T. Aestivum Growth with Environmental Contaminate Ammonium Hydroxide
People use household cleaners such as ammonia hydroxide every day and are told that they are safe and diluted to a point that it will not cause any harm when exposed to these chemical. These household cleaners are disposed like water down drains which end up in the city’s rivers and lakes. The purpose of this experiment is to determine if the contaminate ammonium hydroxide has any environmental impact. Our hypothesis was that seeds subjected with more than .5ml of the environmental contaminate ammonium hydroxide will not show growth of the plant T. aestivum.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
In order to determine if seeds subjected with more then .5ml of the environmental contaminate ammonium hydroxide will not show growth of the plant T.aestivum, some items are needed. Some of the material are as follows; potting soil, ten soil pots of the same size and material, one hundred T. aestivum seeds, 500ml of water (50ml on each pot), a dropper, 10 ml of the household cleaner ammonium hydroxide, 10 labels, a 50ml beaker, marker and a green house. First we got ten soil pots and placed them in two rows of five pots (trial 1 and trail 2). Then we place a label on each of the potting soils. We used a marker and label the labels on the first row Plant A Tr1, Plant B Tr1, Plant C Tr1, Plant D Tr 1, and Control 1. Then on the labels on the second row we labeled them Plant A Tr2, Plant B Tr2, Plant C Tr2, Plant D Tr2, and Control 2.Then we filled each pot with about three-fourths of soil and leveled them off so that each pot was had the same amount of soil and was balance throughout the pot. Then we watered the soil to prevent seepage of the soil. Then we separated the one hundred T. aestivum seeds into groups of ten. Then we made ten .5 inch deep holes located throughout the soil pot for each individual soil pot. Then we placed ten of the T. aestivum seeds in these holes for each pot and...
