It puts the prisoner into a medically induced coma. The two other drugs used are pancuronium bromide and potassium bromide. Pancuronium bromide stops neuromuscular activity to skeletal muscles which enables movement. Potassium bromide stops the heart, which ends the prisoner’s life. By researching this topic often, I have learned that this method of execution is the most safe and effective way. Its cost…

    liquid form. This is a physical change because its actual material that it consisted didn’t change, meaning, it’s still sugar, but in liquid form. Mixing solid copper sulphate with water is a physical change because a new substance was never formed and the copper sulphate is still copper sulphate, but in a different state. Plus the fact that the final product turned into a mixture (solution), which is another sign of a physical change. The changes I examined that were chemical in my experiment…

    Using qualitative analysis, two cations in an unknown solution was identified. After repeated mixing, centrifugation, and decanting, lead was confirmed in Part A and barium in Part B. In Part C, different colored flames of metal species were observed using cation flame tests. Formula unit, total ionic, and net ionic equations were then composed for the identified cations. If the experiment were to be repeated, step 13 could be ommitted as barium was already confirmed in step 12 with the…

    that were used in this experiment were Pilocarpine, Atropine Sulfate, Epinephrine, Digitals, Potassium, Sodium, and calcium ion concertation. Pilocarpine stimulates the effect of parasympathetic nerve stimulation by enhancing acetylcholine release. Atropine Sulfate is a drug that blocks the effect of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which is liberated by the parasympathetic nerve endings. Cardiac muscle and skeletal muscle are both different in functionally and in fine structure. Epinephrine…

    Chlorine is a chemical added to swimming pools to keep the water free of bacteria and algae. Chlorine levels in swimming pools vary based on how much chlorine has already been used to remove bacteria and how much sunlight has broken down the chlorine molecules. This means that pool owners spend a lot of time testing and adjusting the levels of chlorine in their pools. To reduce the amount of time spent on pool maintenance, pool chemical manufacturer's created chlorine tablets. These tablets are…
