The Effect of Temperature on Enzyme Activity
The purpose of this lab practice is to investigate the effects of temperature on the denaturation of enzymes.
Introduction: The main biological concept explored was enzyme activity, enzymes are biological molecules (proteins) that act as catalysts and help complex reactions occur everywhere in life. Enzymes are impacted by temperature and pH of their environment, because these factors can denature an enzyme. Denaturing an enzyme is the process of altering the shape of an enzyme, making it unable to serve its proper function. The independent variable in this experiment is the temperature of the catalase (enzyme). The dependant variable is the

This experiment investigates how changing the temperature of water will affect the rate of osmosis of water into the potato cubes. This relates to a specific biological process in the body such as osmosis of water between the extracellular fluid of blood and the red blood cells. By investigating, the effect of temperature on this process of osmosis will allow better understanding and ultimately answering the question of- how does changing human body temperature (eg. fever, hypothermia, hyperthermia) effect hydration levels of red blood cells in the body? It is hypothesised that increasing the temperature will cause the rate of osmosis to increase at a faster rate due to the

Red Kangaroo: Macropus RufusThe Kangaroo is an endotherm. Endotherms generate heat from their body's metabolism. So their internal body temperature is independent of the external temperature. Endotherms eat more food than ectotherms. This higher food intake results in an increased level of metabolism, which is required to produce heat.The Red Kangaroo inhabits inland plains throughout Australia. They prefer open plains where trees and bushes are scarce.The fur on Kangaroos maintains an insulating layer of trapped air that slows down heat exchange with the environment. The thickness of the air layer can be increased in cold conditions by contracting muscles that lift the fur away from the

Candle Practical Report
The aim of the experiment is to determine how the temperature of the candle’s surrounding area
aﬀects the time taken for the flame to extinguish.
A chemical reaction is the formation of a new substance. Combustion is a chemical reaction
because it produces a new substance. This is evident as colour, odour, heat and light are
produced. Oxygen and fuel are required for a flame to burn. A candle burns through using liquid
wax as a fuel which has been melted by the flame, then drawn up the wick. This wax is then
vaporised and broken down into hydrogen and carbon molecules (National Candle Association,
2017). These molecules move up the flame

Calorimetry Lab – Specific Heat of a Metal
Chemists can identify substances on the basis of their chemical and physical properties. One unique physical property of a substance is the amount of energy it will absorb per unit of mass. This property can be measured quite accurately and is called specific heat (Cp). Specific heat is the amount of energy measured in joules, needed to raise the temperature of one gram of the substance one Celsius degree. Often applied to metallic elements, specific heat can be used as a basis for comparing energy absorption and transfer.

The Effect of Temperature on Cell Membranes
By Stephanie Chandler; Updated March 13, 2018
A membrane surrounds every living cell, keeping the cell's interior separated and protected from the outside world. Many factors affect how this membrane behaves and temperature is one of the most important. Temperature helps determine what can enter or leave the cell and how well molecules found within the membrane can function. Temperatures that are too high or too low can seriously damage and, in the extreme temperature ranges, kill the cell through their effect on the cell's membrane.

pressure and proved that gases have matter. The common belief was that gases (or “air”) had no
matter at all was and this was overturned by Torricelli’s invention of the barometer. We can
involve pressure in our everyday lives by a vacuum cleaner. When a vacuum cleaner is turned, the
vacuum sucks air from inside the cleaner and the pressure becomes lower than the surrounding
atmosphere which causes the atmospheric (surrounding) pressure to have more force causing the
air and dirt/dust to be force back inside the vacuum cleaner.

products of oxygen gas (O2) and liquid water (H2O), hence producing a decomposition reaction. Evidently when a decomposition reaction occurs oxygen is the by product and escapes creating prominence of bubbles and heat within the test tube. The higher the efficiency and activity levels of the catalase within the liver the more heat produced in the test tube catalase and h2o2 are directly proportional to one another. Theoretically, enzyme catalase should be most active at internal body temperatures, as internal body temperature is their biological habitat.

Molar Mass of a Volatile Liquid
Introduction: Given the mass of vapor at conditions of known pressure volume, and temperature, one should be able to determine the molar mass of the vapor. Mathematically, The Ideal Gas Law relates the quantities of pressure (P in atm), volume (V in liters), temperature (T in Kelvin), and quantity of gas (n in moles). Using the expression PV = nRT, where R is the ideal gas constant (0.0821 L atm/mole K), one can determine the quantity of gas under given conditions of pressure, volume, and temperature.
In this experiment, an unknown volatile liquid is heated in a boiling water bath and is vaporized. The vapor forces air from the flask through a tiny pin-hole

Factors that Influence Human Comfort
Temperature: Temperature is the measure of how much heat energy is in the air inside a room or building. In a building we usually say temperature to mean the air in the room, but it can be the temperature of the walls or other materials. The temperature of the air varies depending on how much heat energy it contains, and we can add heat energy to the air and raise the temperature using a heat source such as a radiator or an electric fire. The air temperature inside of a building will change depending on the temperature outside the building and the k-values of the materials used to build the walls and insulation. K-values are the values that all materials

Does temperature affect the rate of diffusion/osmosis?
The rate of diffusion can differ greatly due to the temperature of which something is diffusing from. Diffusion is the process of something being spread or dispersed. The life of cells depends on the dispersion or movement of chemicals throughout the cell. During the process of diffusion, substances move from a level of high concentration to levels of lower concentrations. Nutrients will enter the cells which will push out the materials that are not needed for the cell to live. The particles will transport from outside of the cell to

Jet streams are relatively narrow corridors or very strong winds within the atmosphere. The most prominent jet stream is located directly above the polar front in the upper troposphere between the mid-latitude and the polar troposphere. Because of its close association with the polar front this jet stream is known as the polar front jet stream (Williams).The polar jet stream is not well defined around the globe. However where surface temperature gradients are steep, where the polar front is well defined, jet stream winds are stronger. These segments of strong winds are known as jet streak.

A receptive field is an area where a receptor is sensitive to a stimulus (Ramachandran 1993). A sensation is the response that a subject would feel from the stimulus. A prolonged sensation can cause an adaptation in the body, such as the skin for changes in temperature (Benzinger 1959). Adaptation is a mechanism of the body to stop responding to a prolonged stimulus (Meyer et al. 2001).Looking at the skin specifically, many receptors join to regulate the homeostasis of the body.

Title: Paper on Water Cup Inversion Experiment
Testable Question: Does the volume of water affect the time for paper to drop from cup?
Hypothesis: As the volume of water increases, the time for the paper to fall off the cup stays the same.
Experimental Design: Different volumes of room temperature water will be poured 9 similar cups, starting with 10 mL and increasing by 10 mL each time. A piece of paper will be placed on top of the cup and the cup will be inverted.
Independent Variable: Volume of Water (mL)
Dependent Variable: Volume of cup (mL)
Rim diameter of cup (cm)

heating or air conditioning in the slaughterhouse. This made the slaughterhouse an even more excruciating working environment. “One bitter morning in February the little boy who worked at the lard-machine with Stanislovas came about an hour late, and screaming with pain. They unwrapped him, and a man vigorously rubbing his ears; and as they were frozen stiff, it took only two or three rubs to break them short off” (85). This quote describes the winter time in Chicago, and how the working conditions were almost unbearable for the workers. The temperature gave the workers even more ways to injure themselves. Often times men would suffer frostbite. The temperature was so cold in the

could have affected the
stream in any way.
2. Then we took water temperature, average width and average depth. Using the
thermometer/tape measurer both 3 times and getting the average. Using the measurng
tape in 3 different places. We also took the average velocity of the river.
3. Then we took the chemical measurmentsof the river. pH, dissolved oxygen, tempterature,
number of nitrates, phosphates and turbidity.
4. We then took samples of leaves and biomass in the river to find macroinvertebrates. We
would find these creatures and organize them in ice trays. Then we would classify them
in 1 of the 3 groups that determined how resistant to pollution they were.
