    • 3 Pages

    According to my results the unknown substance that had left Mr.Price in a very critical condition is Sodium bicarbonate commonly termed as baking soda. Who committed the crime? (1 T/I) None of the restaurant staff had pleaded to using Sodium bicarbonate, ergo none of the staff could have been guilty of leaving Mr.Price in a critical condition. Explain how you used the properties from your observation table to make conclusions about the identification of the substances. Use specific information from your lab to support your conclusions. (4 T/I) Firstly, it can be see in the chart that Sodium bicarbonate and the unknown substance ha every similar and almost the same physical properties…

    According to Aoi and Marunaka (2014), regulation of body fluid pH is one of the most important physiological functions of homeostasis, because activity of most chemical reactions via enzyme proteins is dependent on fluid pH. After the homeostasis has maintain, the lungs and the kidneys have to work together to keep the blood system in the normal range to help maintain the blood by affecting the components of the ammonia. The function of bicarbonate buffer is important because, the bicarbonate…

    However, the most important buffer for maintaining acid–base balance in the blood is the carbonic acid–bicarbonate buffer. The normal pH of all tissues and fluids of the body, excluding.the stomach, is slightly alkaline, however, the most critical pH is that of the pH of blood. All other fluids will fluctuate.to keep the blood a strict pH between 7.35 and…

    Alka-Seltzer pill has completely dissolved, the solution becomes a homogeneous mixture. A homogeneous mixture is used to describe a mixture with a composition that remains consistent and has a single phase throughout the mixture. A homogeneous mixture is made up of only one uniform. The ingredients of an Alka-Seltzer pill consist of 324mg of aspirin, 1625mg of sodium hydrogen carbonate, 965mg of citric acid anhydrous, dimeticone, calcium silicate, docusate sodium, sodium benzoate sodium…

    to humans than anything else. It is important to take care of the body from any harm. One thing that the body is capable of is maintaining pH levels and buffers. A pH is the power of hydrogen and buffers prevent extreme shifts in pH. The blood has a specific type of buffer that is maintained at pH level of 7.4. If the buffers shifts and levels of pH go to 7 or 7.8, it can be deadly. The blood buffer contains carbonic acid which dissociates into bicarbonate acid and hydrogen ions. This equation…

    alkalosis that is hyperventilation. There are two main common causes also, these include panic attacks and anxiety. Other possible causes are heart attack, pain, drug use, asthma, COPD, infection, pulmonary embolism, and pregnancy. Some symptoms that occur with someone who has this condition are dizziness, bloating, light-headedness, numbness, muscle spasms, confusion, dry mouth, tingling in arms, heart palpitations, and feeling short of breath. Compensatory Mechanisms. In respiratory…

    Bicarbte Buffer System

    • 1280 Words
    • 6 Pages

    The system consists of constant changes between water (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2) to form carbonic acid (H2CO3) and, if needed, it will break the weak acid and from bicarbonate (HCO3-) and very little hydrogen ions (H+). This equilibrium allows for the equation to vary back and forth maintaining a constant pH value within the species. For instance, when hydrogen is missing, more water and carbon dioxide will form carbonic acid and will therefore dissociate replacing the missing hydrogen ions…

    in venous blood." 1. pH: (7.35-7.45) measurement of acidity or alkalinity based on H+ ions present in the blood. 2. pO2: (80-100 mm hg) the partial pressure of oxygen that is dissolved in the arterial blood 3. HCO3: (21-28 mEq/L) this is the calculated value of the amount of bicarbonate in the blood stream. This is not a blood gas but "the anion of carbonic…

    ions from sediment layers. In turn, the carbonate ions would reduce the concentration of protons in the water by producing more bicarbonate, making the solution less acidic. Unfortunately, intense ocean acidification over a relatively short time period has overstimulated the carbonate ions and will require time for protons to be readily absorbed. This process will also take a long time because the acidic water is close to the surface while the sediment layers (the source of carbonate ions) are…

    Acid-Base Case study 1 The acid base balance of the body is mainly regulated by respiratory and renal system together with the body ‘buffer system. For the body to function normally, the hydrogen ion (H+) needs to be concentrated within a narrow range, represented as pH, which determines the acidity and alkalinity of a solution. Changes in the bicarbonate (HCO3) concentration causes metabolic acidosis or metabolic alkalosis while changes in the rate of alveolar ventilation and carbon dioxide…
