  • Vitamin Water Experiment

    in vitamin water had to be determined. To do this, three methods were applied. The first was by a calibration plot method, where zinc standards were prepared and from the absorbance of those standards a calibration curve was plotted, which in turn was used to determine the amount of zinc in vitamin water. The second method was standard addition. For this method, an un-spiked and spiked solution were prepared. The un-spiked solution only contained the vitamin water, while the spiked contained the…

We might assumed that heat will remain at where it was absorbed and temperature will decrease exponentially with depth, just with the light and may remain constant at the hypolimnion (Lampert and Sommer, 2007). Water has the properties of high heat capacity, thus the larger lake might tends to moderate the local climate and provide the longer growing season for aquatic life (Wetzel and Likens, 2000). Temperature is…
