    produced is able to neutralise the HCl produced in the stomach by exchanging the H+ in the solution with the Na+ forming citric acid, which is a weaker acid than hydrochloric acid. There is also an excess amount of Sodium Bicarbonate present with solution and the bicarbonate ions act as the main buffering agents neutralising any acid or alkali added producing water. (UMN 2000); the NaHCO3 is an antacid, so also helps neutralise stomach acidity, relieving acid indigestion and heartburn.…

    the photosynthetic rate of spinach leaves were observed. Using the ‘spinach immersion’ technique, the rate of photosynthesis under various conditions was quantified by observing the amount of spinach floating on top of a sodium bicarbonate solution. The sodium bicarbonate solution simultaneously supplied the spinach with carbon dioxide for use in photosynthesis, and caused it to sink. When the leaf underwent photosynthesis and produced oxygen gas, the leaf floated to the surface. It was…

    The ocean is a vast vista of blossoming life and mysterious wonders that lurk in the deep. Our exquisite ocean is being ravaged through a process known as ocean acidification. Ocean acidification is the process of carbon dioxide and numerous gases being absorbed into the ocean, which raises the ocean’s pH, causing it to become more acidic. Contrary to popular belief, terrestrial vegetation does not intake all of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The ocean absorbs about fifty-percent of…

    pH of the ocean becomes less and force the pH of water to be acidic. Rather than this reaction there are other reactions between CO2 and non-carbonate rocks which also add bicarbonate into the oceans. Later on, the reverse of the above reaction will undergo and form more carbonate rocks, then releasing half of the bicarbonate as CO2. Since most of the CO2 produced by human activities and pumped into the atmosphere will dissolve in the ocean, then…

    low pH in Mr. Henderson’s blood are related in this case. Mr. Henderson hypoventilation decreased his oxygen to his lungs and that resulted with build up of carbon dioxide. Describe how the high bicarbonate in Mr. Henderson’s blood is related to the low pH in his urine. The high measure of bicarbonate in Mr. Henderson's blood caused by hypoventilation causing metabolic acidosis and then causing the ph-urine to lower. What type of intervention might the doctors and nurses initiate in order to…

    Determining the Rate of Photosynthesis and the Effect That pH Has on It Abstract - The purpose of this experiment was to determine what variables affect the rate of photosynthesis. The variable tested was the pH level of the “environment” and this was tested using leaf discs from a plant. By testing the leaf discs in different pH levels of two, four, six, eight, and ten, it was found that the rate of photosynthesis was at its highest in a pH of six. It was also found that the rate of…

    Electrolytes affect the amount of water in your body, the acidity of your blood (pH), your muscle function, and other important processes. Electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, and others that are critical in allowing cells to generate energy, maintain the stability of their walls, and to function in general. They generate electricity, contract muscles, move water and fluids within the body, and participate in other activities.The concentration of electrolytes in the body is controlled by…

    the buffer bicarbonate encounters H+ ions or an acidic substance containing these ions and bonds with them in order to form carbonic acid. This reduces the number of free acidic H+ ions and restores the pH to a more basic level. In the other case where a basicity of the substance is increased, a buffer like carbonic acid is used. Take this equation for example: H2CO3 + OH- → HCO3- + H2O. In this case, carbonic acid reacts to the OH- ions from a basic substance and produces bicarbonate and…
