Research Question: How does the temperature of the water affect the diffusion of food coloring?
Hypothesis: Food coloring will dissolve faster as the temperature of the water increases.
Variables:
Name of Variable | What is it? | How is it measured? | Units | Range of the data | Independent | Temp. of Water | Thermometer | oC (Celsius) | | Dependent | Rate of diffusion of food coloring | Stopwatch | Min (Minutes) | |

Controlled variables in the experiment include the type of beaker used (150mL max), the amount of water used for each trial (100mL), and the amount of drops of food coloring used for each trial (2 drops). These things were necessary to keep the same in the experiment because if they were changed, it would skew the data and make it inaccurate.
Procedure:
1. Get all materials (150mL beaker, food coloring, thermometer, 100mL of water, hot plate, stopwatch) 2. Fill beaker with 100ml of water. and measure the temperature of it (21°C right from the sink). 3. Drop two drops of food coloring, start the stopwatch, and measure how long it takes for the food coloring to completely diffuse. 4. Once finished, get rid of the water and do another trial. 5. Once done with the second trial, fill beaker with 100mL again. 6. Heat water to 30 degrees Celsius and drop two drops of food coloring, start the stopwatch, and measure how long diffusion takes. 7. Do another trial. 8. Repeat steps 2-4 for 40 and 50 degrees Celsius. 9. Once finished collecting data, clean up messes and put away materials.
Data:
Raw Data: Temperature (°C) | Diffusion of Food Coloring Trial 1 (s) | Diffusion of Food Coloring Trial 2 (s) | 21°C | 250 s | 243 s | 30°C | 147 s | 143 s | 40°C | 56 s | 63 s | 50°C | 45 s | 40 s |

Calculated Data: Temperature (°C) | Diffusion of Food Coloring Trial Average (s) | 21°C | 246.5 s

ATP is generated from aerobic respiration from the use of biosynthetic pathways. Glycolysis is where respiration starts in the cells and produces ATP, NADH, and 2 pyruvate molecules from the oxidation of six carbon carbohydrate and glucose. Even if oxygen is there or not, enzymes are mediated in the cytoplasm. The electron transport chain, chemiosmosis, and aerobic respiration use NADH molecule (which it main purpose is to transport electrons form one molecule to another) for later purposes. The mitochondrial matrix receives pyruvate from the cytoplasm after it crosses over the mitochondrial membrane. When the pyruvate enters the Krebs cycle it goes through many stages of biochemical enzyme-catalyzed reactions. In more detail about the cycle its main purpose is to produce little amounts of ATP by removing carbon dioxide and hydrogen from pyruvate molecules. Within the inner membrane of the mitochondrion the electron transport chain and chemiosmosis synthesis ATP with hydrogen ions which are NADH and FADH2. The Krebs cycle and glycolysis produce less ATP because chemiosmosis synthesizes a great amount of ATP.…

To test diffusion in a liquid, take two flasks and set them at different temperatures. To accomplish the temperature difference, one flask can be placed on ice and one should be left at room temperature. The flask should be placed on ice for about fifteen minutes until the water temperature is equal to the ice bath temperature. To indicate the rate of diffusion one milliliter of dye solution can be placed in each flask. Over period of one hour the colder flask will result in slower diffusion that the flask at room temperate. This experiment accurately supports that at higher temperatures molecules will diffuse faster. Diffusion in a gas can be tested by spraying a scent. However long it takes a person to smell the scent is the diffusion rate. Diffusion rate is measured in meters per second. A factor that may affect diffusion in a gas is a vent causing turbulence which may affect the rate at which the molecules…
