Diffusion In Agar Cubes Lab

Before the cubes were submerged into NaOH: The cubes after 30 seconds of submersion: 5 minutes of submersion: After 10  minutes if submersion: The cubes cut into halves after the 10 minutes of submersion: data table:   Conclusion Questions: 1. In terms of maximizing diffusion, what was the most effective size cube that you tested? The…

DNA and Protein Synthesis Lab

DNA Model 1) Explain the structure of DNA- use the terms nucleotides, anti-parallel strand, and complementary base pairing DNA is a large polymer made of nucleotide monomers with two backbones. It contains deoxyribose, phosphate, and nitrogen bases. The phosphate and sugar make up the backbone and the nitrogen base attaches to the other strands. The structure…

Week 16- Solving Rational Equations

This week in pre-calculus, we learned how to solve rational equations. We can cross multiply when there are two fractions on both sides of the equal sign, but when there are more than two fractions, you would have to find the common denominator and multiply each side to get rid of the denominator to solve the equation….

Week 13- Reciprocal Functions

This week we learned how to solve absolute value equations, and then we learned about linear and quadratic reciprocal functions. You can find that there are some patterns that exist when trying to graph reciprocal functions. reciprocal: one pair of numbers whose product is 1 when multiplied together a positive(+) number reciprocates into a positive number a negative(-)…
