  • Soil Characterisation Essay

    detailed description of soil locations, textures and physio-chemical properties can be found in Sections 2.3.1(page 41) and 3.3.1(page 56). We selected four types of soils out of seven types of soils, namely MGA, KBA, TAA and DUA. Key soil characterisation of these four soils is summarised in Table 4.2. The reason why these four types of soils were chosen for this chapter was that they had distinct soil parameters in terms of total organic carbon (TOC), Fe oxide, Al oxide, pH which have been…

  • Optimum Temperature Of Amylase

    The experiment about pH brace our hypothesis because the pH of the enzyme amylase is 7. It has correlation because human beings have pH of 7 as well. The pH of 7 is known as neutral. This means that the concentration of H+(hydrogen) ions and OH- (hydroxide) ions is 10⁻⁷. For example, saliva is an enzyme amylase in the human body. It needs to have a pH of 7 will not denature because it is neutral. Therefore, the amylase will be effective. Also, it has adapted to the pH, so it can breakdown the…
