  • Pros And Cons Of Ocean Acidification

    1067 Words  | 5 Pages

    action about Ocean Acidification? What is your PH level? You don’t know? Well it should be around 7.35 to 7.45 according to PH stands for power of hydrogen. PH level is a measurement of the hydrogen ion concentration in the body. Now imagine you’re peeling an orange with a cut on your finger. When the juice from the orange comes into contact with your cut, it sends a burning feeling to your brain. This occurs because an orange has a PH level of around 2-3 which is acidic burning unprotected

    with a Pygmy Gourami and regretted the decision. The Gourami harassed my shrimp and probably caused the death of two of the five. Endler’s Livebearers, however, coexisted peacefully with the shrimp. Different species have different temperature and pH tolerances, but some of them, like the Amano shrimp, tolerate cool water very well. The

  • The Negative Effects Of Ocean Acidification

    1003 Words  | 5 Pages

    Labeled as one of the top environmental issues today, ocean acidification has been found to be linked to a decrease in ocean pH levels, negative impacts on calcifying species of marine organisms, and the rise in temperature of the ocean. Furthermore, ocean acidification occurs when the carbon dioxide found naturally within the environment, as well as anthropogenically released, is absorbed into the ocean and then chemically reacts to the saltwater to create carbonic acid (H2CO3) which also leads

  • How Technology Improves Our Lives

    water, they do not re-form their bonds because the chloride ion acts as a noble gas in this case, as it has completed its vacant electron orbitals. The hydrogen ions then are left to react with the water molecules to form hydronium ions which lower the pH of the entire system. It is because chlorine is a weak conjugate base as a chloride ion that it supports its hydrogen ion complement in forming a strong acid. Consequently, the dissociation of hydrochloric acid occurs only in direction, and its reaction

  • Advantages And Disadvantages Of Chitosan

    2579 Words  | 11 Pages

    Chitosan is a biodegradable material whose characteristics and several applications in the biomaterials field can be found in more detail in section of Chapter 1. In Chapter 5, we used water soluble chitosan (with the commercial name PROTASAN UP CL 213) as received from the supplier (Novamatrix, Norway). PROTASAN UP CL 213 is based on a chitosan with 75-90% of deacetylation. It is in the form of a cationic polymer with a highly purified and well-characterized water-soluble chloride salt.

    lobsters. Carbonic Acid has also been proven to be a leading cause of reproductive disorders in some fish species. On the pH scale, substances are rated from 0 to 14. The lower numbers of the scale, such as those with pH levels of five or under, are considered to be more acidic. Conversely, the higher numbers on the scale such as numbers nine or higher, are considered to be more basic. A pH level of seven is perceived as neutral. Examples of substances believed to be more acidic include: (in order from most

  • An Investigation Into the Effects of Temperature on Enzyme Action

    An investigation into the effects of temperature on enzyme action An enzyme is a biological catalyst that speeds up the rate of reaction in certain biological functions. They play a vital role in many aspects of human physiology and are necessary for the functioning of a number of systems, for example in the digestive system to help to break down food. All enzymes have a unique active site that can fit on to a particular molecular arrangement on a target substrate; a substance e.g. carbohydrate
