  • Goldfish Experiment

    Average Metabolic Rate Difference of Goldfish in Dark vs. Ambient Light Introduction Metabolism is an interesting field of study to better understand what is happening inside of the body of different organisms that keep them alive. Goldfish (Carassius auratus) were used for this experiment since these small animals metabolism can be easily influenced by different variables. This is due to the fact that goldfish are poikilothermic whose internal temperature is influenced by their surroundings. Oxygen consumption was used to measure the metabolic rate when goldfish are in ambient light as the control and dark as the experimental variable. These goldfish were put into a closed chamber connected to a computer that sensed the oxygen level within…

  • Starch Osmosis Experiment

    Introduction The experiment will be working with diffusion and osmosis; it will test if the starch will travel through the semi permeable membrane (dialysis tube) causing osmosis. Diffusion is when a substance is highly concentrated turns into a lower concentration, and is evenly distributed throughout. An example of diffusion is when you cook and the smell of food flows until it in dynamic equilibrium; which is the even distribution of the substance. Osmosis is the movement through a semi…

  • Cross Modal Experiment

    Vallet & Versace(2009) created a study to examine the effect cross-modal priming presents when interrupted by visual and auditory simulations/masks, in order to prove that the priming effects is contingent to intuition/knowledge. Two experiments were conducted; each consisted of twenty-four students from Lyon 2 University in France, who were all right-handed and had normal/corrected vision. The first experiment focused on visual priming, which consisted of six practice trials and six…

  • Bottle Rocket Experiment

    These include, event to event weather conditions impacting the motion of the bottle rocket in the the x and z planes. This therefore potentially resulting in an effect on the motion of the bottle and the height data recorded at an unknown level; as opposed to that in theoretical conditions. Moreover, incorrect initial scaling of length measurement on the data analysis soft-wear, could have resulted in incorrect heights being deemed to have been reached by the bottle rocket. The nature of the…
