• ## Jackie Robinson Biography Essay

made up of many racist players. Jackie Robinson had a difficult time, with all the racist comments he received. He could not fight them because he would be kicked off the team. While play on the Monarchs, Jackie Robinson had a very good batting average and stolen base Percentage (Obias). Because of his stats, it caught a Major League Baseball manager’s eye. His name was Branch Rickey (Swaine). Branch Rickey was the manager for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Rickey was the only person who saw Jackie’s talent in baseball, rather than his color (Swaine). Before Rickey signed Robinson, he explained to him the dangers in being the only African-American in Major League Baseball. Branch Rickey told Jackie that if he fights back, he will be released from the team immediately. Robinson agreed to all the terms and was then signed to the Brooklyn Dodgers. The first time Jackie Robinson played a game for the Dodgers was on April 15, 1947, where he played shortstop and second base (“Jackie Robinson Biography”). The fans absolutely hated him. He was greatly discouraged. That continued long after his debut, until people finally realized how good of a player he was. Robinson’s Batting average was an amazing .311. He lead the MLB in most bases stolen. Jackie won the National League MVP in 1949, and helped his team win a World Series and 6 pennants. Jackie hit the game winning home run in the World Series; in the 14th inning. Unfortunately he retired from baseball in 1957 because of health reasons.…

• ## Equivalence Point Lab Report

solution should be a faint pink color. If the color is too dark of a pink that means that it is overly titrated. The independent variable is the amount of base being added to the solution. The dependant variable is the indicator. The constant variable is the acid which is in the flask. When the solid acid dissolves to form ions, 1 mole of H+ ions are produced for every mole of acid being used. Molarity is used to calculate moles per liter of solution. The most dangerous part of this lab is…

• ## Phenolphthalein Chemistry Lab Report

The reaction of phenolphthalein reacting with sodium hydroxide consists of C20H14O4+ NaOH → NaKC8H4O4 (aq)+ H2O(l) Phenolphthalein is used as an indicator in this reaction because it changes color when a solution reaches a pH of around eight, or in other words the endpoint of a solution. It also allows us to see a physical change, thus resulting in a more accurate measure of how much was titrated. Citric acid is a weak acid, making it best titrated by using a strong base, such as sodium…

• ## Common Carp Fish Case Study

3.2. Chemical quality parameters and pH value:- 3.2.1. Chemical quality properties, pH values and total plate count (TPC):- Total volatile basic -nitrogen (TVB-N), the peroxide value (PV), pH and total plate count (TPC) are good index to determine the freshness and quality of fishes and their products. Data presented in Table (4) show the values of TVB-N, PV,…

• ## Freezing Salt Water Hypothesis

Freezing salt-water experiment Contents: Contents, introduction and literature review on page 1. Aim, hypothesis, variables, risk assessment, materials and method on page 2. Results on page 3. Discussion and conclusion on page 4. Introduction: I have decided to do my SRP on salt water freezing because our planet is 71% water and about 96.5% of it is in the ocean which it is salt water so this is why I was interested in seeing how much salt, depresses the water from freezing. Literature…

• ## Zinc Elements Lab

Zinc was used as a known based on the abundance of the element. Also, zinc acts as an example for how to observe acid and base reactions. When at first submerging zinc in the H2SO4 it seemed as if the zinc was nonreactive; however, after some time bubbles started to form a layer on the zinc indicating that a chemical reaction was occurring. The long wait time associated with an observable reaction can be seen as a limitation of zinc. If the reaction was not left to sit then it might be recorded…

• ## Analysis Of Ka And Pkb

DETERMINATION OF pKa AND pKb USING ACID-BASE TITRATIONS Introduction Acid-base titrations can be used to determine pKa of a weak acid and pKb of a base. A weak acid and a weak base incompletely dissociate in water. For this reason, the concentration of hydrogen ions (H+) and hydroxide ions (OH-) depend on equilibrium coefficients of acid (Ka) and base (Kb). Equation 1 shows the chemical dissociation equation of a weak acid. Furthermore, Equation 2 describes the equilibrium constant of a weak…

• ## Argumentative Essay On Alkaline Water

Have you ever heard about alkaline water? Do you really know what it is? When it comes to alkaline water, you should know this water is slightly basic. It has basic minerals, including magnesium, calcium and bicarbonate. All these compounds will bind to hydrogen ions in solution, making the water more basic. Moreover, this type of water refers to its pH level, which is a number that measures how alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0-14. For example, if something will have a pH level of 1, it…

• ## Phenol Degradation Lab Report

The influence of selected variables such as pH of phenol solution, concentration of hydrogen peroxide, concentration and the volume of phenol to be treated was studied to find the degree on the degradation of phenol. The influence of these variables on the degradation of phenol using H2O2 by interpreting the TOC results is presented in the following sections. 3.1 Effect of pH The phenol degradation with different pH is shown in Figure 3. As it is clearly seen, a higher pH favors the removal…
