecosystems (such as large fish). The lack of bioaccumulation and incredibly small concentrations of pollutant is why the chemical Thimerosal has negligible negative effects on the environment and thus, environmental worries are not ground for placing the chemical on the ban
Did you know that it takes about 1/4 of the bottle filled with oil just to make the bottle? That means that it takes more than 17 million barrels of oil to produce these plastic bottles. In my opinion, I think that tap water is more safe for us to drink and also, more safe for the environment. Human Safety is one of the major problems with bottled water and tap water. Bottled water does not contain any toxins or chemicals that are bad for humans.
What also affected the growth was the combination of the ammonium and ammonia at different concentrations. The conclusion that I made of this study was that ammonia and ammonium are duckweeds best source of nitrogen which they need for survival, but in high enough concentrations and with a strong enough acid, the effects the NH3 and NH4 had on the duckweed could be damaging towards its growth. All of the people who were involved with this study have their doctorates in water research, meaning that the results obtained will be accurate and reliable, making this a valid
According to the data in my experiment, lemon oil cleaned better than Clorox in both the girls bathroom and on the elementary handrail. But my results were still somewhat inconclusive. In the case of the girls bathroom the results weren’t too messy, there was 23.6% bacteria on the surface before I cleaned it, and after I cleaned it with Clorox the amount of bacteria was reduced by 20% to 3.6%. However, after I cleaned it with lemon oil it was reduced to only .9% bacteria which is 2.7% less bacteria than when I cleaned it with Clorox.
So there is no risk of a community out break, unless the bacteria is found in the communities water supply. Unlike Pontiac fever, Legionnaires disease is fatal if left untreated. The disease can be treated with antibiotics, because the bacteria multiplies in the cell, the antibiotics used are excellent intercellular penetrator. Most commonly used antibiotic are levofloxacin, azithromycin. In order to prevent the spread of Legionella bacteria the health department would need to preform regular water sample test.
Synthetic Sea delves deeper into the environmental burden that plastic is placing on the oceans. It shows the effects on not only the oceans, but on animal life as well. (2) Tamara explains why she feels that tap water is superior to bottled. Some of her reasoning for this is that bottled water regulation enforcement is the job of only one person who also possesses additional responsibilities. The evidence also found that bottled water is no cleaner than tap water when tested.
Because of its simplicity, a greywater recycling system is the best way to preserve and recycle water. It is a manageable system that can be operated by all people and even businesses around the world. Greywater can be “used untreated, or it can be treated to varying degrees to reduce nutrients and disease-causing pathogens” (“Pros and Cons of Grey Water”). The appropriate uses of greywater depend on both the source of greywater and the level of treatment. A greywater recycling system can “reduce one’s water usage by about 50%” so in theory, one could potentially cut their water bills in half as well as reduce their water footprint ("What Are the Benefits of Water Conservation?”).
Lake Erie has been a huge topic for Ohioans due to how polluted the water is. Lake Erie is Ohio's biggest water source, and that being polluted is not good for Ohio and other states that use Lake Erie’s water. Though this is not the first time this has happened before, in 1960 the lake was VERY polluted due to heavy industries lined up on the shore lines. Lake Erie called the “Dead Lake” for how much pollution was in it, and how many dead fish there were.
Lake Erie Hurry, Lake Erie needs your help! In 1960 there was severe pollution in Lake Erie and now, 3 years later, the pollution is back and has created an extensive amount of algae. In the 1960s Lake Erie was extremely polluted. “As a result of these pollutants, Lake Erie contained increased levels of phosphorus and nitrogen, which contributed to eutrophication - a process that encourages the development of algal blooms.” (Michael Rotman).
Water Pollution in San Joaquin Valley San Joaquin Valley is a place that stretches from 7 different counties such as Stanislaus to Kern county. San Joaquin Valley is known for their agriculture land since the late 19th century, which feeds most of the United States with the vegetables and fruits that are grown in the valley. The rich life of life in agricultural fields rely on the water supply that the valley contains such as groundwater and water on shore. Throughout the past decades, the water quality in San Joaquin Valley becomes to decrease from clean water to polluted water.
The objective of the Unknown White Compound experiment was to investigate the compound’s physical and chemical properties to correctly identify and then synthesize the compound. The first step was to test the compounds solubility and create a solution with distilled water. Next, a pH test was conducted by testing the unknown compound using pH paper. Following, the flame test was used to determine the cation and the ion test was used to determine the anion, which concluded the compound to mostly be potassium nitrate. Next, a conductivity probe and pH probe were used to confirm the unknown compound to be potassium nitrate.
