    had inactive ingredients of polysorbate 80 and PEG degraded at a rate that was much greater than those that did have contain those ingredients (Cory, W. Harris, C. Martinez, S.) Furthermore, another study found that most drugs could be used effectively after exposed to a specific extreme climate for a limited amount of time, but that those that claim to be temperature sensitive should be replaced once a year after exposure to any temperatures outside of the recommended range (Kupper, T; et al.). In this study, the degradation of acetaminophen was studied by exposing acetaminophen tablets (Walgreens Well generic brand) to harsh conditions in a Cincinnati Sub-Zero MicroClimate Chamber, which was set at a both high heat (70 C°) and high relative humidity (75% RH). The recommended storage temperature for the tablets to remain viable the longest was 15- 30 C°. These tablets (containing 500 mg of acetaminophen) were then removed at two week intervals ranging from week 0 (control) to week 8 (the final tablet) before they were placed in a refrigerator (5 C°). The tablets used had an expiration date of August 2017, meaning that the tablets that underwent the experiment were deemed by the manufacturer to be within the label claim percentages set forth by the FDA (90-110%). These tablets were stored in such harsh conditions to determine the speed of degradation and the substances would become present after the degradation process was complete. Experimental: Reagents and Materials…

    This chapter presents the model equations and assumptions. The physical properties of charcoal and air, the initial conditions, as well as the important system parameters are then outlined. Solution algorithm of the model equations is then explained. The effect of the intra-particle diffusion is examined by means of effective mass transfer coefficient. It can be obtained by similarity with heat transfer by conduction. Finally, the criterion for choosing the optimum switching time is set. 4.1.…

    a completely randomized design one week before the experimental phase. Treatments were arranged in a 2 × 2 factorial with factors of 0 or 10 mg of ZH per lamb daily and 0 or 6% soybean oil (SBO) per kg of DM. Adaptation to SBO occurred one week prior to ZH treatment. To ensure complete intake of ZH, 133.33 g was mixed with 19.1 kg of wheat meal and 30 g of this mixture was fed to treatment animals daily before the morning feeding. Groups treated without ZH were fed 30 g/lamb daily of wheat meal.…

    hydroelectric station in a weir in proximity of the camp, information supplied by EWB. Due to this there is a nice rectangular cemented area providing easy access. The principal of the solution is having a steel cooler vaccine box lowered to the weirs depths where the water temperature is at its coolest. The project shall use only native materials of the area or from other towns in Zambia such as Lusaka (which is the Capital city) for the thermometers. The native materials shall be used to…

    These percentages do not go below the 50 percent mark. In 2009, Singapore’s average humidity levels were at 81 percent, which was a relative increase from 77 percent in 2008. When the heavy rain season extends, the relative humidity in Singapore could reach 100 percent. Figuratively, the western side of Singapore experiences more rain as compared to the eastern portion due to the rain’s shadow effect. Singapore’s eastern side receives minimal rainfall and it is also slightly hotter as compared…

    The ideal relative humidity is between 30 and 50 percent, for optimal comfort. The consistent airflow provides improved air filtration and improved air quality. • Energy Efficiency: Variable-speed motors consume less energy than conventional motors. For example, the variable speed motor uses approximately one-eighth the amount of electricity used for a conventional single-speed fan motor when it operates at half speed. Consequently, the variable speed motor can outlast a conventional motor,…

    The day seemed to drag on and on, as I waited, counting down the days to California. It was a humid, sunny afternoon down at the Alton pool, where I usually spend most of my summer days working as a lifeguard. Today was very different than most…. And maybe the reason why was because it was my last day of work before I flew off to the big L.A. Most days at the pool the time went by slower than any I have ever known, with the scorching hot sun burning my skin, and little kids yelling at their…

    scenery was much more satisfying than spending the two weeks stuck in Iowa doing the same old routine. The weather was mystical in Charleston. It was hot- that was a given being in the South, but the heat was a bit different from the Iowan weather I was accustomed to. The air was always warm. And it was like glue. It stuck to my skin like the smell of cigarette smoke that only went away with water and soap. Whenever I got in a car, I felt like someone had placed a blanket over me, preventing the…
