The Effect of Concentrations of Starch and Sugar Solutions on Synthetic Semi-
By: Jamie Hardy
Question: Is dialysis tubing selectively permeable?
Hypothesis: If one has dialysis tubing, which is dipped in water, filled with
Gatorade and starch and is left for 15 minutes, the sugar in the Gatorade will
exit the dialysis and into the water. So the dialysis is semi-permeable.
Materials: 16 cm dialysis tubing beaker cylinder test tubes transfer pipettes
Gatorade Starch solution 10 g/1000 ml water Benedict's Solution Iodine
Solution string ring stand water bath boiling chips goggles
Scientific Method: 1. Each group will make up a Gatorade solution as follows:
Group 1 1.0 M 3.4 g/10 ml
Group 2 0.5 M 1.7 g/10 ml
Group 3 0.5 M 1.7 g/10 ml
Group 4 0.2 M 0.7 g/10 ml
Group 5 0.2 M 0.7 g/10 ml
NB: Tare the balance.
Tare the balance with a test tube inside a beaker.
Add the amount to the tube.
Vortex, gradually turning the speed up.
Heat in a water bath.
Cool the tube. 2. Wet the dialysis tubing with the beaker of distilled
water. 3. Twist one end of the tubing. 4. Fold the twisted end over on itself. 5.
Tie a tight knot. Leave the extra string. 6. Insert the transfer pipette (cut
off top) about one third of the way into the tubing. 7. Tie a knot securely
around the transfer pipette. Leave the extra string. 8. Add two transfer
pipettes (two squirts) of the Gatorade solution to the tubing. 9. Add two
transfer pipettes (two squirts) of the starch solution to the tubing. 10. If you
spilled any solutions while transferring, carefully rinse the tubing. 11. Fill
the cylinder with distilled water to about 2.54 cm from the top. 12. Place the
tubing into the cylinder of water. 13. Rest the apparatus against the ring stand.
14. Note the height of the water in the tube. 15. Record the time the tube was
placed into the cylinder (it will stay for about 20 minutes)
Time tubing was placed into cylinder: 1:15.00 p.m.
Time tubing was taken out of cylinder: 1:31.12.87 16. Note any changes
in the height of the water in the transfer pipette.
The height of the water in the transfer pipette was that it did not
change. Observations and Data: Tests:
Positive Negative Test for starch and Iodine Solution
blue black clear yellow Test for Gatorade and Benedict's Solution
orange/green clear blue 17. Using transfer pipettes and dry
test tubes, test the solution that has been holding the tubing for Gatorade and
Test each separately.
Run a control for each.
Test each of the original solutions with Benedict's and Iodine solutions.
18. Record Observations:
When starch is added to Iodine Solution it turns clear yellow and when
Gatorade and Benedict's Solution are mixed it turns orange. The Gatorade
solution smells like burnt Gatorade and the starch solution smells like a very
dull baby powder. 19. Test a known glucose solution with Benedict's and Iodine
solutions. 20. Record observations:
The color of the glucose did not change when mixed with Benedict's and
Iodine Solutions. The color did get greyer though.
In the observations unit of the lab report it explains that the test on
starch added to Iodine Solution and Gatorade added to Benedict's Solution the
Gatorade solution was a thick orange color and the starch solution was a very
clear yellow. The Gatorade Solution smelled like something was burnt and placed
in the solution and the starch solution smelled like a very dull baby powder.
When the Gatorade solution was placed over the flame the solution bubbled to the
top of the test tube and almost went over.
My hypothesis, "If one has dialysis tubing, which is dipped in water,
filled with Gatorade and starch and is left for 15 minutes, the sugar in the
Gatorade will exit the dialysis and into the water. So the dialysis is semi-
-permeable.", was proven correct. The tubing is semi-permeable.

They plan to do this by identifying the DNA sequence of an abnormal gene in which a disease originates
PhotosynthesisPhotosynthesis Matt Lazar 5/13/96 8th Hr. When you and me eat, we find our food. When plants eat, they make their own food and energy. They make their food and energy through a process called photosynthesis. Through photosynthesis oxygen is also produced. Photosynthesis is a process in which green plants synthesize carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water....The reverse of this reaction provides energy for plants, for animals that eat plants, for animals that eat animals that eat plants for
BiologyBiology 1. The virus is made up of five parts and is in the size range of 10 nm-300 nm in diameter. The first is the coat made up of protein that protects the virus to a point. Next is the head that contains the genetic material for the virus. The genetic material for a virus is DNA. The two other parts are the tail sheath and the tail fibers that are used for odd jobs. I believe that a virus is not considered to be a living creature due to the fact it is a parasitic reproducer. To me it is just

Premature ChildbirthPremature Childbirth Athina Shelby Block A January 13,1999 This occurrence is commonly considered an idiopathic condition, however spontaneous pre-term labor always has a cause when defined as a clinical event. Says Emanuuel P. Gaziano, MD. The failure to recognize this prevents understanding of the symptom and delays effective diagnosis, prevention, and treatment. The following information focuses on the risk factors that point towards the possibility of pre-term labor. With careful pre-natal

Total Calcium contents of surface soils are very low compared to its relative content in the earth’s crust and compared to the contents of most of the other major elements that make up the soil. Calcium is a light, malleable, silver-white metal. Calcium is not found in a free, uncombined state in nature becau
HEADACHESHEADACHES Everybody in the world has at least experienced what is known as a headache. The effect of a headache is felt in the head and around the eyes and sometimes in the jaw. Not many people know how the pain is caused or why headaches occur in the first place. Headaches can just come and go with out really any harm done, but one should be cautious of headaches they can be a symptom of something much worse going on with your body. This is very rare though but it is safe to always check out yo
CancerCancer I. Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells. If the spread of these abnormal cells is not controlled, cancer can cause death. Most cancers take the form of tumors, although not all tumors are cancers. A tumor is simply a mass of new tissue that serves no physiological purpose. It can be benign, like a wart, or malignant, like cancer. Benign tumors are made up of cells similar to the surrounding normal cells and are enclosed in a membrane that
TelecommunicationTelecommunication 1. Introduction Computer and telephone networks inflict a gigantic impact on today\'s society. From letting you call John in Calgary to letting you make a withdraw at your friendly ATM machine they control the flow of information. But today\'s complicated and expensive networks did not start out big and complicated but rather as a wire and two terminals back in 1844. From these simple networks to the communication giants of today we will look at the evolution of the network and
The Effects of Antibiotics on Bacterial GrowthThe Effects of Antibiotics on Bacterial Growth Biology II 1996 Bacteria are the most common and ancient microorganisms on earth. Most bacteria are microscopic, measuring 1 micron in length. However, colonies of bacteria grown in a laboratory petri dish can be seen with the unaided eye. There are many divisions and classifications of bacteria that assist in identifying them. The first two types of bacteria are archaebacteria and eubacteria. Both groups have common ancestors dating to more than 3

The Case For and Against Artificial Intelligence Artificial intelligence has been the subject of many bad 80\'s movies and countless science fiction novels. But what happens when we seriously consider the question of computers that think. Is it possible for computers to have complex thoughts, and even emotions, like homo sapien? This paper will seek to answer that question and also look at what attempts are being made to make artificial intelligence (hereafter called AI) a
CloningCloning Cloning, the process of “Manipulating a cell from an animal so that it grows into an exact duplicate of that animal is the forbidden fruit of biology.” (Begley 54). The word “clone”, derived from the Greek word “Klon”, meaning twig or slip, refers to asexual reproduction. Also known as vegetative reproduction. Cloning became known to the public about 30 years ago. This idea of cloning about his time resulted in an experiment of the successful asexual reproduction. This experiment took pl
Myasthenia GravisMyasthenia Gravis In 1890, German medical professor Wilhelm Erb and other physicians had been observing several cases of a neuromuscular disease that they believed was affecting how nerve impulses were transmitted to muscle at the neuromuscular junction. The patient’s experienced a grave muscular weakness and Wilhelm named it myasthenia gravis. Through further research, the physicians discovered whether it affected the eye muscles first, or created difficulty in talking, chewing and swallowing,
AIDS, Virus of the Modern WorldAIDS, Virus of the Modern World The first case ever diagnosed with the virus now known as AIDS was reported in 1979 in New York. By the middle of 1981, unusual immune system failure among gay men were flourishing in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) named the Disease GRID (GayRelated Immune Deficiency) because it was mainly found among homosexual men. It first appeared to be a lifestyleassociated illness, linked to excessive stress to the immune system. Scientists believ
CloningCloning Research in the field of embryology and genetics has exploded over the past decade. New advances about in vitro fertilization and genetic screening are leading to new procedures in which human embryo cloning will be possible in the near future. Human cloning, however, brings up many new ethical questions that will need to be addressed by the scientific community and the public before these advances can reach their full potential. Scientific advances bring social changes that many people

AidsAids Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), suppresses the immune system related to infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). A person infected with HIV gradually loses immune function along with certain immune cells called CD4 T-lymphocytes or CD4 T-cells, causing the infected person to become vulnerable to pneumonia, fungus infections, and other common ailments. With the loss of immune function, a clinical syndrome (a group of various illnesses that together characterize a di

The Viruses has many different strains including Marburg, Ebola Zaire, Reston and Sudan, each named after the location of their first clinical case. They each cause different symptoms and different mortality rates. Non the less, the collection of Ebola viruses at the present, pose a serious health threat to people in undeveloped countries and potent
