The A50 is a fairly new road & was initially built as part of the Toyota Burnaston development to improve transport times Toyota Burnaston is well served by the surrounding areas at providing a skilled work force. Places like Rolls Royce & Railway Engineering make derby an historic place for engineering. Also Toyota employs employees from places like Coventry, the centre of British car industry. The fact that Toyota Burnaston is located near suppliers & as a central overview on its customers, via Toyota dealerships which serves the UK market, makes Burnaston an inviting positive location. Also, Toyota's Engine manufacturing plant at Deeside is only 1 1/2 hours away by road. The reason why Toyota Burnaston was placed in the UK was to penetrate the UK & European Markets therefore, Toyota have strong Links with other Toyota operations in Europe. On map C, these operations are located. ?? ?? ?? ?? Toyota Burnaston 1F Case Study. ...read more.

  1. Demonstrate the separation of plant pigments using chromatography and the rate of photosynthesis in ...

    In this experiment, DPIP "replaced" NADP+. As the chloroplasts absorbed more light for photosynthesis, the DPIP accepted more electrons. By reducing DPIP, the color of the solution changed from blue to clear. In cuvettes where photosynthesis was taking place, the color of the solution changed. To get accurate results, a spectrophotometer was used to measure the percent of light transmittance.

    From the data, it is inferred that the signs of water loss include soft, flexible, pliable, and supple leaf texture with folding edges. The weakness of this experiment includes many aspects. When applied, the Vaseline gel may not have coated the entire surface; thus, leaving a few stomata pores exposed to the surrounding atmosphere.
