Utilizing the method that the experimenters have come up with, the procedure isolates the variable being tested, which is the paper towel brand. By not changing other aspects of the procedure, other factors have a lower chance of affecting the accurate results of the answer to the main question. Additionally, the method is a quick and simple experiment, causing no use of excessive time than the provided duration. Within the first minutes of the experiment, the experimenters and the advisor realized that the method did not really provide accurate results due to merely estimating the numbers without the use of a graduated cylinder. Changing that aspect of the procedure by using a graduated cylinder to measure the amounts of water instead helped …show more content…
The control group contains 200mL of water, 28.6cm by 17.8cm size of paper towel, the amount of folds to the paper towel, same cup used to put paper towel in, ten seconds to soak paper towel in water, ten seconds to take paper towel out and let it get drip off excess water, and a graduated cylinder used to measure amount of water. On the other hand, the experimental group includes all the same components of the control group, but it adds the factor of changing the paper towel brand. The controlled variable has all the same aspects as the control group and the manipulated variable is the change in paper towel brand. After the procedure finishes, the responding variable represents the amount of water the paper towel absorbs, which is measured using the graduated cylinder. To start off the procedure, the experimenters must first grab the Kirkland paper towel and rip off a 28.6cm by 17.8cm section, which is its given measurements for each piece of paper towel. Second, the experimenters has to fill up a measuring cup until the water reaches 200 mL. Third, the experimenters will fold the paper towel in half three …show more content…
Fifth, once the paper towel is entirely in the water, count ten seconds and then take it out. After taking it out, put the wet paper towel over the cup and wait ten seconds in order to get rid of excess water. By putting it over the cup, the excess water falls into it, so that the result of how much water the paper towel absorbs remains accurate. The sixth step is to put the wet paper towel aside and take the cup and pour the leftover water into a graduated cylinder. During the pouring process, the water might cling to the sides of the graduated cylinder, decreasing the initial value. 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
I measure one cup of tap water in a two-cup measuring cup. I will then use a mixer to move the water at medium speed (three). The mixer will not touch the bottom and will be steadied by placing it on a platform. I will then drop a square of toilet paper in the moving water while starting a stopwatch. I will time it until it breaks apart into small pieces.
In almost every experiment, there’s an independent and dependent variable, a constant, and a control group. The independent variable in this lab was the coins. The dependent variable was the density. The constant was the amount of water. In this lab, there was no control group .
Our first method was to weigh the glass by putting it in a graduated cylinder of water and placing the glass inside and to observe the lever to with the water rose after first recording the original state of the water. The second test we preformed was to measure the glass and use it’s dimensions to determine the density. This procedure taught me how problem solve effectively and scientifically using information I previously learned in both chemistry and mathematics and applying it to this problem. This also gave me the ability to test the effectiveness of my experiment and decide which one was more proficient at producing an accurate test of the density of the glass. We continuously referred back to the original request of the experiment, making sure our goals aligned with the problem at hand, determining
In this particular experiment the constant condition, the factor that was never changed, was the room temperature water. The independent variable, the variable the student affected, was how much water was placed into the beakers. The dependent variable, a variable that was affected by the independent variable, was the time it took for the tablet to fully dissolve. The control group, which did not receive treatment from the students, was the 50 ml of water as a result of being the medium between the three measurements of water. Finally, the experimental group, the subject that was exposed to the variable during the experiment, was the 25 ml and 75 ml of
Leah Romero 10/30/2017 Conclusion Lab 3 Chem 102L In lab 3, fundamentals of chromatography, the purpose was to examine how components of mixtures can be separated by taking advantage of different in physical properties. A huge process in this lab was paper chromatography, which was used to isolate food dyes that are found in different drink mixes. The different chromatograms of FD&C dyes were compared to identify which dyes are present in each of the mixes.
The purpose of this lab was to find out what the strongest tissue of the three brands my group tested. My group 's hypothesis w.as, if different amounts of weight is put on three different brands of tissues, then the Kleenex will stay the strongest, because this brand is more advertised. The experiment concluded that Up & Up was the strongest at 28 pennies, Kleenex was the second strongest at 9 1/2 pennies, while Darnix came in last place at 5 pennies.
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.
Unknown Lab Report Unknown # 25 By: Jenna Riordan March 19, 2018 Bio 2843 1. Introduction Microbiology is the study of microorganisms found in all different environments throughout Earth, from the hot thermal vents at the bottom of the ocean to the ice at the top of a mountain.
Our original question was what is the effect of different types of water on an Alka Seltzer tablet? What we were measuring was which type of water will make the tablet dissolve the quickest. Our hypothesis was the salt water would dissolve it the fastest, then the pond the second, and tap would take the longest. The results ended up being that the tap water would dissolve the tablet the fastest, then the pond water, and the the salt last. Our three controls are the amount of salt, the amount of water, and the size of the tablet.
In this lab we used two processes called Diffusion and Osmosis. Diffusion is the movement of molecules from areas of high concentration to areas of low concentration. Diffusion is a process that requires no energy and involves smaller non-polar molecules. In Figure 1 you can see the molecules spreading throughout the glass from the area of high concentration, so that the areas with low concentration are filled evenly as well. The other process was osmosis.
A. Participants 1. Describe the participants a fully as possible (not the technique, but who participated). This study included 60 participants as users of a men’s lavatory at a Midwestern United States University. All the participants were in the bathroom alone during urination.
Record the readings for the time taken, for the particular height (the paper cup was dropped from). Repeat this process (using the same equipment), by varying the height of paper cup from the ground (with a specific difference in height, in each experiment). The independent variable, which is the height the empty muffin paper cup is dropped from, will start at 1 metre and the increase in height will be 0.5 m in each experiment. The use of the clamp stand is effective in this experiment because it will always control or keep constant, the height in which the paper cup is dropped from, unlike somebody dropping the paper cup using his/her hands.
