  • Ultraviolet Light Lab Report

    Title: The effectiveness of different makeups at same SPF level at blocking ultraviolet light in normal daily lives. Group members participated in the experiment: Mathurra Siva, Julia Enriquez and Jindi Li Introduction Background information: Ultraviolet (UV) light is electromagnetic waves which travel at a same speed of 300000000 m per seconds through the space from the sun. UV light is crucial for the human’s body as it helps people to produce vitamin D. However, excess of UV light without protections can lead to sunburn, skin irritates and even skin cancer, melanoma. Human’s skin naturally blocks the UV light by producing melanin, a type of chemical and pigment, in the body when exposed to UV light. Melanin is produced by melanocytes which…

  • Why Is Ultraviolet Radiation (UV) So Harmful?

    sunshine and warmer temps comes intensified UV radiation, which can damage our skin and eyes. Why is Ultraviolet Radiation (UV) so Harmful? You’ve heard UV rays are bad, but did you know that the United States Department of Health and Human Services and the World Health Organization have declared them a carcinogen? You may also not be aware there are three different types of UV radiation, each emitting a different wavelength: UVA Radiation: That “A” on the end stands for aging, by the way! UVA…

  • Skin Color Evolution

    100 thousand years ago that was certainly not the case.[Bryce] The evolution of skin color over the past 100 thousand years is due to the combination of three factors: skin exposure, ultraviolet rays, and Vitamin D. [Jablonski and Chaplin] These factors attribute to the wide spectrum of skin colors seen across the globe and explains why in Senegal, Africa there are some of the darkest skin pigments, but just 2700 miles north in Ireland, the palest skin pigments can be observed. While many of the…

  • Human Body Synthesis Essay

    The human body has evolved throughout time, adapting to the environment that they live in. The sun is part of the environment that everyone and anything is exposed to everyday, but the sun produces ultraviolet radiations that can damage the human skin and lead to skin cancer. Ultraviolet radiation is composed of three types of rays; ultraviolet A, ultraviolet B, and ultraviolet C. Ultraviolet C is the most dangerous type of radiation, but does not penetrate the earth’s ozone layer unlike…

    surrounding it, and tends to float upwards” ("(S-1) Sunlight and the Earth," 2006). This process is the reason we have weather here on earth. Another process that is key to earth having weather is the water cycle, which involves the circulation of water on earth. The sun heats the water and it is then turned into water vapor. The buoyant warm air rises with this vapor and as a result clouds are formed. When the clouds become overfilled with water vapor, the vapor cools back into water and falls…

  • The Role Of UVR In Skin Cancer

    non-melanoma skin cancers. The most common methods of reducing UVR exposure include sunscreens, shade seeking, sun avoidance and skin coverage via clothing and hats.2 In the future, skin cancer prevention may be acquired through dietary supplementation. In a recent article in the journal of Demato-Endocrinology, the authors discuss the link between low serum levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 with development of melanoma lesions of thicker size and overall poorer prognosis.4 There are a limited…

  • Skin Coloration Theory

    because they moved from their natural environment leaving behind the protection of trees and forests to a new environment which was mostly open savannah. Chimps have light skin covered with hair and that is how humans were before they evolved but in the savannah they found little shade and little protection from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation. Therefore natural selection (a mechanism by which evolution takes place) resulted in an increased production of melanin which absorbs the energy…

  • Summary On Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles With Defects

    optoelectronics, sensors, transducers and bio-medical sciences [2]. the control over ZnO’s rich defect chemistry which is important in controlling properties is the reason for having its vast range of applications. ZnO usage in low pressure methanol synthesis as a component of composite catalysts as it prolongs the catalyst life [3]. ZnO after reduction leads to the formation of oxygen vacancies this in turn helps the catalytic activity by acting as an active site for CO adsorption at the start…

  • E. Coli Lab Report

    amount of time (~20 seconds). The growth of these E. coli colonies after being exposed to the light will be studied at room temperature (22 °C) and at a set incubator temperature (37 °C). Each of these locations will have one colony that is exposed to light (windowsill) and one that is exposed to dark (covered by a box) to see if light conditions impact growth. In addition, four more E. coli plates with will be used in each location, light and dark without any UV treatment to serve as controls…

  • Light Spectroscopy Lab Report

    Then, using the same procedure as before, the solutions ' ultraviolet absorptions at 450 and 595 were determined and recorded in Table 4. As for the BCA assay, 100 microliters of each ovalbumin dilution were combined with 900 microliters of BCA, and the resulting solution were analyzed with a spectrophotometer in order to determine the uv absorbances at 560 nanometers (Data displayed in Table…
