  • Coral Bleaching Effects

    crucial role in carbon recycle on our planet and our oceans absorb one quarter of CO2 that is emitted into our atmosphere. When the ocean absorbs CO2, chemical reactions occur that eventually reduces their pH, carbonate ion concentration and saturation states of important calcium carbonate (CaCO3) minerals. This is known as ocean acidification. With the alteration of acidity, saturation states, and increased temperatures coral…

  • Essay On The Difference Between Theoretical Yield And Stoichiometry

    When both solutions are mixed a white precipitate (Calcium Carbonate) is formed alongside Sodium Chloride. A clear colourless liquid is observed as the white precipitate is filtered through the filter paper.…

  • Co2 Lab Report

    described as ocean acidification, where 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…

  • Alkalinity Lab

    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…

  • Gastroretentive System Of Metformin: Approaches To Effervescent Tablets

    acid or any other suitable acid or acid anhydride) and carbonate and hydrogen carbonates (Sodium, Potassium or any other suitable alkali metal carbonate or hydrogen carbonate) which release carbon dioxide 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…

  • Aspirin Essay

    Introduction The aim of the experiment was to investigate whether different formulations of aspirin would affect its bioavailability. This required the use of normal aspirin tablets, aspirin tablets with sodium bicarbonate, soluble aspirin, and enteric coated aspirin. Depending on which group the students were allocated they administered different formulations of aspirin. The pH and the concentration of salicylate in each urine sample, collected at different time points, was determined after…

  • Biological Impacts Of Ocean Acidification

    (difference between left and right side). In another source, the growth and development of sea urchin in increased carbon dioxide conditions was examined. Over the time period in which the experiment was conducted, sea urchins underwent minor carbonate dissolution. The growth of the sea urchin was reduced. However the stability of the organisms was unchanged. Another effect of increased carbon dioxide included spines of the sea urchin dissolving more severely. This in turn make the sea urchin…

  • 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,…

  • Argument Analysis: Is Milk Good For You?

    Those who were against milk generally said it was because they thought it was unnatural and therefore unhealthy. Sarah Adams believes that milk is not good for us because, “calcium doesn't synthesize into our bodies properly”. In her stated opinion Sarah must assume that the only reason we would drink milk is for the calcium we would supposedly absorb. Her assumption seems reasonable. When she was a kid growing up the popular idea…
