    Alkalinity Lab

    • 846 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Alkalinity is a measure of the ability of a water to resist changes in pH. Alkalinity in water is due to the presence of weak acid systems that consume by hydrogen ion produced by other reactions, allowing chemical or biological activities to take place within a water without changing the pH (1). In this way the alkalinity protects aquatic life. The measured value may vary considerably with the end-point pH used. Alkalinity is a measure of an aggregate property of water and can be interpreted…

    Normal pH within the blood can range between 7.35 and 7.45 arterial and venous is 7.32 thru 7.42. Normal HCO3 for arterial is 22 thru 26 mEq/liter and venous is 19 to 25 mEq/liter with PCO2 normal for arterial 35 thru 45 mm Hg and venous 38 thru 52 mm Hg. Normal PO2 is 80 to 100mm Hg for arterial and venous is 28 thru 48 mm Hg. Acidosis can affect the central nervous system within the body and left untreated can lead to death. Alkalosis affects the central nervous system which can cause muscle…

    Metabolic Alkalosis

    • 4 Pages

    Keeping our body’s pH balance in check is always important this because proper body function can happen and we remain healthy. If your blood pH were to drop below 7.35 you would develop a condition called acidosis. Then depending on the cause of this acidosis whether it be the kidneys or the lungs would determine the kind of acidosis. If it is the kidneys causing the acidosis we would call it a metabolic acidosis, where is if it were the lungs it would be called a respiratory acidosis. Know if…

    when mixed with water. Occasionally, active ingredient itself could act as the acid or alkali metal compound necessary for effervescent reaction. Effervescent tablets are uncoated tablets that generally contain acid substances and carbonates or bicarbonates and which react rapidly in the presence of water by releasing carbon dioxide. Effervescent tablets are designed to produce a…

    The process can take place in three parts. • Filtration – This process happens in the entire nephron system. When blood goes through and into the capillary at the beginning of the nephron, small molecules, such as glucose, urea, ions and water are cleaned out and passed through the nephron tubule. The larger molecules such as blood proteins, cannot fit through the capillary wall as they are too big, therefore they stay in the bloodstream. • Reabsorption – When the small molecules are cleaned…

    magnesium imbalance, common caused by malnutrition, medications, chronic diarrhea, alcoholism, malnutrition. Signs and symptoms of magnesium imbalance are abnormal heart rhythms, confusion, seizures, muscle cramps and weaken, nausea, vomiting. Bicarbonate as buffer helps in the regulation of acids. Alkalosis is when the blood pH is above 7.45 and acidosis below 7.35. We need a good diet to regulate most electrolytes essential for body function. Mrs. Meriwether also has urinary system…

    Sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3), or sodium hydrogen carbonate, also known as baking soda and bicarbonate of soda, is a soluble white crystalline compound, with a slight alkaline taste resembling that of sodium carbonate. It is found in many mineral springs, in natural deposits in USA and is mainly produced by the Solvay process: NaCl + NH3 + CO2 + H2O NaHCO3 + NH4Cl Sodium bicarbonate, when exposed to an acid, releases carbon dioxide and water: NaHCO3 + HCl NaCl + H2O + CO2 (gas) Above 70°C,…

    Many can probably guess that lethal coal mines, the offshore drilling explosions and the catastrophic Gulf of Mexico oil spill as being a principal culprit of ocean acidification but have you ever thought that global warming actually has a much larger role in ocean acidification than we think? That is why we need to be educated on what ocean acidification is, what are the effects of ocean acidification, who are the ones being mostly affected, and how can we resolve this issue. According to NOAA…

    The purpose of this lab was to analyze the impact different concentrations of bicarbonate solution had on the rate of photosynthesis in spinach disks. We derived a hypothesis that stated if the concentration of bicarbonate solution increased, the rate of photosynthesis would escalate causing the disks to rise faster to the top of the syringe. When conducting the baseline experiment using a 0.2% bicarbonate solution, the spinach disks starting rising around the ninth or tenth minute. However we…

    • 4 Pages

    The values that arise from the feed analysis were: the dry matter, crude protein, acid detergent fibre, neutral detergent fibre, pH level and ash. Specifically, the value for the dry matter is the corrected value in order to allow for acids, volatile acids and other components that lost on oven drying. The crude protein which is determined from the total nitrogen of silage is 88.33 (g/kg DM). The value of the acid detergent fibre which is a measurement of lingin, cellulose and lignified nitrogen…
