    completely or mature to an adult. “The Gills are the only physical maturation.” Says Dr. Reid (http://www.theinertia.com/). There are only a few things that people are doing to save this animal. Not counting the fact that the Axolotl is not as popular as Iphones nowadays, but as much as people are on the phones and on the internet you would think that they would find information on it. Maybe if this world wasn’t so lazy and self centered then there would not be so many animals extinct. Some people are keeping them as pets to keep them from being prey. While others are going around picking up trash from the waters. There are even people that are trying to calm down pollution. The Axolotl is a very weird looking large salamander, but not until 1865 were the actually salamanders. They have gills, 4 legs, a long tail with a large flat head and black eyes. Some of them have black markings down the sides of them but not many. It comes in many different colors such as black, brown, grey, gold, purple, pink, blue, and even albino. We as humans are draining lakes for housing additions, causing pollution, and with more humans the less air and water they have to breath. Since 2011 the Axolotl population dropped from 1,500 square miles to 25 square miles. 1,200 may seem like a really big number for such a tiny animal but it’s not. Just like cats and dogs there used to be hundreds on top of hundreds on top of thousands of them. “I am really curious on how long it will be until they…

    Many studies showed that road salt has negative effects on the survival rate of amphibian populations. According to Karraker, N. E., Gibbs, J. P., Vonesh, J. R., they found that large quantities of road salt decreased survival in both Spotted salamanders and Wood frogs. Survival of their embryos also decreased significantly. Amphibians have a lower chance to metamorphose, which is the process of an organism to develop into an adult, causing a lower a survival rate. Sanzo, D., and Hecnar, S. J.…

    The Panamanian Golden Frog proves that size does not matter. The diminutive size was countered by potent defense, as the poison in just one of the frogs could kill about a thousand normal mice (Kolbert, 2014). In addition, their presence has transgressed the animal kingdom as it has left a remarkable impact on the town of El Valle de Antón in Panama. The Panamanian Golden Frog has become a cherished symbol synonymous in the area, as it is associated with good luck and fortune (Kolbert, 2014).…

    The African clawed frog is from Sub-Saharan Africa. It is part of the African species of aquatic frog of the pipidae family. The word xenopus means “strange foot” and laevis means “smooth”. Floppers is a tongueless, toothless and completely aquatic organism along with the rest of the pipidae family. Floppers uses his hands to put food in his mouth and down his throat and a hyobranchial pump to suck things in his mouth. Floppers (apart of the pipidae family) have very strong legs for swimming…

    pressure, and volume are all accounted for. Dalton’s law of partial pressure is another theory that was explored in this lab. It states that the total pressure of a mixture of gases is the sum of the partial pressures of the individual gases. This law makes it possible for the partial pressure of the water vapor to be removed from the total pressure of the gases in the eudiometer tube to yield the partial pressure of hydrogen gas. Molar volume is the volume occupied by one mole of a gas, in this…

    until a mustard color is obtained. Starch is then added to amplify the visual cue as explained before. The solution is then titrated to a milky pink and KSCN is added just before the endpoint. The addition of KSCN is necessary since iodine molecules have a tendency to occlude on the surface of CuI and thus, is not readily reduced by thiosulfate. SCN- can compete with this occlusion and free up the iodine so it can be reduced by thiosulfate. Finally, the solution is titrated until a sudden…

    Introduction Section- The purpose of this experiment is to use reaction stoichiometry to determine the molar mass and the identity of an unknown, powdered metal, and to identify an unknown metal nitrate solution. To give a little background information on this experiment I will start by saying that a balanced chemical equation provides several important pieces of information about a chemical equation. Those important pieces include the substances consumed and formed, the physical states of the…

    The calibration curve observed in this investigation was the relationship measured between the concentration of the cobalt solution, or CO(NO3)2, and the absorbance of the wavelength. As it was impossible to measure the true standard curve, the data points and subsequent graphs demonstrated the qualitative information collected and the trend of these values. The calibration curve closely resembled a straight line, with only minimal deviations in either direction. This indicated that the…

    The problem of the experiment was to determine the volume of one mole of H_(2(g)) at STP. In a way, the problem is essential in understanding how one mole of an ideal gas at STP is always equivalent to 22.4 L. By determining if the volume of a mole of H_(2(g)) is 22.4 L, it supports Avogadro’s law that one mole of an ideal gas occupies 22.4 L at STP. At the same time, it indicates that a direct relationship exists between volume and the number of moles of gas as temperature and pressure stays…
