To Study Oxalate Ion Content in Guava Fruit

[pic], where c is the speed of light in vacuum and v is the speed of light in the substance. For example, the refractive index of water is 1.33, meaning that light travels 1.33 times as fast in vacuum as it does in water. (See typical values for different materials here.) The historically first occurrence of the refractive index was in Snell's law of refraction, n1sinθ1= n2sinθ2, where θ1 and θ2 are the angles of incidence of a ray crossing the interface between two media with refractive indices n1 and n2...

Oxalate From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search The structure of the oxalate anion A ball-and stick model of oxalate Oxalate (IUPAC: ethanedioate) is the dianion with the formula C2O42−, also written (COO)22−. Either name is often used for derivatives, such as salts of oxalic acid (for example disodium oxalate, (Na+)2C2O42−) or esters thereof (for example dimethyl oxalate, (CH3)2C2O4). Oxalate also forms coordination compounds where it is sometimes abbreviated...

Fruit Ripening

are some fruits sweet and some sour, whereas others have no specific taste? Naturally fruit contains cellulose, proteins, starch, proteins, vitamins, certain acids and fructose (or sugar). When fruit ripens, a series of chemical changes occur in the fruit that result in either a sweet fruit, sweet and sour fruit, sour fruit or fruit with no specific taste. During these changes, the acids content in fruit becomes less and the fructose content increases thereby resulting in a sweet fruit (Coen...

Fruits Professor Kelechi Mezu Introduction to Biology – SCI 115 March 2, 2010 We use our sense of taste to differ if fruit is sweet or sour. That taste depends on the components in the fruit. Fruits contain fructose, acids, vitamin, starch, proteins, and cellulose. All of these components contribute to the taste of fruit. Fruits with high fructose levels tend to be sweeter whereas fruits with high levels of acid tend to be sour. Oranges however, have equal quantities of fructose and acids...

the vitamin content of fruit juice

VITAMIN C CONTENT OF FRUIT JUICE Aim: To investigate the vitamin C content of fruit juice.Hypothesis: I believe the more drops of fruit juice taken to decolourise DCPIP, the smaller the amount of vitamin C in that fruit juice. This is because DCPIP needed to be decolourised by ascorbic acid in fruit juice, so less concentration of ascorbic acids means that more ascorbic acids is needed to decolourised DCPIP. I believe that freshly squeezed orange is going to have the most Vitamin C content because...

Fruit Ripening

 Placing fruit in a bag will help hasten the ripening for only a few fruits. Most fruits will not ripen (ever) once they have been picked. The only fruits that ripen once they're picked are bananas, avocados, pears, mango, and kiwifruit. Ripeness in fruits is based on sugar content, not color, thus most tomatoes in grocery stores have no flavor because they were picked green and exposed to ethylene gas to induce color change. Tomatoes are what are known as a "climacteric fruit" which means they'll...

ABSTRACT A Fruit battery is a device used in experiments proposed in many science textbooks around the world. It is made by inserting two different metallic objects, for example a galvanized nail and a copper coin, into an ion bridge (for example a lemon, a potato or paper soaked in salt water or acid). The copper coin serves as the positive electrode or cathode and the galvanized nail as the electron-producing negative electrode or anode. These two objects work as electrodes, causing anelectrochemical...

Dry Fruits

Dried fruit is fruit that has been dried, either naturally or through use of a machine, such as a dehydrator. Vine fruits make up over three-quarters of the total global dried fruit volume. Prunes (also referred to as plums) and dates are other examples of popular dried fruits in the EU. Dried fruit has a long shelf life and can therefore provide a good alternate to fresh fruit, allowing out of season fruits to be available. Drying is a good way to preserve fruit in the absence of refrigeration...
