Conclusion

The eggs were different from one another. Some were softer and had a more bouncy feeling to them, while others were hard. This can become a problem in the observations and in the size and mass increase. Some of the egg shells were not completely eroded by the acid. This could have resulted in different masses, and might have let in more or less water. Improving: To control the amount of solution in each beaker, it should be measured. There should be enough to top the egg by about 1-2 cm to ensure we can see if it floats or sinks. The eggs should be made sure to be about the same softness. This ensures more accurate numbers, mass, and size changes. The eggs should be left in acid until the shell is completely eroded. This ensures there is no more shell that could change the mass and size changes. ?? ?? ?? ?? May 27th, 2009 ...read more.

    In the experiment, it is found that plants respond to light stimuli by growing towards the light source. If one was to look at Charts 3.1 - 3.5, one would find that the bend degree to the right gets higher each day.

  1. Bio lab - Oxygen Consumption in germinating and non-germinating seeds

    So, non-germinating seeds carry out slower cellular respiration thus, consuming less oxygen than the germinating seeds. The germinating seeds in room temperature consumed more oxygen than the ones in iced water due to the rate of cellular respiration. As the temperature increases, the kinetic energy increases, meaning that the molecules move faster.

    Using a hole-puncher, small circles were created from the paper. Each disk was covered on each surface with a fine layer of liver. The amount of liver we used in each experiment was very important, as a change in the amount of liver could change the reaction results drastically.
