  • Mesozooplankton Feeding Analysis

    This is because each functional response has relatively different initial functional response pathways, even though they all are increasing. For analyzing mesozooplankton grazing we would have expected to see the data follow either a Holling type II or III functional response curve. For as Frost discusses in his paper mesozooplankton eventually reach a maximum saturation level, where it no longer matters how much phytoplankton are available they can not consume, nor process them any faster. Therefore, making it improbable that the data would fit a Holling type I response as mesozooplankton cannot exponentially increase their ingestion rate. However, if we were to have obtained a Holling type I response in our data it would be important that we re-run our experiment and increase phytoplankton concentrations past 30000 cells/mL as the concentration range that we were in might not have been large enough for the mesozooplankton to reach their maximum saturation level, making it in fact a Holling type II response. In order to distinguish whether our current data would fit a Holling type II or III response we could re-run the experiment, increasing the different amounts of phytoplankton concentrations within the 0 to 14000 cells/mL range as well as increasing replications of each concentration. This would…

  • Ebay Case Study Analysis

    With the matrix structure, it overlaps both the functional design, which is what Omidyar initially started out with and the divisional design. Within the matrix structure method, employees belong to at least two groups at the same time. For example, within the functional areas Omidyar set up initially, someone in finance could have knowledge and work in the operations division of the company and vice versa. The workers would also report to two supervisors – one within the functional group and…

  • Functional Behavior Analysis

    The articles were obtained from the Brandman University 's academic journal database the results were as followed: The article Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA): An Emerging Component of Best School Practices for ADHD (Olympia, Larson, & Goldstien, 2005). Discussed what FBA is: an assessment strategy that focuses on identifying situational and environmental conditions that are usually associated with problem behaviors (Olympia, et. al., 2005). There is a current discussion between…

  • Azo Dye Lab Report

    INTRODUCTION Dyes exist in natural and synthetic forms in the world; they are used for the purpose of changing colors of different materials. William Perkins first discovered the azo dye on accident after adding alcohol to a product in the lab. They have the ability to do this due to the molecules of the dyes possessing conjugation. Conjugation is defined as p-orbitals overlapping which causes the electrons within to be delocalized; it is also seen in molecules and compounds that contain…

  • Methylcyclohexane Research Paper

    New ultraviolet (UV) curable prepolymer, 2–hydroxy–3–[p–(1–{2–hydroxy–3–(isopro– phenylcarbonyloxypropoxy) phenyl} methylcyclohexyl) phenoxy] propyl acrylate (BISCHDA) was synthesized by the reaction of p–[1–(p–hydroxyphenyl) methylcyclohexyl] phenol with methylcyclohexanone, epoxidation with epichlorohydrin followed by addition reaction with acrylic acid. All synthesized compounds were characterized by 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR and FT-IR spectroscopy. Several UV-curable formulated solutions were prepared…

  • Caprolactam And Nylon 66

    CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1. Introduction Caprolactam (CPL) is an organic compound with the formula (CH2)5C(O)NH. This colourless solid is a lactam or a cyclic amide of caproic acid. Caprolactam was first described in the late 1800s by Gabriel and Mass, when it was prepared by the cyclization of ε-aminocaproic acid, the product of the hydrolysis of caprolactam. In the months after Schlack’s discovery the first stocking were produced from Perlon. All the Perlon produced went to the war effort.…

  • Industrial Applications Of Citric Acid

    detergents. By chelating the metals in hard water, it lets these cleaners produce foam and work better without need for water softening. Citric acid is the active ingredient in some bathroom and kitchen cleaning solutions. A solution with a 6% concentration of citric acid will remove hard water stains from glass without scrubbing. In industry, it is used to dissolve rust from steel. Citric acid can be used in shampoo to wash out wax and coloring from the hair. (3) 3. Cosmetics, pharmaceuticals,…

  • Formation Of Carboxylic Acid Group

    semicircle, which suggested a low [Fe(CN)6]-3/-4 transfer resistance. Whereas P(AA-co-EHA)/ silica nanohybrids were modified onto the bare GCE surface, the [Fe(CN)6]-3/-4 transfer resistance values (Rc, Table2) increased dramatically, which showed poor electron transfer ability of the nanohybrids. The resistance value of P(AA-co-EHA)/ silica-modified electrodes containing APTS (121.9 Ωcm2) and lower silica content decreased obviously in comparison with resistance value (2671 Ωcm2) of the…
