Introduction The purpose of this lab was to test one type of grass and four different types of soil in order to figure out which grass will grow tallest in 21 days. The hypothesis states that The Perennial Rye Grass will grow taller in the Miracle-Gro Organic Potting Mix than the other three grasses when given water over 21 days. The independent variable is the soil, the dependent variable is growth measured in height, and the control variables are as follows: 21 days of data collection, 1.5 mL of water a day, sunlight from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in greenhouse, temperature is about 70o F, 200ml of soil in each planter, five drainage holes made with a probe, .25 grams of seed, 1 cm into the soil, watered with 1.5ml twice a day and measured after the
In this experiment, scientists, Emily Yau and Mona Howell, conducted an experiment that tested how acidity and radiation affects germination of radish seeds. We had hypothesized the seeds that microwave for 5, 10, and some of the 15 second seeds will grow. The radish seeds in the 1 and 2 teaspoons will sprout. We should accept our hypothesis because in the most part, it was correct. Although most of our data supports our hypothesis, some of our data contradicts our hypothesis.
If the experiment was completed again, more higher concentrations could be applied to the seeds to see if the data is further supported. Either way the more trials the better and more accurate results, this applies to any experiment. Practical applications of the principles of this investigation may be using the correct concentration for a specific plant or seed. This lab shows that it is necessary to follow the directions and specifications when using the fertilizer miracle
How would you feel if you had to be worrying about the Nazi´s taking you away for being Jewish? Or living in a Nazi controlled area? In the book Black Radishes by Susan Lynn Meyer, Gustave lived in Paris with his parents and hung out with his cousins/friends Marcel and Jean-Paul everyday until the Nazis came and Gustave and his parents moved to the unoccupied zone where he worries about his family still in the occupied zone. At the end, his family finally moves to the United States fleeing from Nazi-controlled Paris. The author uses description, tone, and revealing actions to demonstrate the goal of setting up the problem.
• N. Dirilgen, 1994, Cobalt-copper and Cobalt-zinc effects on duckweed growth and metal accumulation. Different concentrations of Cobalt2+, Zinc2+ and Copper2+ as well as Co2+Cu2+ and Co2+Zn2+ were added to nutrients given to a species of duckweed, Lemna minor L. the effects of these metals on the growth of the duckweed was recorded. A change in growth was not very noticeable until the concentration of Cobalt (Co) and Copper (Cu) reached 2.00 ppm (parts per million), where the growth of the duckweed was inhibited. It was also discovered that Cu and Co work together to inhibit growth when they are at a certain concentration, and at other concentrations, the one would neutralise the other, creating less of an effect on the growth of the duckweed. The conclusion the I took from this study is that as the
The President’s Choice Caramelized Vidalia Onion Hummus represents a healthy food choice, since it does not contain any trans-fat and its fat percentage comes from healthy fats. Indeed, ingredients such as natural oils and chickpeas provide healthy fats to the consumer. Fat is to represent approximately 25% of our food intake, so hummus is a healthy choice to balance the three macronutrients. Also, the 2 g of protein per 70 g of hummus results in a 11% calories from protein. Protein is essential to maintain the body’s muscles and structure, so hummus is a great source of protein. Moreover, carbohydrates provide energy to our body, which permits us t perform our daily activities. In short, the proportions regarding macronutrients are appropriate
In addition, the average height of the seed, with pure water, after 8 days, was 8.9 centimeters whereas the average height of the seeds with 4% of “Miracle Gro” was 0.3 centimeters. The difference there is a whopping 8.6 centimeters. Not only that, but the seeds have a coating and when it separates from the seed that signals that the seed is beginning to germinate. After the 8 days, the seeds with only water were all separated from their covering, while the 4% solution only had 2 beginning to peel. Finally, we concluded that because of osmosis, the seeds with more “Miracle Gro” were bound to grow the least.
Plants have been used as botanical medications for years before history was even recorded. A prime example is the Chinese Rhubarb, which was also known as Rheum officinale. Rhubarb is one of the most widely used herbs in Chinese medicine. The Chinese rhubarb originated and is native to the mountains and plateaus of China and Tibet. The rhubarb is a hardy species which can be found as weeds in people’s gardens and on the side of the road as well. This rhubarb is not the same as the one we’re familiar with that are found in some of our diets. The one that people eat is actually a hybrid that was developed in the 19th century that has no medicinal value in its roots. 3
Chickpeas are rich in nutrients, vitamins and minerals. A serving of 100g cooked chickpeas salt contains 27.42 g carbohydrates, which helps to generate energy; 7.6 g fiber for a healthy heart and a healthy digestive system; 2.59 g fat; and 8.86 g protein. Chickpeas also contain vitamin A, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin E and vitamin K. The minerals contained in the grains are calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and
Introduction Plants are a major necessity in the balance of nature, people’s lives, and our terrain. We may not realize it, but plants are the ultimate source of food for almost 95% of the world population so says the National Group of Food. It’s a fact that over 7,000 species of plants are being consumed today. Plants are one of the reasons that we get clean water; as they help regulate the water cycle.
Skip Cooking Certain Foods for Health Benefits Who eats their red beets raw, if not you may want to stop cooking them and start eating them raw. We have talked about eating as close to the earth as possible in previous articles. This simply means you pull it from the ground or pick it from a plant in the ground and consume in as close to its natural state as possible. 1.)
Data Presentation: Graph 1: Color vs Mass The solutions in the colors red, orange, and blue had final weights greater than their initial weights. The potato cores gained mass. The yellow, green, and purple sucrose solutions had initial weights was greater than their final weights. The potato cores loss mass.
