My third hypothesis is that the Member’s Mark will hold the most pennies when it is dry because Member’s Mark is two-ply and appears the thickest. PROCEDURE To prepare for both experiments I will acquire five brands of toilet paper, rubber bands, and a stopwatch from local stores. There is no control group for any of the experiments because I am comparing brands of toilet paper.
In this lab we were trying to figure out if Salt Creek and Barker Lake had the correct chemical balances to sustain catfish for the years coming. In order to find this out, we tested the water using a Hach Water Testing Kit. Inside were dissolved oxygen reagent powder pillows 1, 2 and 3 which we added and mixed into our sample water to prepare it for testing. Then we added droplets of Sodium Thiosulphate Solution into the prepared water too see how much dissolved oxygen parts per million were in the water. Our independent variable in this experiment was the 5 different testing sites that we went to for water samples.
a. Water boils to produce steam at 100 C (212 F) b. Water produces gas with sodium metal c. Water and oil separate when combined d. Water dissolves sugar 22. In the experiment, students put brine shrimp in water with different concentration of salt and counted the number. Which of the following changes to the experiment will increase confidence in the validity of the result? a. Count the number of dead brine shrimp instead of living brine shrimp b. Add more brine shrimp to the water with the highest salt concentration c.
The Honors Earth Science classes went to the Susquehanna River to solve a problem. The problem was not knowing if the is healthy. The classes want to know if the river is healthy, because the students live near the river, and it affects the classes everyday lives. To answer the problem, the classes did a series of tests, and made physical observations at various islands in the river. The students used test kits and other tools to test pH, temperature, phosphate, nitrate, turbidity, and dissolved oxygen.
In the experiment that tested whether leaf litter played a role in poison frog decline, there was ten plots that had no change in leaf litter. The data was fairly consistent until plot number seven appeared to have sixteen frogs in it. This was more than twice of the amount of frogs than any of the other plots with no change in leaf litter. Clearly, this is an outlier in the data and could have thrown off the average amount of strawberry poison dart frogs in leaf litters. If 1,000 frogs had been tested, this outlier would not have made such an impact on the mean.
Giving the audience a deeper understanding, Barry uses examples of what questions might arise in an experiment. Taken from the text, “A shovel can dig up dirt but cannot penetrate rock. Would a pick be best, or would dynamite be better—or would dynamite be too indiscriminately destructive?” (Barry). Throughout this passage Barry uses vivid images of a rock to display the effectiveness of questions a scientist might face.
However, it does not affect the measurements by a drastic amount and only by a tiny bit. Next, the experimenters will decipher how much water is left and subtract the original amount, which is 200 mL, by the milliliters of water left in the cup in order to calculate how much the paper towel really absorbed. Finally, record the data and repeat with the same paper towel brand until there are three trials and then change the paper towel brand, in this case, to Tork and repeat procedure for another three
Conclusion In conclusion my hypothesis was right and the wet bread grew the most (and only) mould. I can logically assume that the more moisture the bread has, the more mould it will grow. This was a fair test because each of the bread pieces had equal time to grow. The End In this experiment the conductor finds out that mould needs moisture thus needs to be included to conduct the experiment.
The hypothesis for this project was “If a soccer ball has less regulation air pressure, then the distance the ball travels when kicked will be less.” It was therefore rejected. The soccer ball with less air traveled farther than the soccer ball with more air. The average distance of the soccer ball with less air traveled 29 yards, and the soccer ball wind or that I was tired.with more air traveled at an average distance of 19 yards. could’ve been caused by the It Everything went according to plan except that the hypothesis was rejected.
Part A: Osmosis practical task Aim: To observe the effects of osmosis in rhubarb cells. Hypothesis: Water will be extracted out of the cells in the salt solution causing the cells to look different to the cells in the freshwater solution. Materials: Rhubarb Distilled water in a dropping bottle Salt solution in a dropping bottle Microscope, slides, and coverslips Forceps and razor blades or scalpel Paper Towel Method: Clean and dry a slide and coverslip.
Osmosis Lab Report Research Question: How does the change in the concentration of a sucrose solution affect the process of osmosis in a potato cell by measuring its mass? Background information: 1 Osmosis is the process by which a liquid passes through a semi-permeable membrane, moving from an area with a high concentration of water to a low concentration of water. There are various factors that affect osmosis such as: concentration, surface area and temperature. The concentration of solutions can affect the rate of osmosis, as there is more difference in the concentration of the solutions, which means osmosis, will take place quicker. Surface area could affect osmosis based on the ease by which molecules can get through the semi-permeable
Synopsis This experiment is the determination of Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) content in toothpaste with the use of back titration while demonstrating quantitative transfer of solids and liquids. A accurately weighed quantity of toothpaste was dissolved in excess volumes of HCl. This solution is then titrated with NaOH to find the volume of the excess HCl. The volume of HCl reacted, which is found by substracting the volume of given HCl with the volume of excess HCl reacted, can be further manipulated with mole fractions to find the mass of CaCO3 and thus the CaCO3 content in toothpastes.
