SALT I believe that setting up a limit for salt intake could be benefial to ones health depending on the individuals daily salt consumption. The current recommended amount of sodium is set at 2,235mg per day which is about a teaspoon. Some of the benefits to reducing the amount is to prevent side effects such as elevated blood pressure, kidney damage, hypertension and water retention, which can also lead to unhealthy weight gain. Salt in the human body acts as an electrolyte, along with other electrolytes they all balance eachother out with water. If one enters the body in excess then the brain automatically lets the body know that it needs more water to balance out the effect leading up to water retention.
pH: Decrease indicates acidosis Urinalysis: Protein: Significant increase due to loss in urine: suggest renal dysfunction. Glomerular Filtration Rate: Significant decrease indicates reduced renal filtration; suggests renal failure. Bacteria: Presence suggests renal infection. Urinary Protein Concentration: Presence indicates renal dysfunction. Red Blood Analysis: Presence indicates renal dysfunction.
Alcohol and Caffeine vs. Daphnia heart rate Abstract This experiment was performed to observe the effects of alcohol and caffeine on the heart rate of a Daphnia magna. There was a control group used along with the alcohol and caffeine to make sure we got accurate results. It was predicted that the increasing concentrations of alcohol would decrease heart rate and the increasing concentrations of caffeine would increase heart rate, based on pervious experiments. The results of this experiment proved the predictions to be valid and helped to make educated decisions about the effects of alcohol and caffeine in any living organism. Introduction Caffeine is a stimulant and diuretic.
When the body detects stress, the SNS is activated which leads to raised heart rate, which leads to higher blood pressure which can lead to Chronic Heart Disease, heart attack, stroke etc. The Beta Blocker is taken then and it acts by reducing activity of adrenaline and noradrenaline and also binds to the receptors of the heart and other areas of the body stimulated by arousal. As a result of blocking these receptors, it is therefore harder to stimulate them and so the heart beat is slowed, and therefore lower blood pressure. A strength of drug treatment is that they are proven to be affective, for example Kahn et al tested 250 participants over 8 weeks, and found that BZs were better than a placebo. The drugs are also very quick and easy to use, and do not require extra effort or stress that could be incurred using other, longer methods of stress management.
In conclusion, the data from the goldfish respiration lab supports my hypothesis. My hypothesis was that if I were to put the goldfish in the 27OC water then the goldfish will breathe faster because the water is hotter and the molecules move further apart. Therefore, the fish will have to take more breaths. In 10OC water, the goldfish will take fewer breaths because in colder water the molecules move slower and they are closer together. As a result, it will have to take fewer breaths.
Fifteen minutes of aerobic exercise is defined as getting on a treadmill at a slow 4 miles an hour walk for fifteen minutes to increase the heart rate. Based on my hypothesis, I will create an experiment to determine if my hypothesis was correct or not. To begin, I would number and gain consent from 400 volunteers (200 male and 200 female) and randomly assign them into four groups using a random number generator. There will be no more than 50 males and 50 females per group to ensure a block against
Part E – Deriving a solubility curve Aim: To be able to calculate the solubility of the compound in a certain amount of water as the temperature increases or decreases. Hypothesis: As the water increases, the solubility decreases and the substance’ saturation would get lower. And as the volume increases, the substance won’t separate to the water anymore which makes it dissolved forever without getting crystallized when the water cools down. Apparatus & Method: [refer to the sheet p. 64] Result: Temperature | Volume [ml] | Solubility [g/100g] | 65 ̊ C | 5 ml | 130.44 g | 46 ̊ C | 8 ml | 81.525 g | 39 ̊ C | 11 ml | 59.29 g | 28 ̊ C | 14 ml | 46.586 g | 22 ̊ C | 17 ml | 38.36 g | 16 ̊ C | 20 ml | 32.61 g | 12 ̊ C | 23 ml | 28.35 g | 12 ̊ C | 26 ml | 25.08 g | The solubility was calculated with the formula of: Solubility=6.522gml of waterx 100 The solubility of Potassium Nitrate is directly affected by the temperature of the solution. As the temperature of the solution rises, the solubility of Potassium Nitrate increases.
Puropose The purpose of this experiment is to see whether breaking the alka- seltzer into smaller pieces will decrease the time of making the canister cap pop. Hypothesis My theory about this experiment is that the more we break the reactant which in this case is the alka- seltzer into smaller pieces and then putting it to water will decrease the time it takes to pop the canister cap. This is because of the more we break something into smaller pieces the surface area increases causing more molecules to become available for collision. Apparatus/ * Digital weight * Canister * Scoopula Materials * Alka- seltzer * 10 ml Water * Stop watch Procedure 1.) Get all the materials and apparatus u need.
It just helps stable moods and make you feel more like yourself. However, this medication causes increased glucose levels, increase blood lipids and cause a person to gain weight. All of these can affect how you control your diabetes. This list of prescription drugs in not to be a comprehensive one but these are probably the most commonly prescribed medications altering blood glucose levels. One thing I’d like to add is about inhaled medications.
The sodium in the drink helps maintain body fluids unlike other fluids such as water and caffeinated beverages that can promote water loss through increased urination. f. Provides carbohydrates to working muscles iv. Carbohydrates are in two forms: sucrose and glucose-fructose 1. Allows to work harder and longer and feel better g. Encourages you to drink more v. Sodium and glucose in Gatorade stimulate fluid consumption in the body which encourages your body to drink until it is rehydrated 3. When a sport drink is needed h. An individual will burn 200-500 calories during a standard workout that is 30 minutes long.
