Investigating the Permeability of Dialysis Tubing Using Potassium Iodine in an Aqueous Starch Solution.

Biology 1492 Section 202
Introduction: In order to determine whether potassium iodine or starch will move across a semipermeable artificial membrane. We used a piece of dialysis tubing to serve as the artificial semipermeable membrane, the tubing allows some molecules or ions to pass through, but not others, the rate at which it will pass through depended on the temperature of the solutions used. The expected results were that when the potassium iodine combined with the starch it would turn the solution a dark purple/black color. In previous tests the color of the solution containing starch along with potassium iodine were determined to be true. The results we possible because of osmosis when the water combined with the potassium iodine had the ability to pass through the semipermeable membrane causing the two solutions to combine.
Materials Used:
* 1 piece of dialysis tubing (wet)
* 2 Clamps
* 1 250 mL beaker
* 1% soluble starch solution
* 20 drops of potassium iodine reagent
* 1 Disposable pipette
Methods: First we obtained all the materials needed and set up the experiment. We then filled a 250mL glass beaker with a 125mL of deionized water. Clamped one end of an approximately 6 inch dialysis tube, using the disposable pipette we opened the dialysis tube, then placed 59.8 degree Celsius 1% soluble starch solution inside tubing still using a disposable pipette until tube was approximately half way filled then clamped closed. Rinsed the tube thoroughly with deionized water, and placed tubing into beaker with deionized water and placed twenty drops of potassium iodine into the water. We lightly agitated contents of beaker until the potassium iodine was evenly dispersed. Finally we recorded the temperature of the beaker…...

Vbf Tubing

...Executive Summary Problem Verenigde Buizen Fabrieken (VBF), a tubing manufacturer, is faced with inventory and plant capacity concerns.  VBF currently has high inventories and low inventory turnover.  We have found a way to potentially shrink inventories and decrease plant costs substantially by changing the production cycle times using a well-known production model. Growth in the thick-walled tubing market is also making VBF question its plant capacity requirements. We also address a number of other issues that could help VBF efficiency throughout the plant. Analysis We analyzed VBF production using the economic order quantity model (EOQ) for shared facilities and found a lower cost production cycle schedule that we believe will greatly help VBF to be more responsive to customer needs, reduce inventories and working capital, as well as increase efficiency within the plant.  We focus on the EOQ model and its implications for the firm. Exhibit 3A shows the spreadsheet calculations we used to arrive at the shared facility economic order quantity that we are recommending. We compiled costs associated with setting up for products and for carrying the required level of inventory. Setup costs were given as $800 per hour and accounted for the loss in contribution due to changeovers. The cost of carrying inventory was represented as a 24% variable cost. It is given that tubing costs $400 per metric ton; therefore, we use $96 ($400/ton*24%) per ton per year as our...

Using Correlation Analysis

...What is the purpose of using correlation analysis? How might correlation analysis be used in business decisions or in strategy formulation and implementation? Provide an example Correlation is a synonym that describes how someone or something is similar. It can also be used to illustrate instances of similarity among situations, people, or things that are otherwise different in nature to the other situations, people, or things. Businesses can effectively use correlation analysis to determine what common factors impact undesirable outcomes so that the managers are able to make changes, and the process also helps in determining the factors that impact desirable outcomes so that managers can take note of what to continue doing. Correlation analysis basically allows those evaluating various aspects of the business to make connections by analyzing cause and effect of various outcomes. It can be used in business decisions or in strategy formulation and implementation if a business were to use it effectively.Take an example of a small business. that determined that, over the course of the last six years, the business' revenue shot up over 40% each year when the business invested in professional, targeted marketing services versus the other three years in which the business lost money or broke even when the business owner whose skill set is in construction took on the task of building the company's marketing campaign by experimenting and using new marketing software and......

Using Roles

...Using Roles March 21, 2013 CMGT/430 Using Roles The control of user access to a network is becoming one of the most important factors in maintaining a secure network and ensuring that the integrity of a company’s important data remains intact. Enterprise owners and upper-level management are relentlessly recognizing risks and taking the correct mitigation steps needed to maintain a secure business environment. Businesses have sensitive information that can be accessed by the owners and management, but all of the data does not need to be accessed by every employee, client, or associate of the company (Stallings & Brown, 2012). Businesses are implementing access control systems to ensure that every user that has access to the network only has access to the information, applications, documents, or areas of the network that he or she needs to perform the respective responsibilities that the job duty requires. Therefore, these access control systems also restrict access to the resources that are not relevant to the employee, client, or associate’s duties or needs (Stallings & Brown, 2012). The separation of duties within a business is one of the important factors of access control and can sometimes be the most difficult to achieve. The separation of duties means that no individual in the company can have control over more than one operation or transaction at a time, so that it will be more difficult for a biased occasion to occur between two or more people.

Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore. {arun837, gowtham035, iysh16, kaushikveluru, tamarai1990, vasudha.1990}@gmail.com Abstract Networking field is looking forward for improved and efficient methods in channel utilization. For some text, data recovery becomes indispensable because of importance of data it holds. Therefore, a lossless decomposition algorithm which is independent of the nature and pattern of text is today’s top concern. Efficiency of algorithms used today varies greatly depending on the nature of text. Such algorithms need some characters to be frequently appearing in the text and randomness in the characters present distorts the consistency to a large extent. This paper brings in the idea of using an art form called ambigram to compress text with consistency in the efficiency of the compression. Keywords Ambigrams, lossless compression, steganography, stego key, embedded algorithms, encryption. 1. Introduction When so many algorithms are available for compressing text, they hamper the readability of the text once compressed. Compressing the text using ambigrams also reduces the text to nearly 50% of its size. When most of the other compressing techniques depend on the nature of the text to be compressed, this technique is independent of the type of the text and requires...

Using Perceptual Maps

...Using Perceptual Maps MKT/421 4/27/2014 Marc Mcclintock Using Perceptual Maps Thorr Motorcycles is a company that manufactures 200,000 motorcycles a year. It’s a very high end brand and known for its quality products including T-shirts, shoes, leather goods, toys, and other consumer items. In this economy were things are currently changing Thorr is affected by a growing industry, but sales of its high-end motor cycle is decreasing. The reason for this loss of market share is that the target customers of its high end 2 wheeler is growing older, and younger people do not identify with the brand image of Thorr. The Situation CruiserThorr needed a makeover to appeal to a younger customer and increase sales. The older bikes that are utilized by existing consumers are more expensive and not selling due to the target market getting old. The first step in the simulation is to determine the market position of The Cruiser Thorr using a perceptual map. There are four parameters that must be selected in the simulation, and I chose Lifestyle Image, Coolness, quality engineering and Product Uniqueness. It appears that the size of the polygon is irrelevant because the most accurate choices were lifestyle image, service offerings, quality engineering, and price. My logic is the larger the polygon the bigger the market share. The logic according to the simulation is that the service is a way to keep existing customers pleased, and quality engineering is a necessity for a...

Membrane Permeability

...The effect of temperature on membrane permeability in beetroots Temperature ±1 (oC) | Absorption ±0.001 and observations | 30 | .886Water stained purple halfway through the test tube | 40 | .238Beetroot turned yellow-orange, water also stained yellow-orange | 50 | .140Water stained dark purple | 60 | .109Water stained lighter purple than 50C, beetroot lost color slightly and floating in middle of water | 70 | .056Water stained red-orange especially near the bottom, beetroot lost color almost completely, beetroot floating near top of water | 80 | .010Water stained light pink, beetroot lost all color and is floating at top of water | 100 | .030Water stained light pink (similar to 30C) and beetroot lost color and is floating at top of water | Conclusion: Our results support that as the temperature increased, the permeability of the beetroot also increased, due to destruction of the membrane. We can see this through the curve on our graph; our readings from the colourimeter showed that light absorption decreased as the temperature increased, meaning that the solution was more concentrated due to more of the pigmented substance from the beetroot vacuole leaking through the destroyed beetroot membrane. This was also evident through observation of the different solutions of water (as the temperature of water increased, the extent of pigmentation of the water increased). For 20oC, we obtained a reading of .886, which decreased to .238 by 40oC, and eventually to...

Using Information

... immediately, daily or at most a week or month. Results of operational work will usually be passed upwards to let the tactical planners evaluate their plans. Time Historic information This is information gathered and stored over a period of time. It allows decision makers to draw comparisons between previous and present activities. Historic information can be used to identify trends over a period of time. Data and information Present This is information created from activities during the current work¬-window (day, week or month). In real-time systems this information would be created instantly from the data gathered (for example, the temperature in a nuclear power plant turbine), giving accurate and up-to-date information. Future This is information that is created using present and historic information to try to predict the future activities, trends and events relating to the operation of an organisation. An example would be sales figures for a company: if the sales figures are up 10% from those recorded this time last year it might be anticipated that next month’s sales figures will also be up by 10%. Frequency of information Continuous This is information created from data gathered several times a second. It is the type of information created by a real-time system.

Soilmech Permeability

...Introduction Permeability is the property of soil that permits the passage of water under a gradient of force. It characterizes the ability of porous media to be permeated, and is independent of the properties of the permeating liquid. During permeability test on a sample of soil, the researchers will able to get hydraulic gradient, discharge velocity, flow rate, seepage velocity, hydraulic conductivity, absolute permeability, transmissibility of soil stratum. Hydraulic gradient is the slope of water table. It is the change in hydraulic head inversely proportional to the change in distance. Discharge velocity is the coefficient of permeability directly proportional to hydraulic conductivity. Flow rate is the cross-sectional area directly proportional to velocity. Seepage velocity is how fast the flow of water in an empty spaces at soil. It is the discharge velocity inversely proportional to porosity. Researchers can get hydraulic conductivity through laboratory test constant head test. It is also known as coefficient of permeability. Every range of coefficient of permeability is equivalent to specific type of soil. Absolute permeability is the coefficient of permeability directly proportional to viscosity of fluid over unit weight of water. And transmissibility of soil stratum is the average coefficient of permeability of soil stratum directly proportional to thickness of aquifers Abstract In this topic, the importance of permeability in earth science is to determine......

Using Word Processing Tools

...Check Point Using Word Processing Tools As some one who uses Microsoft word on a daily basis I felt as if I was very well aware of its capabilities, but after reading the provided material from this weeks readings I can say that there are a number of things that I was unaware of. For starters there are so many short cut keys that I was unaware of such as selecting ctrl + F in order to find a particular word in your document instantly. In addition the integrated screen shot feature that captures screen shot samples from the background of the word document. Another feature that I found most shocking was the ability to remove background images under the Pictures Tools / Format tab. Whenever I would want to edit a picture I would power up my complicated Photoshop software to accomplish such tasks, I did not know Microsoft word was capable of such complex editing. Another tool that I found interesting would the filter tool “artistic effects”. Be it that there are such apps like Instagram which allows you to do similar, it amazes me that Microsoft Word, a program that I would use primarily for documents is capable of such creative alterations. As I stated, I normally would use Microsoft word for my basics such as typing up a paper, letter, memo etc. But I never considered using Microsoft Office as software to create a full brochure or any graphic creation. It is clear now that exploring beyond just the basic tool commands and working with the more advanced features,......

Case Study: Vbf Tubing

...Introduction VBF Tubing is the largest steel producer in the Netherlands. VBF produces welded steel tubing plants in three of its plants. These tubes find application in various fields ranging from structural components to gas, steam & liquid transmission. The major concern for VBF is their low inventory ($ 4.5 million) turning rate. Process i. Raw material preparation: Flat rolled steel is used as raw material, which is wound into rolls, unwounded, and then the start of one coil is welded against the end of previous coil. Continuous steel strip is then fed to tube forming & welding operation. ii. Tube formation: Two basis sizes called as ‘Mother Tubes’of 4 & 3 inch diameter. 4 inches in diameter accounted for 90% production. 3 inch mother tube produced over a 5 day period, only 3 times a year because it required a major changeover. iii. Stretch-reduction: Vast majority of 4 inch tubes are stretched & reduced in SRM machine into smaller dia. (0.5-2.5 inch). There is a production loss of 10 days when 4 inches are being cut. Production rates are minimum for smaller dials. iv. Finishing operations: Cost of storage of semi-finished tube is $400/ton. Various operations performed in finishing include zinc plating, threading tube ends, and adding caps before shipping to the customer. Problem Statement i. The inventory turnover is very low in spite of increasing demand. Excess holding of 3000 tonnes of finished goods indicates major problems in the sales operations. ii...
