  • The Notorious Jumping Frog Analysis

    From reading The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, I would add a piece of technology that would help Jim Smiley win more bets with his frog. I would add a device that would be capable of measuring jumping height, force from takeoff, and the landing force. This way Mr. Smiley could go out and gather frogs and test them until he singled out the best frog for him to use in his bets. Mr. Smiley taught the frog that he caught in the story on how to jump higher, but if someone else were to have a more athletic frog than Mr. Smiley he could’ve easily been beaten because Smiley didn’t measure his frogs height from jumping and didn’t really know for a fact that he was the highest jumping frog in Calaveras County. What my device would consist of would be a laser beam, a pressure measurement plate, and a magnet recipient bar. The device would be connected to a sort of graphing machine that would log the force of the take off and landing, it would also log the height at which the laser beam was shot into the magnet recipient. The laser beam would shoot where the frogs momentum shifted from up to down, the laser beam would then instantly shoot into the magnet…

  • Stereotypes In Divergent Movie

    Most movies present characters with supernatural abilities that humans would never be able to do (have), yet in the movie Divergent, the character Tris is surprisingly relatable to the viewers. In this seemingly Utopian society, all members must pick one of only five different factions, to which they must remain in for the rest of their life. The scene I chose shows Tris going through the Dauntless ritual after she chose them as her faction. She ends up climbing structures, getting onto a full…

  • Equivalence Point Lab Report

    solution should be a faint pink color. If the color is too dark of a pink that means that it is overly titrated. The independent variable is the amount of base being added to the solution. The dependant variable is the indicator. The constant variable is the acid which is in the flask. When the solid acid dissolves to form ions, 1 mole of H+ ions are produced for every mole of acid being used. Molarity is used to calculate moles per liter of solution. The most dangerous part of this lab is…

  • Phenolphthalein Chemistry Lab Report

    The reaction of phenolphthalein reacting with sodium hydroxide consists of C20H14O4+ NaOH → NaKC8H4O4 (aq)+ H2O(l) Phenolphthalein is used as an indicator in this reaction because it changes color when a solution reaches a pH of around eight, or in other words the endpoint of a solution. It also allows us to see a physical change, thus resulting in a more accurate measure of how much was titrated. Citric acid is a weak acid, making it best titrated by using a strong base, such as sodium…

  • Common Carp Fish Case Study

    3.2. Chemical quality parameters and pH value:- 3.2.1. Chemical quality properties, pH values and total plate count (TPC):- Total volatile basic -nitrogen (TVB-N), the peroxide value (PV), pH and total plate count (TPC) are good index to determine the freshness and quality of fishes and their products. Data presented in Table (4) show the values of TVB-N, PV,…

  • Freezing Salt Water Hypothesis

    Freezing salt-water experiment Contents: Contents, introduction and literature review on page 1. Aim, hypothesis, variables, risk assessment, materials and method on page 2. Results on page 3. Discussion and conclusion on page 4. Introduction: I have decided to do my SRP on salt water freezing because our planet is 71% water and about 96.5% of it is in the ocean which it is salt water so this is why I was interested in seeing how much salt, depresses the water from freezing. Literature…

  • Zinc Elements Lab

    Zinc was used as a known based on the abundance of the element. Also, zinc acts as an example for how to observe acid and base reactions. When at first submerging zinc in the H2SO4 it seemed as if the zinc was nonreactive; however, after some time bubbles started to form a layer on the zinc indicating that a chemical reaction was occurring. The long wait time associated with an observable reaction can be seen as a limitation of zinc. If the reaction was not left to sit then it might be recorded…

  • Analysis Of Ka And Pkb

    DETERMINATION OF pKa AND pKb USING ACID-BASE TITRATIONS Introduction Acid-base titrations can be used to determine pKa of a weak acid and pKb of a base. A weak acid and a weak base incompletely dissociate in water. For this reason, the concentration of hydrogen ions (H+) and hydroxide ions (OH-) depend on equilibrium coefficients of acid (Ka) and base (Kb). Equation 1 shows the chemical dissociation equation of a weak acid. Furthermore, Equation 2 describes the equilibrium constant of a weak…

  • Argumentative Essay On Alkaline Water

    Have you ever heard about alkaline water? Do you really know what it is? When it comes to alkaline water, you should know this water is slightly basic. It has basic minerals, including magnesium, calcium and bicarbonate. All these compounds will bind to hydrogen ions in solution, making the water more basic. Moreover, this type of water refers to its pH level, which is a number that measures how alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0-14. For example, if something will have a pH level of 1, it…
