  • Argumentative Essay On The Drinking Age

    1387 Words  | 6 Pages

    Over the years, the legal drinking age in the United States has been heavily debated. Some argue that the legal age to drink should be 18 or 19 because people at that age are recognized as adults; others argue that the drinking age should be 21 because people who are able to drink should be more mature and have their lives better planned out. Although people are legally adults at 18, they are not yet mature adults; in fact, according to NRP, “emerging science about brain development suggests that

  • NFL Player's Wage Differences

    1611 Words  | 7 Pages

    is the military wage vs. an NFL player’s wage. Many people are frustrated with the difference and believe either NFL players should make less or military personnel should make more. Through statistics and my own experiences I can say that as far as your wage goes you would make more money in your lifetime working for the military than you would in the NFL. This of course goes for the average NFL player. This is in no way made to disrespect or dishonor anyone who has worked in the military. This is

    It is type of condensation reaction, which involve the condensation of acidic anhydride and aldehyde in the presence of weak base (i.e. Sodium and potassium salt of the acid or trimethylamine) to give unsaturated carboxylic acid.(Equation-1)[1].In 1968 Perkin described the very first example of such type condensation reaction, involve the synthesis of coumarin by condensing the sodium or potassium salt of salicylaldehyde with acetic anhydride (Equation-2)[2].Generally such type of reaction is only

  • Acid Base Titration Lab Report

    746 Words  | 3 Pages

    Introduction: The acid-base titration experiment is the use of a titrant, an analyte, and an indicator. Titration is the slow addition of one solution of a known concentration (called a titrant) to a known volume of another solution of unknown concentration until the reaction reaches neutralization, which is often indicated by a color change.1 The titrate is what is later released into a beaker or flask that is filled with the analyte and indicator. The color change happens because of the indicator

  • Buffer Lab Report

    1344 Words  | 6 Pages

    Introduction Buffer is a solution that resists a change in pH when bases or acid are added. Solutions that are acidic contain high concentrations of hydrogen ions (H+) and have pH values less than seven. Buffer usually consist of a weak acid, and its conjugate base or a weak base and its conjugate acid. The function of buffer is to resist the changes in hydrogen ion concentration as a result of internal and environmental factor. This buffer experiment is important so that we relies the important

  • Environmental Causes Of Dental Erosion

    1296 Words  | 6 Pages

    There is a lack of education and public information based around dental erosion and furthermore, there is generally widespread ignorance of the deleterious consequences of dental erosion; this is distinctly the issue with erosion due to fruit juices as they’re seen to be healthy. [1][2] Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body and it helps us with things such as chewing and biting. Even though enamel is an extremely solid substance, it can still break, and unlike bone, it cannot repair

  • Equivalence Point In An Acid-Base Titration

    845 Words  | 4 Pages

    Discussion: End point in this acid-base titration experiment refers to the point where the chemical reaction has reached its conclusion and no additional titrant should be added. The end point of this experiment can be obtained when the indicator used changes colour. For example colourless to light pink when phenolphthalein is used and red to orange and subsequently yellow when methyl orange is used. Equivalence point, also known as stoichiometric point in an acid-base titration refers to the point where

    This is done so that the bodies natural buffer system can turn the carbonic acid into its conjugate base, bicarbonate, which will lower the pH as well if needed. The sodium hydroxide would have reacted with the carbonic acid to produce sodium bicarbonate and water making the solution slightly basic. It had been seen that this did not occur since the solution was orange, and when the one drop of base was added, then the solution turned yellow meaning that the sodium hydroxide and carbonic acid had

  • Catalase Experiment

    1443 Words  | 6 Pages

    The aim of the investigation was to determine the effect of pH on the rate at which catalase decomposes hydrogen peroxide and consequently answer the researchable question “How does pH influence cells and consequently an organism”. The hypothesis, “As the pH deviates from 7 the initial rate of oxygen production will decrease” is supported by the results. The trend displayed in Figure 3 is, as the pH deviates from 7 the initial rate of reaction decreases. Figure 3 shows that the rate of reaction (%O2/s)
