Test Tube Degrees Celsius
1,267 wordsEnzyme Action: Testing Catalase Activity Enzymes are proteins that serve as catalysts and accelerate chemical reactions in living organisms. Enzymes accomplish this by lowering the energy of activation of the organism it is acting upon, however enzymes will only lower the energy of activation for specific organisms, reducing chaotic chemical reactions. The reaction is carried out in its entirety in the active site of the enzyme. The substrate (organism acted upon), binds itself into the active s...

Petri Dishes Test Tubes
899 wordsControlled Comparison: During class, our instructor set up the same lab that we were doing with 2 solutions, both of which were known acidic or basic. He placed 2 ml of the known acid into 2 different test tubes, and 2 ml of the known acid into 2 different petri dishes. Then using forceps, he tested blue litmus paper in one petri dish, and red litmus paper in another. The blue litmus paper, after being dipped into the solution, turned red in reaction to the acidic solution. While the red litmus ...

Petri Dishes Bacteria Cells
1,566 wordsIn this lab we observed the growth of bacteria in a conjugation and transformation experiment. We expected the mating plate of the conjunction to grow and the bacteria on the transformation plates to grow also. We also practiced using aseptic techniques to clean the lab benches and to keep the bacteria from being contaminated from outside bacteria. This lab will take a total of 2 days because of the observations that need to be made. The parts of this paper will explain the procedure and the obs...

1,371 wordsFermentation of glycine, water, sucrose, galactose, and glucose as induced by yeast. ABSTRACT This lab attempted to find the rate at which Carbon dioxide is produced when five different test solutions: glycine, sucrose, galactose, water, and glucose were separately mixed with a yeast solution to produce fermentation, a process cells undergo. Fermentation is a major way by which a living cell can obtain energy. By measuring the carbon dioxide released by the test solutions, it could be determined...

Brave New World Huxley Creates
587 wordsCommunity, Identity, and Stability. This motto seems to appropriately state the nature of the hatchery, as well as the nature of the world that Huxley creates. The center strives for community, identity, and stability as it literally creates the people of the world. The motto helps Huxley use setting in three different situations. When describing community, Huxley creates the Infant Nurseries and the Neo-Pavlovion Condition Rooms to show setting. Huxley uses the Decanting Room to symbolize the s...

Rate Of Reaction Bunsen Burner
2,301 wordsFor this investigation I am going to investigate the effect of the concentration of an enzyme, in this case Amylase, on the time taken for the enzyme to fully breakdown the substrate, which in this case is starch. The reason why these two enzymes have to be used is because each enzyme is designed specifically to break down only one substrate as each enzyme is made of a protein that causes it to be a specific shape, in this case the enzyme Amylase can only break down starch to dextrin. I am going...
