Water is very important in life. It is used for drinking, for washing hands, for cooking, for watering plants and many more. It is the most important element of all. But people are not 100% sure of its purity. It might be contaminated or undrinkable. So, there are those people who wanted to study its components. This can be done through water analysis.
In determining the quantities of the various chemicals present in the water, water analysis is needed (Zinni, Y. n.d.). According to the royal Australian chemical Institute, different techniques are used to measure distinct components: (Iodometric Method, Chloride Ion Concentration by Titration, and Colorimetric Phosphate Determination) and analysts need to follow strict procedures to obtain reliable results. Another method to be used for water analysis is Optical Measurements. This method involves measuring the intensity of a specific color in a solution which helps determine analyze concentration (Braybury, L. n.d.).
In this study water analysis will be used.
Statement of the problem:
What are the chemical compositions of milk-like water at Barangay Maragatas, Lupon, Davao Oriental?
Objective of the study:
The main objective of this study is to determine the chemicals that are present in the milk-like water at Barangay Maragatas, Lupon, Davao Oriental.
Background of the study:
A person can live about a month without food, but only about a week without water. If a human does not absorb enough water dehydration is the result.
Scope and Limitation:
The study focuses only in the milk-like wwateer at Barangay Maragatas, Lupon, Davao Oriental.
