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.

    Second, the photometer and branch were attached to the clamp stand and the plant was left to rest for 10 minutes. To the same clamp stand the sensors of humidity and temperature were attached in order to control the controlled variables.

    would grow heavily to the right the next day, maintaining their upright position. If one was to look at Charts 3.1 - 3.5, one would find a sharp increase in bend degree on March 17, the day after the beans were rotated 90 degrees to the left.

    This was supported by the results I have obtained. According to the result, the rate of oxygen consumption for germinating seeds in room temperature (21�C�1�C) was 0.1003 ml/min and the one in ice water (5�C�1�C) was 0.0039 ml/min. Contrarily, the rate of oxygen consumption for non-germinating seeds in room temperature (21�C�1�C)

    At this point, weigh the initial mass of the cell and record it using an electric scale. 9. Place the cellulose tubing into each beaker. 10. Place the 5 beakers in a cupboard, and wait 24 hours for osmosis to take place.

    The time was very important in our experiment, as the reactions that occurred happened fairly quickly, and an inaccurate reading of time may have made big changes in our results. We kept the 2-minute rule by using a stopwatch. Volume The volume and amount water/ H2O2 used in our experiment was always held at a constant amount.
