Introduction

Experiment on Spectrophotometer Determination of Cytochrome C: Preparing a Calibration Graph Introduction This is an experiment to determine the concentration of a colored compound in a solution by comparison of its light absorption with the light absorption of a standard solution of a known solution. This experiment will be done by using spectrophotometer, as it will determine the amount of light that will be absorbed by the solution. Also by using the Gilson pipette it enables you to accurately make sure solutions have been measured correctly, also when using the Gilson pipette you should change the tips to stop contamination of the solution. ...read more.

Conclusion

shows me that there is a rise in absorption until it hits the peak at 405 nm, and then there is a sudden drop in absorption. The results of the calibration of cytochrome c show me that it goes up by each test tube, as more ml of stock solution is used. However, the results should show on the graph as a straight line, in this case there must have been an error or the solution was not prepared and measured correctly. The sources of error show a 4%. Overall the experiment was a success as the objectives were met and the absorption of the known solution were recorded. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.

    In the potato groups, the situation is similar. Since potato contains high level of starch that can gelatinize around 60-70?, blanching makes the potato samples have a translucent appearance. Water activity refers to the partial pressure of water above the food surface divided by the pure component vapour pressure of water at the same temperature as the sample.

    As stated by McWilliams (2012), Papain has little effect at room temperature, but it becomes active when the temperature of the meat reaches 55°C (131°F) and increases in activity with additional heating to even 80°C (176°F). Activity ceases when the enzymes is denatured by heat; it is definitely inactive at 85°C (185°F).
