Introduction

Marlene Soares Bridging Science L2 Group2 15/03/2007 1.2 Identify respiration in yeast. Glucose solution Number of bubbles released per minute Average bubble production 1 2 3 4 1% 3 4 3 2 3 5% 7 5 5 5 5.5 10% 6 5 5 6 5.5 Conclusion- Glucose concentration increases and the number of bubble produced increases. Explanation- Glucose is used in respiration to produce carbon dioxide, water and energy. The yeast becomes more active as energy production due to respiration increases. Questions 1- What gas is likely to be present in the bubbles? The gas that is present is carbon dioxide. 2- How would you collect and test the gas to find out if your answer is correct? I will collect the gas with a test tube and then light on; if it will come with a pump sound then I know that carbon dioxide is present. ...read more.

The rate of respiration decreases. Explanation- The collision theory tells us that the temperature increases with the involvement of K.E., glucose, oxygen and enzymes goes up. The number of collision increases and it will have more reactions producing more carbon dioxide. 2.1 Identify methods in which microbial disease are spread. Method of spread Example of disease Physical contact Athletes foot Body fluid to body fluid Aids, rabies, syphilis, gonorrhoea Alborne Flu, tuberculosis, cold Vectors Malaria by mosquito, sleeping sickness by tsetse fly Food borne Food poisoning, tape warm, botulism 2.2 Identify methods to prevent the spread of microbial disease. Aids * Use condom if you have a physical contact with a person that is infected. * Don't use a needle that has already been use. If you need to reused, first sterilize them ten used again. Athlete's foot * Don't walk with bare foot on a dry ground. ...read more.

Conclusion

clothes To remove bacteria Clean the toilet To kill bacteria or germs Take shower every day To reduce or kill bacteria Clean the fridge To reduce bacteria grow 2.4 Identify methods of control of microbes used in the production of food. Food can be preserved by canning * The air tight can keep micro-organisms from getting into food. The food is also heated before being sealed in the can to kill any micro-organisms that are already there. Food can be prevented by frozen * Micro-organisms can't grow and reproduce if it's too cold. Food can be prevented by drying * Micro-organisms need water for life processes. Removing water stops them from growing and reproducing. Food can be prevented by salting * A high concentration of salt makes bacteria "shrivel" due to osmosis. Food can be prevented by pickling vinegar * Most pathogens can't survive low ph Food can be prevented by ultra heat treatment * Heating food to high temperatures for a short time to kill micro-organisms. 1 ...read more.

    effect of temperature on the rate of respiration in yeast

    5 star(s)

    When an electron passes from a carrier at a higher energy level to one that is lower, energy is released. Some energy is lost as heat. At the end of the chain, the hydrogen's and electrons join with oxygen to form water and so we can see the role of oxygen.

    Afterwards the change in rate of reaction is decreased as there is already some emulsification of lipids and so increasing it further only has a small effect on the increase in total surface area to volume ratio. This occurs through the curve until 4% which is anomalous.

    the standard deviation the higher the data are spread around the mean. As you see in the table above the standard deviation for 0% of bile salts, 0.54, is quite high compared to the others which means that the data collected from experiments using 0% bile salts was not very

    was because if too much yeast was placed into the boiling tube, it would bubble during respiration and the froth would travel up the tubing causing further problems. So from my preliminary work I decided 10ml yeast each time was a suitable volume added to the volume of the concentration of sugar and water in the boiling tube.

  2. Investigating how prolonged exposure to its optimum temperature affects the respiration of yeast.

    This is how enzymes are specific to their purpose, and will connect to the reactant and allow an alternative route through the reaction, therefore lowering the activation energy (for example, on the Maxwell-Boltzmann diagram above making it further to the left).
