Would different beans, other then mug bean make the bean beetles produce less offspring. In this group project we conducted a hypothesis that argues, If using different beans for reproduction other then the mug bean, then they will produce less offspring. the dependent vearable is number of offspring and the independent veraible is the different type of beans. when conducting this experiements we used method of division, replication, and messureing.
After finding the Rf values of the four known compounds, solvent 1 (99.5% ethyl acetate/0.5% acetic acid) was chosen, due to the wide range of results, for the remaining experiments. Ibuprofen, our known tablet, gave a similar Rf value to our previous results for Ibuprofen. For Anadin extra, there were three compounds identified as Caffeine, Paracetamol and Aspirin as the Rf values of the drug were close to the values of these three compounds in the first part of the practical. For both of these known drugs, the Rf values acquired were close to my predictions before the experiment. For the unknown powder, we obtained Rf values of 0.52 and 0.76 so we believe that the unknown powder contains Aspirin and Ibuprofen.
The purpose of this lab was to use chemical and physical tests to identify indicators of disease in synthetic urine samples. This lab tested samples for protein levels, glucose levels, and pH levels. In a normally functioning individual, proteins cannot pass through the glomerulus; therefore proteins should not be found in urine. However, in the nephrons of individuals with Bright’s Disease, the glomerulus no longer stops all proteins from entering the urine (Giuseppe et al., 2002, pp. 357–358). Bright’s Disease is characterized by a change in the permeability of the glomerulus, which allows proteins to pass through and since the nephron has no way of reabsorbing proteins they are passed into the urine (Giuseppe et al., 2002,
The dictionary defines a crucible as a place or occasion of severe tests or trials. During the late seventeenth century, many places around the world began to have an increased fear of the supernatural. Witch trials sparked by these fears brought great pressure upon all involved. In Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, the people of Salem were placed under a lot of pressure as the witch trials were occurring. With pressure mounting, three men from the story each struggled in a different manner; Parris becoming fearful and cowardly, Hale undergoing a change in character, and Proctor taking a stand for what he believed to be right.
Each group was assigned a different percent of sucrose solution out of the four variables; 0% , 5%, 10%, and 15%. After we filled the beaker we then got two potato cores. Once we had the cores we cut the skin off the ends. Following this we then cut the two potato cores into four 2.00 cm potato cores. After they were cut into 2.00 cm each we found the mass. We zeroed out the scale and weighed all four potato cores at once and recorded the mass. We then put those potato cores into the beaker of 75 mL of solution. With the potato cores in the beaker we then put a watch glass over the top of the beaker to minimize the amount of solution that evaporates. We let the potato cores sit in the solution overnight. The next day we then emptied the beaker of the solution by carefully draining the solution, while not letting the potato cores fall out. We then took the potato cores out of the empty beaker and dabbed them lightly with paper towel to get any excess solution off. We did this quickly and following it we then took the mass of all four potato cores again and recorded
1. 150 ml of boiled water was poured into each of the three beakers labeled A, B, C.
Then more roasting occurred when the crucible was placed into a ceramic triangle for the Bunsen burner to continue its burning for an additional 90 minutes. Once the burning was officially over, the crucible was placed onto a ceramic tile to cool off. Next the charcoal and copper material were poured onto a paper towel and were separated from carefully distinguishing them one from the other. Then comparisons were down through analysis of the copper (II) oxide smelted. Then the mass of the copper metal and the percentage of Cu were obtained and compared throughout different groups and a mean and standard deviation was calculated for the
Then an estimated (by trial and error) 1-3 grams of hydrated copper sulfate was added to a crucible with the lid on top. The total mass of the hydrated copper sulfate was recorded by subtracting the total mass of the crucible, lid, and sample from the mass of the crucible and lid (described in table 1.3). By attaching the wire triangle to the ring, the crucible was able to sit securely while having the bunsen burner underneath. Lighting the burner once again, each substance was heated for several minutes until estimated that the compound had changed color. Once a prevalent color change had been observed at approximately 4 minutes (blue green color) the crucible was set on the counter using the tongs to cool for approximately 5 minutes. The appearance after this period resulted in another color change back to white. The crucible, lid, and hydrated copper sulfate was weighed again to calculate the mass of water lost by dehydration (described in table 1.3). This was done by subtracting the final mass by the initial mass of the crucible, lid, and compound. The mass of the crucible would remain unchanged while the mass of the compound would be altered. This trial was repeated 3 times and 1 extra set of data was taken from 2 separate groups to include
Materials: The materials that I will be utilizing during these experimentations are three to four ice cubes, one cup for measuring, six unblemished cups, one stopwatch, one hot water source, three tablets of Alka-Seltzer, one thermometer that measures from negative
- A hydrate is a salt that contains water as a part of its crystal structure. The
The temperature probe was then quickly cooled to room temperature. When this was achieved, the hot water was immediately transferred into the calorimeter. This method of keeping the temperature probe cooled before measuring a new temperature was repeated throughout the entire experiment. Temperature data was collected for 180 s while swirling the temperature inside the calorimeter. The calorimeter still contained the warm water. After the water temperature began to stabilize, the highest constant temperature was recorded. This data was used to calculate the calorimeter constant. This enter procedure was repeated to calculate another calorimeter constant in order to find the average of both answers. After that value was calculated, a 600 mL beaker was filled with 300 mL of water and heated till it started boiling. An unknown metal located on the instructor's bench was obtained and the mass was calculated. For two minutes, the metal was suspended in the boiling water. During the two minutes, a Styrofoam cup was filled with 100 mL of room temperature water. The initial temperature of the metal was equal to the temperature of the boiling water. In order to probably calculate the temperature of the metal, the steps were repeated and another temperature was
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 objective of the experiment was to try to figure out what the mystery powder was. I used a bunsen burner, four different types of liquids. We were given eight powders and one of these powders were our mystery powder. And each powder reacted different to the fire and the liquid. We had to go back into our notes and see what matched to what.
Weight a clean, dry, porcelain evaporating dish on the electric balance and record this mass on an appropriate data table. If the crucible needs to be washed before use, then heat the crucible in the Bunsen burner flame for a few minutes and remove any residual water. Then allow it to cool before continuing.
In order to perform this experiment, the students will need a distillation set-up with a connector receiver, an iron ring and stand, a Bunsen burner, a wire gauze, a 250mL round bottom flask, a graduated cylinder, a thermometer, one or two boiling chips, an alcoholic beverage, masking tape, an ice bath, a stirring rod, and, optionally, food coloring. It is imporatnt to avoid playing with the apparatus and equipment so as to avoid breakage and injuries, especially since fire is being dealt with in this experiment.
