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…

Lab Explained: Carbon Dioxide Production by Yeasts under Different Temperatures

Problem: Yeasts undergo aerobic cell respiration if there is sufficient oxygen and releases carbon dioxide as a waste product. Yeasts, like any other cells, have an optimum temperature at which they work most efficiently, including the process of cell respiration. This experiment aims to discover the relation between temperature and the carbon dioxide yield of…

Lab Techniques: Lab Answers

Abstract In this experiment, 1.41M sodium chloride aqueous solution was prepared and quantitatively transferred into a 250ml volumetric flask to further diluted to 0.141M. The transfer was inspected to be complete by attempting to precipitate with silver nitrate solution. Sand was successfully separated from 600ml water by vacuum filtration. The Pasteur pipet was calibrated to…
