  • Chemistry: Calcium And Magnesium

    percent of the 8 elements form the mass of the earth’s crust, ocean and atmosphere. Two of the most abundant elements of the eight are calcium and magnesium. Calcium and magnesium are located on the periodic table located both in group 2 sharing the same family meaning that they share chemical property’s as well as the same valence electron because of their location and family relation to the period table. The alkaline metals are a reactive group of metals and combine with other elements so easily that they are not found on earth in the form of their free metal. They are seen in nature in the form of ionic compounds like calcium carbonated and this occurs naturally in limestone etc. Alkaline earth metals…

  • Calcium Supplementation In Dogs Case Study

    Calcium Supplementation in Dogs There are many reasons why owners feel the need to supplement their dogs with certain nutrients. They may be trying to fill holes in their dog’s diet to ensure that the dog is getting the proper nutrition, or they may feel that the life stage that their animal is in requires a higher dosage or certain nutrients or minerals. Whatever the case may be for introducing certain mineral and nutrient supplements into a dog’s diet, it is important to understand the issues…

  • Funny Bones Research Paper

    mineral, which is primarily calcium, in an area of the bone. Bone density is lost as people age. It has been linked to two thirds of a bone's strength (Sutton 33, 79,189). Bone density correlates to the strength of the bone. It is a concise way to measure this. Without strong bones, horrible consequences can occur. The National Osteoporosis Foundation estimates that nearly 34 million people have low bone density on top of the 10 million who suffer from osteoporosis, a disease of low bone…

  • Diet Sodas And Soda Diets

    phosphoric acid. Phosphorus is an essential for all cells in the body. This is because “it is involved in cell signaling, bone formation, and acid-base regulation”(cefic). The compound earlier stated, hydroxyapatite contains both calcium and phosphorus, which are critical for growth and development of the bone structure, as well as the maintenance throughout life. Phosphorus is a mineral acid found in many different foods naturally; however, the amount found in diet soda is unnatural. Elson M.…

  • Bone Scan Case Study

    Patients that will be excluded will be patients that - have thyroid problems - are unfit patients - are on a stretcher or wheel chair in order to minimise their discomfort and reduce the time they spend in the department filling out a consent form as well as having to have to take bone supplements. - Patients excluded will also be those patients in which the injection gets tissued (the entire injection isn’t intravenous some are intramuscular). - Hyperthyroid as well as hypothyroid patients…

  • Osteoblasts In Bone Formation

    1. Describe Ossification during Fetal Development. During the fetal development the first stage of the “bones” is cartilage which resembles bones but is more flexible due to the lack of calcium salts as it develops calcium salts are deposit into it all through until after it is born to life. As a result, the process of gradual replacement of immature bone cells and calcium deposits is called Ossification. 2. What are the roles of Osteoclasts in bone formation? The roles of Osteoclasts in bone…

  • Alkalinity Lab

    coagulation more difficult (1). In coagulation, when the alkalinity naturally present in water is insufficient, calcium hydroxide and sodium carbonate can be added to supply alkalinity to react with the coagulant(6). Alkalinity (carbonate and bicarbonate) affects corrosion rates of some metals. A published document (5) refers that some metals solubility is increased at low pH as well as high alkalinity. The alkalinity of most surface waters is principally a function of carbonate, bicarbonate,…

  • Separation Of Calcium Hydroxide

    Calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH)2), universally referred to as lime water or slaked lime is formed by reacting hydrated lime (calcium oxide, CaO) with water (H2O)[1] CaO (s) + H2O (l) ⇌ Ca(OH)2 (aq) (ΔHr = −63.7 kJ/mol of CaO) Calcium hydroxide is an economically favorable alkaline reagent to neutralize acid as it yields 2 moles of (OH)2 for every 1 mole of Ca(OH)2 (which is slightly soluble in water) when compared to sodium hydroxide [1] and it may separate from the solution ‘constant agitation must…

  • Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva Research Paper

    1. What is FOP? Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva is a rare genetic disease in which a person’s bones will begin to form into the muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and connective tissues. Overtime the development will restrict a person’s movement. It has been described as turning a person into stone because their body is essentially encased by a second skeleton. 2. What are the initial symptoms? Symptoms of Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva, include: an infant being born with short,…
