Slime Lab Report

Slime is made by mixing together borax, glue, and water. Depending on the amount of borax added to the mixture will determine the density of the slime. For our experiment in class the independent variable was the borax. The dependent variable was slime. The control group was glue. It was important to keep the amount of glue, borax, and water constant throughout the experiment. In an experiment conducted in class it was hypothesized that the more borax added the denser the slime will be. Slime was introduced by Mattel in the winter of 1976. It was made from guar gum and borax. It was a green goo that had a semi-solid form. Mattel then introduced other products using the slime such as Hordak’s Horde Slime Pit. This play set used slime …show more content…
We used borax soap, water, glue, food coloring, cups, spoons, and stirring rods to conduct our experiment. First, we mixed borax and water until the borax was dissolved. In a separate beaker we mixed glue and water with a popsicle stick. The water and glue mixture were used as our control group. We then stretched our slime as far as possible and recorded it in our data table. After this, we added one drop of borax solution and stretched it again. We kept doing this until we had a slime that stretched perfectly. When we made the perfect slime we stretched it as far as we could three times and recorded each measurement. Then we calculated the average stretch of that batch of slime. Then we cleaned out our beaker with the slime. We recorded the number of borax solution drops for experiment C as double the borax solution for experiment B. We then added the same amount of glue and water in the beaker, and mixed it with a popsicle stick. We stretched this slime three times and recorded each measurement in our data table under experiment C. Finally, we found the average for this trial and recorded …show more content…
Experiment A’s average stretch was zero centimeters. For experiment B, we found the perfect slime had twenty-five drops of borax solution. Our first trial was fifty-two centimeters, second was fifty, and third was forty-eight. Experiment B’s average stretch was fifty centimeters. For experiment C we used forty drops of borax solution. Our first trial was twenty-five centimeters, second was thirty-six centimeters, and our third was twenty-five centimeters again. Experiment C’s average stretch was twenty-eight

    We did the above process 3 times until we got 3 dillutions (1, 1/10 and 1/100) 5. Then we placed 1 ml of these delutions into the agar plate, as instructed we waited and let the water sink in the agar 6. Finally we moved a piece of paper with Ciproxin (which is an antibiotic for the treatment of bacterial infections) antibiotic in the middle of the first dilution…

    DNA purification: To get pure DNA to use, a silica membrane was used to collect the long DNA strands. We started by adding 5 volumes of PB buffer to 1 volume of each PCR reaction. We put column and the silica wafers into tubs and pipetted the DNA samples onto the wafers. We centrifuged the tubes for a minute and disposed of the waste. After that we pipetted 0.75 ml of buffer PE to the samples and spun it for another minute then disposed of the waste.…

    To make the desired buffer, another 100 ml beaker was used to prepare a solution buffer of 50 ml. Following the prelab calculations once again and using the weighting balance, the amount of Tris and SDS needed was weighted. The Tris used were 3.206g and SDS 0.205g. The solids were added to the beaker and to this 50 ml of water. The beaker was stir on the stirring plate until the solution dissolved completely.…

    A pipet was then placed in a beaker with DI water and due to capillary action a small amount was drawn in and then the pipette was inverted. The water droplet slowly moved to the pointed end of the pipet and placed securely on the syringe with the free tubing. The respirometer was placed on test tube rack. The water droplet was then recorded for its starting point. This was then done two other times for the “with mustard” beaker and then done three times for the “with chili powder” beaker and “with sodium chloride” beaker.…

We formed the acid rain solution by mixing vinegar and tap water until we achieve the desired pH of three. After soaking the petri dishes, one with tap water one with acid rain solution, we took our two groups of ten radish seeds and placed one group in each petri dish. We then placed the petri dishes under the UV lights, and let them sit for one…

    After mixing the agarose and bromide, we constructed the chamber and proceeded to carefully pour the agarose into the chamber. After pouring the agarose, we proceeded to add 1X TBE buffer to the chamber. To load and run Gel 1, we added 6µl of 10X Blue Juice to our PV92 tube. We then obtained a tube of DNA size markers which contained known DNA fragments of 766, 500, 300, 150, and 50 base pairs which were added to Well 2 and measured at 10µl (Leicht and McAllister, 2016) . We then proceeded to fill wells 3-5 with 20µl of our PV92 samples, each teammate getting their own well.…
