  • Infiltration Lab Report

    Infiltration investigation Introduction Infiltration is the process by which water on the ground surface enters the soil. The infiltration rate is the velocity or speed at which water enters into the soil. It is usually measured by the depth (in mm) of the water layer that can enter the soil in one hour. On the 2nd of October, we were split into groups and we had to do an infiltration investigation. The experiment was set out to find out whether the infiltrations rate throughout the school were…

  • Effects Of The Hydrological Cycle

    Hydrologic cycle refers to the movement and storage of water between the land, oceans and atmosphere (Kuchment 2004). It involves several main processes, which include evaporation of water from the oceans, condensation of the atmospheric moisture to form clouds, precipitation, transpiration and so on (Hubbart 2011). There are mainly three types of human activities that affect the hydrological cycle, namely surface water regulation related to lakes and rivers, water release and abstraction, and…

  • Transpiration Lab Hypothesis

    Transpiration as a whole is the general cycle for water regarding plants, this includes the movement of water throughout the plant itself and the movement of water leaving the organism. However, most definitions of transpiration focus on aerial parts such as the stomata on the leaves. The adhesion and cohesion of water is something very important to life. It is these properties that allow the movement of water against gravity. Without these traits, water could not be used to sustain life.…
