    The field of genetics is an interesting concept to comprehend because it beholds answers to why some people are born with genetic birth defects, such as: down syndrome, heart defects, neural tube defects and blood disorders (Miranda Hitti, 2006). Not only that, but it accounts for why millions of people die because of these defects and it is mainly due to the cause of having a genetic mix up (Miranda Hitti, 2006). This is where the human genome project comes to the rescue. The human genome project has a goal of achieving an "accurate sequence of the 3 billion DNA base pairs that make up the human genome and to find all of the estimated 20,000 to 25,000 human genes." (GHR, 2015). With this information, our medical technology can advance significantly…

    the i nside. Franklin didn't receive enough acknowledgment, she was also suppose to get the Nobel prize. She was supposed to get it because she was the one that got the picture of how the structure actually looks like. 4) In the book "winner take all" in chapter 9 Watson writes about the acknowledgment in their project including about Franklin because a helped them. The DNA X-ray image that she took is now the principal evidence. Franklin couldn't get the Nobel prize because the prize doesn't…

    Part A: Background Information Acids and bases are very common in today’s society, and they can be found in most households. Acids can be found as by-products of air pollution, concrete cleaner, food flavouring and is produced by the muscle. Bases are found in most cleaning products as ammonia or sodium hydroxide, and they also treat indigestion. There are many ways that acids and bases can be defined by their chemical properties. The Bronsted-Lowry definition states that acids are proton…

    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…

    ACID-BASE PROPERTIES OF SODIUM CHLORIDE, SODIUM FORMATE AND AMMONIUM CHLORIDE INTRODUCTION The objective of this experiment is to examine the definitive characteristics of acids and bases by investigating the characteristics of strong versus weak acids; more specifically, why these differences are important in the process of titrations. In this experiment, there are two titrations performed and measured the pH of one salt solution. This experiment includes a strong acid and strong base…

    are essential in science and everyday life. They work to neutralize an acid in a reaction. Antacids are bases and the chemistry definitions of a base vary. A base is defined as a substance that produces OH- ions in solution in the Arrhenius definition. There is also the Bronsted Lowry definition and the Lewis definition. They are defined as the following respectively: a proton acceptor or H+ ion acceptor and an electron pair donor. These terms are used interchangeably to figure out if an element…

    donor. An equation exemplifying an acid dissolving in water is: HCl (g) H2O H+ (aq) + Cl- (aq) A base, based on the Bronsted-Lowry Theory, is defined as a proton (H+) acceptor. An equation exemplifying a base dissolving in water: NaOH (s) H2O Na+ (aq) + OH- (aq) Molarity, also known as the concentration, is represented as moles of the measured substance divided by the volume in dm3. It is a value of the amount of substance in a given volume. The amount of substance is measured…

    more extensive and intensive tests should be done to confirm the results. When looking at the Paste pH and Electrical Conductivity Tests, we are looking for an acidic environment and an environment with a high concentration of salt. Specifically, if our site sample has a pH of less than 4, then that indicates that the sample is acidic. If our site sample has an electrical conductivity greater than 2000 μSiemens per centimeters, then that indicates that the sample has a high level of soluble…
