    • 5 Pages

    First, I would do a lung volume test. This test measures the volume of air in the lungs at distinct periods of the breathing cycle. It is accomplished utilizing a machine called the plethysmography. You are seated during the exam and will be asked to breathe in and out of a mouthpiece and sometimes to gasp for air (Ranu et al., 2011). The exam is specifically beneficial in distinguishing between restrictive lung diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis and obstructive lung diseases such as asthma. Secondly, I would do a maximal voluntary ventilation test (MVV). This measures the greatest quantity of air that can be breathed in and breathed out in one minute. The exam is commonly carried out greater than 15 seconds, which will require you to breathe in and out as vigorously as possible (Ranu et al., 2011). This exam can be beneficial in evaluating the overall capacity of the respiratory system. It might be diminished in cases of asthma, upper airway…

    acute dynamic lung hyperinflation, dyspnea is increasingly implicated as the primary symptom causes exercise limitation and skeletal muscle deconditioning as a result of avoidance activity. Hyperinflation, refers to an increase in lung volume above the resting volume due to air trapping, is the crucial consequence of mechanical restriction of this…

    For our first model we choose to make four rectangular prisms, and one cube to make a pair of glasses for the two Ping-Pong ball model. We choose these shapes because, we both knew how to find the surface area and volume of them to the point where it wasn’t easy, but it was not super difficult. We felt safe using these shapes. When put together they also can be taped together perfectly to resemble a pair of glasses. We thought that this would be a great model to make because, for one thing my…

    Lab 4 in Chem 115 has three parts all calculating density. In part one, a 100 mL beaker, a volumetric pipet, and an analytical scale were obtained. To begin, the mass of the beaker was taken using an analytical scale. Then, 10.0 mL of an unknown liquid was transfered to the beaker using the volumetric pipet. Next, the mass of the beaker and liqiud was recorded along with the letter identifying the unknown liquid. By subtracting the mass of the 100 mL beaker from the mass of the beaker and…

    density to determine if the slab is the same substance as one of the cubes. In order to do so, the mass of each of the two cubes, and the slab were taken, and the dimensions of each were accurately measured. The dimensions were multiplied to find the volume, and the volume and mass were then used to find a comparable value, the density of each object. The mass and volume of an irregularly shaped stone were then found, and from this, the density of the stone was calculated. The density of the dot…

    Introduction In this lab, we are measuring the ranges R of the ball as the function of the heights, H, that the ball is dropped from. I will use these data to determined the relationship between the height and the range. Procedure We divided this experiment into three parts. In the part one, the object was to observe the scatter in data. To do this, we set up the equipment: the bounce plate is 20 cm above the table ,the drop plate 20 cm above the bounce plate, a piece of carbon paper…

    Introduction: Introduction and Theory: The lab conducted was to investigate the density of not only copper but also diet and non-diet soda. Techniques used in the experiment included water-displacement, measuring copper’s dimensions, and using volumetric pipettes to measure out specific soda volumes. Beginning Question(s): How does the use of two experimental methods, improve the chances of calculating the density of copper? How does the density of non-diet soda compare to that of diet soda…

    Report: Molar Volume of a Gas at STP Abstract: The purpose of this experiment is to find out how to experimentally determine what the volume of a mole of H₂(g) is at STP by using gas laws. The hypothesis for the experiment is that if H₂(g) is produced at RT and STP, Avogadro’s law can be used to experimentally determine the amount of H₂(g) because equal gases at the same pressure and temperature have the same amount of particles. In order to find the molar volume, hydrogen gas was…
