Lab Report: The impacts of salinity on modern agriculture

1.0 Background: A breakthrough scientific experiment conducted by ‘Carnegie Science’ found that soil salinity considerably affects the growth rate in plants.  The experiment found how plants create Abscisic Acid as a stress hormone when the endodermis is exposed to drought or saline environments. “The endodermis also acts as a guard, with Abscisic Acid, to prevent…

Vitro meat, Hydroponics and Xerophytic adaptations

As the population grows at an exponential rate, feeding the world’s people is becoming an increasingly important field of scientific concern. Projections predict that population will grow more than 2 billion by 2050. This rapid growth cannot be sustained in definitely and will be either at the expense of a lower lifestyle quality or dramatically…

Lab Report: Determine The Percentage Of Water In Hydrated Calcium nitrate

Introduction: Our group had done 3 data sets for the same experiment process, and had recorded 3 groups of data. The aim of experiments was to determine the percentage of water in hydrated Ca(NO3)2. We obtained the percentages through experimental procedures of reacting Ca(NO3)2 with Na2CO3 , filtrating and drying CaCO3. The chemical equation of…

While Aronson et al. state that “stereotypes are widely held evaluative generalizations about a group of people”, the definition from Augoustinos et al. is that “a stereotype is a schema, with all the properties of schemas”. As one can tell from these definitions, a stereotype can be seen as…

Lab Explained: Current in Simple DC Circuit

OBJECTIVES To understand how a potential difference (voltage) can cause an electric current flow through a conductor. To understand the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance in a DC circuit. To explain the physics behind the different current readings across the circuit. THEORY Direct Current (DC) is the constant flow of electric charge from high…
