Algae Growth Condition

biodiesels is from sugar, vegetable oils and lignocellulosic biomass, microalgae are now known as the ‘third generation of biodiesel’. As many studies have told us that microalga is a promising organism for mass production of biomass and biofuel which are renewable and environmental friendly. Microalgae have a higher growth rate and productivity as compared to plants. Most microalga species are easily adaptable to climate changes and are not limited by seasonal culture, which also says that products of microalgae...

Pollution and Various Micro Organisms

Land and Soil Pollution: Land is the natural resource in which we get all our food. The upper surfaces of the land are full of fertility where various plants are grown. The richness of the soil depends on various micro­organisms. Among these micro-organisms various fungus etc. are harmful for plants weeds are also harmful for crops. In order to destroy them various insecticides are used. These insecticides cause a lot of soil pollution. Various dams and canals made for irrigation purposes cause...

Conditions Needed for Effective Enzyme Action

Jolly Nguyen 11C Conditions needed for effective enzyme action Aim: To investigate the activity of enzymes and how might the activity be effected in different conditions. Hypothesis: Temperature rises and change of substrate concentration may cause denaturation of the protein of enzymes. So as the temperature rises the amount of active enzyme progressively decreases, and the rate is slowed. Exposure to heat causes atoms to vibrate violently and this disrupts bonds within globular proteins...

Environment's effect on Growth of Bread Molds I. INTRODUCTION A. BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY Molds are species of fungi. There are many different kinds of molds, some of which are specially adapted to grow in particular environments or on particular surfaces. Unlike plants, molds cannot produce their own food, so they need an external source of energy and nutrients. Molds (and mildew) are fungi. Fungi are neither plant nor animal but, since 1969, have their own kingdom. The fungi kingdom...

Plants can only obtain mineral salts in solution and human digestion will only dissolve soluble foods, meaning large starch molecules must be broken down into soluble sugars.

The Issues Raised by the Growth of Manchester and the Reaction to These Issues over the Course of the 19th Century

Manchester is a city in England that experienced tremendous growth between the 1750’s and 1850’s. The population grew from 18,000 in 1750 to over 300,000 by the census of 1851. This growth called for more homes and factories to be built in order to support the growing population. With the constructing of more factories to support the rise in population came the growth of industry and manufacturing. The growth of the city, along with these factories, brought about several issues other than the manufacturing...
