Britney Saysouly BIOC 3021 Unit 1 Essay 3 February 2018 Potassium When it comes to an element's abundance in the environment versus it's concentration I human cells, it all varies upon what exact element that is being researched. For instance, Calcium will differ from Chlorine, Magnesium, Potassium, and so on. Potassium is the eighth most abundant element on earth and comprises approximately 2.1% of the earth's crust, it is a very reactive element and is never found free in nature (Gagnon, n.d). When it comes to the concentration level in human cells, potassium often plays a big role in that as well. The levels contrast upon whether or not it is an intracellular or extracellular compartment.
You should have composted it because it would have a beneficial outcome for the environment. Composting is beneficial for the environment because it reduces the amount of trash going to landfills and keeps soil fertilized which will result in reducing the number of times that you need to water plants. First of all, composting reduces the amount of trash going to landfills. Composting is a great way to reduce trash going to landfills. Well what is composting!
Other methods used to eliminate anti-nutrients include soaking, fermenting and sprouting. How are anti-nutrients reduced? Another great thing about sprouting is its capacity to significantly reduce anti-nutrients and other harmful substances. One such substance is phytic acid found in many grains. It is a substance that prevents the absorption of calcium, zinc, magnesium and iron.
It is needed for the maintenance of muscle tissue and helps to preserve muscle glycogen. Valine serves as a important fuel sources for skeletal muscle when experiencing times of metabolic stress. It helps to promote protein production, storage and muscle growth. Valine may help treat malnutrition that has to do with drug addiction. Valine is also helpful in synthesis of glucose in your liver especially during activities that don’t have enough oxygen intake.
* Xanthan gum has high pH stability (unlike other gums). * It can create a creamy texture. Xanthan gum is most often found in salad dressings, sauces and gravies helping to stabilize the colloidal oil and solid components, allowing the substances to remain evenly dispersed throughout the solution and preventing them to settle on the bottom of the container. It is acting as an emulsifier (although it is not an emulsifier), encouraging liquids that normally don't like one another to mix together. The xanthan gum also makes dressings and sauces thick enough at rest in the bottle to keep the mixture fairly homogeneous, but the shear forces generated by shaking and pouring thins it, so it can be easily poured.
However, the isotonic beaker with no NaCl solution did not cause the plant to remain at the same weight, but instead allowed it to take in a bit more water than the hypotonic solution. 5. State your conclusions about the influence of solute concentration on the direction of osmosis. In conclusion, osmosis is highly sensitive to various solutions. Thus, any amount of solute within the water will affect the flow of osmosis and the mass of any plant.
Respiration is always happening. As stated in the background of the lab, "seeds are considered to be in a period of dormancy, where they metabolize stored energy at a very slow rate while the seed is still considered alive" (Hands On Labs). During germination, the developing plant embryo uses the stored food supply in the seed for cellular energy and growth. Thus, cellular respiration is taking place as the seeds grow. Without water the seeds cannot begin germinating thus the seeds in test tube N did not undergo photosynthesis(Hands On Labs).
This is because when catalase reacts with hydrogen peroxide, water and oxygen is formed (Mhamdi, Queval, Chaouch, Vanderauwera, Breusegem & Noctor 2010). Hence, as the concentration is not high, there will be less hydrogen peroxide for the catalase to catalyse, hence less oxygen will be produced and thus the leaf in the lowest hydrogen peroxide concentration solution will take the longest time to rise. Therefore, it was predicted that the leaf that would take the longest time to rise to the surface was the leaf in the 1% hydrogen peroxide concentration solution, and the leaf that would take the shortest time to rise would be the leaf in the 5% hydrogen peroxide
7. Extreme thirst Your body tries to shed extra fluids when the levels of your potassium drop to get your body back in balance. This will also make you very thirsty. In that effect, you could be weak and dehydrated. This healthy diet is one of the easiest and best ways to guarantee your potassium levels stay on par.
The use of fertilizers for growth and cultivation is keeping our stomach filled for now, but then if things keep on progressing the way they are, it won’t take long to see the times where there is lack of food, water, and health. In fact, nitrous oxide, which is a by product of nitrogen, is the third most significant greenhouse gas, after carbon dioxide and methane. Consequently, you can well imagine as to how harmful is the use of fertilizers for our environment and the ongoing use of fertilizers across the world
