P3: Compare different research methodologies for health and social care. In this I will be talking about and comparing different types of research methodology in Health and Social Care. The subject of research. Research follows either the scientific or social scientific methodology. The Scientific research method usually involves research carried in laboratories where information can be measuring number values and units.
Experiment#2 “Separating the Components of a Ternary Mixture” By Mohammad Bazargan Lab partners: Aaron Radtke, Kevin Campbell, Austin Gilchrist Instructor: Professor Mundell Section #: 12 Sep/14/2011 Abstract In this laboratory, we used physical and chemical properties to separate the components of a ternary (three substances) mixture. We also determine the percentage of each substance in the mixture. The percentages are the following,38.2% NaCl, 40.45% SiO2, and 72.84% CaCO3.The mentioned substances were all separated using methods such as filtration, evaporation and reaction with other chemicals which will be explained throughout this report. Intro Mixtures are \ physical combinations of two or more substances where each substance keeps its own chemical identity. Mixtures can be classified as either homogeneous or heterogeneous.
Laboratory Techniques and Measurements Purpose: The purpose of this experiment is to learn common techniques used in the lab and how to properly find measurements. Procedure: First, I found the length in mm, cm and m for a CD, Key, spoon, and fork. Second, I found temperatures in °C, °F, and K of 100-mL of water. Third, I found the mass of various everyday objects such as coins, a key, and a pen. Fourth, I found the volume and density of water and isopropyl alcohol.
Once you have calculated the amount of each reactant, proceed to the lab table and retrieve the following equipment: two graduated cylinders, two beakers, two flasks, funnel, and filter paper. Take the mass of the filter paper. Pour the right amount of each reactant, into the two beakers. From
The monochromator separates the wavelengths of light and focuses each of them onto the photodetector sequentially. 13. State the purpose, use, operation, calibration, and maintenance for pH/blood gas analyzer (include diagram and description of a pH glass electrode). * The purpose of the PH and blood gas analyzer is to measures blood pH (acid-base balance) of the blood. The PH/blood gas monitor is uses to gives accurate pH, pC02and po2 determination on the blood sample or other body fluids.
Reaction of Iron Filings with an Aqueous Solution of Copper (II) Sulfate Purpose: There were many reasons that we conducted this reaction as a lab. The main objective of the lab was to observe a reaction of Iron and Copper (II) Sulfate. This lab presented a good opportunity to work with numbers using moles and Stoichiometry. This lab was also good for practice using Bunsen burners, glass, and handling hot objects. Lastly, we got to witness and test the Law of Conservation of Mass through the reaction in this experiment.
These non-animal methods replace those archaic animal tests, and take less time to complete. It' shocking that individuals are not informed that non-animal experimentation methods are applicable to human life. The physiological chip is an amazing invention that contains cell compartments that are eligible to test the effects of drugs. Barnard (2007) describes the ability of the chip to “mimic the complex functions of the human body” (p.19). If a simple chip has the power to mimic the functions of the human body, then it is a huge resource to research.
Considering the fact that substances have differences, the specific heat varies depending on what substance is being heated. Calorimetry is performed with a calorimeter. These can be intricate and expensive devices, but in this lab, two Styrofoam cups are used. The purpose of this experiment is to calculate the specific heat of a foreign metal. To do this, the metal will be heated, and then put into water to determine the heat transferred.
Specialised laboratory Within this task I will describe what is required in a specialised laboratory and how these types of equipment will affect the progression of the lab in order for it to work to the best potential. This will explain the types of equipment will fit into this laboratory. Medical Laboratory This is a laboratory which tests are done on clinical specimens in order to get information about the health of a patient as pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. Within this laboratory there are many types of equipment which are used like test tubes, a folin-Wu tube which is used for blood glucose determination, glass slides which are used with microscopes, a Petri dish, glass beakers, glass flasks, Pasteur pipette which is used for aspiration and addition of reagents, graduated pipettes which is again used to aspiration and addition of reagents but it if also it is often of minuscule amounts of the material where it is mainly used in colorimetry. They also use syringes and needles, disposable gloves, tourniquet which is used to cause an artificial venous stasis by applying pressure through this rubber tube.
