Gold Fish Lab Report

This experiment was designed to identify the effect of cold-water temperatures on the respiration rate of goldfish. The respiration rates helped to identify the goldfish as being ectotherms or endotherms. Organisms exchange gases with their environment through a process called respiration or breathing. Aerobic respiration, also known as aerobic metabolism, occurs when oxygen is taken into the body and sent to all its cells; the oxygen is then used to break down food for energy (White and Campo 2008). Respiration…

Ecology Mock Experiment

Due to their large size oak trees become shelters and nesting sites to very many wildlife species, so if one were to remove or decrease availability of these oak trees then one might expect the abundance of the animals that use oak trees as a home would decline as well. In this experiment, we will be testing whether or not the availability of oak trees in an environment will affect the distribution and abundance of robins. The hypothesis of the…

negative Commercial Influences on Scientific Research

Nowadays, it’s a trend that almost everything is related to the commerce, and so do the scientific research, because the society would like to value the research results. To some extend, scientific research is not only a pure research in the labs or universities, but also a business sometimes. As a result, the commercial influences on the scientific research are so obvious that change the ways that researchers do or the universities behave. Among these effects, negative commercial influences have…

Experiments

What essential characteristics distinguish a true experiment from other research designs? What ethical problems do you see in conducting experiments with humans? “Experiments are studies involving intervention by the researcher beyond that required for measurement. The usual intervention is to manipulate some variable in a setting and observe how it affects the subjects being studied (e.g., people or physical entities). The researcher manipulates the independent or explanatory variable and then observes whether the hypothesized dependent variable is affected by the…

Project Design Plan

This experiment is to test the theory that the temperature of water affects the duration of time it takes to water to reach freezing? Hot water freezing faster than cold has been observed for many centuries. The earliest known reference to this effect is by Aristotle, who wrote: “The fact that water has previously been warmed contributes to its freezing quickly; for so it cools sooner. Hence many people, when they want to cool hot water quickly, begin by putting…

Science

Science to me is everything that surrounds us. It’s to discover information about this world we live in, study this information, and use it however we will; a process that has started long, long ago, and will continue in generations to come. Everything in our world that we use somehow or someway was made by science. It started with discovering something new; then study what it can be capable of. See where this new founded information can be fit into…

Does Temperature of Kernels Affect Popcorn Yield_

This experiment will attempt to determine if the temperature that popcorn kernels are stored at will affect the amount of un-popped kernels when using a hot air popcorn popper. Popcorn kernels contain moisture inside of them which, when heated, turns to steam and expands that in turn causes the kernel to explode. Popcorn.org states that loss of moisture content can cause less yield amounts when popping popcorn (popcorn.org, 2014). Literature Review Popcorn is a favorite snack for many. There have…

The Effect of Salt Concentration on Grass Growth

Our aim was to test the effect of different salinities on the growth of plants which what we did was measured different amounts of salt dissolved into 2 litres of water, watered the plant once with the salt water then for 9 days with pure ware. I found with my investigation that the less the salt, the more the growth of the plant. My aim was achieved by measuring the 5 fastest geminating (out of 20) and to measure the…

Contesting the _nature_ of Conformity_ What Milgram and Zimbardo’s Studies Really Show.

From the 1960’s to the 1970’s understanding of the psychology of tyranny is dominated by classical studies. Two such studies include Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment and Milgram’s research on obedience to authority. This research has revealed that many times people obey inactively and unthinkably to both roles that authorities offer as well as orders given to them. However, recently, this belief has recently been tested by empirical work informed by social identity theorizing. What this means is that individuals’ willingness…

The Stanford Prison Experiment

One of the most interesting studies made in history was led by Philip Zimbardo, a psychologist and a former classmate of Stanley Milgram (who was famous for his Milgram experiment). He sought to expand on Milgram’s experiment about impacts of situational variables on human behavior by simulating a prison environment, in which volunteering students were randomly assigned as prisoners or prison guards. Many controversies have been elicited from this experiment, and it was with a documentary of the experiment that…

Psychology Milgram Experiment

As a participant in Milgram’s (1963) study I would be tormented at the thought of inflicting pain to another person, I also would at least think about whether what I am doing is right and whether the experiment was really genuine or it was some macabre experiment bent on torturing other people. I would probably be one of the few in Milgram’s (1963) study who refused raising the voltage of electric shocks and maybe be among those who balked out…

Power Balance Bands Conclusion

The purpose of this experiment was to once and for all answer the question, “do the Power Balance Bands truly have an effect on a person’s balance strength and flexibility or is the whole thing a scam? ” The company claims that the these bracelets have a hologram in it and when the hologram comes in contact with your body’s energy field, it allows your body to interact with the natural, beneficial frequency stored within the hologram, resulting in improved…

Milgram’s Experiment

Milgram’s experiment provided a logical answer to these questions: ‘is it possible that people will do things because they are merely obeying the orders of a person in authority or ‘what will motivate a decent person to do unethical acts? ‘ The answer to these questions was very important during his time. During the World War II over 5 Million Jews were executed by the National Socialist Regime led by Adolf Hitler. Stanley Milgram, a Yale University Psychologist, theorized that…

Sensory Evaluation of Chesa Fruit Cookies

The concept of this study is to make use of healthy snack using chesa, a fruit often discarded by many most especially among children. The study was conducted to find out the sensory evaluation and proximate analysis of chesa fruit cookies. Specific objectives are: 1. To determine the level of acceptability of the chesa fruit cookies with the following treatments: T1- 50g of chesa fruit + basic ingredients, T2- 100g of chesa fruit + basic ingredients and T3- 150g of…

Scientific Method and Experiment

A) The scientific method consists of six different steps. The first step is to state the problem. Then you must gather information about your topic that you have chosen. Once you gathered your information you form an educated guess called a hypothesis. Then once you have drawn a conclusion you perform an experiment. Then during your experiment you should analyze the data. After you analyze you draw a conclusion if your Hypothesis is supported or is not supported. If it…
