Postlab Questions
1. Whas is the theoretical yield of casein based on the table of Milk Composition Analysis?
3.3 %
2. What is your percent yield? 3.2g/3.9g x 100= 82%
3. Why might your percent yield be lower than expected?
More fat has a decrease in protein which would cause a lower percent yield.
4. Why might your percent yield be higher than expected? Less fat causes an increase in protein, thus giving a higher percent yield.
5. In the precipitation of casein, why is it important that the temperature be maintained at 40°C?
To allow and encourage , for example with the milk casein to form and appear.

    As babies milk plays a vital role in our lives as it gives us the basic components that allows us to grow and develop a healthy body. Milk contains proteins and lipids, it also provides the body with calcium, which strengthens bones. We get most of our milk supply from cows and their milk is 80% casein. These casein proteins play a big role in the making of yoghurts and other dairy products. For milk to curdle quicker you would have to add a high acidic solution.…

    The percent yield for the second part of the experiment was calculated to be 85% (Table 7.1). The percent yield was calculated in a similar manner as the first calculation. However, this time the theoretical product was calculated by using the weighed amount of salicylic acid which was 1.414g. This weight was converted to the weight in grams of acetylsalicylic acid (Table 7.1).…

    Water hardness is a measure of the amount of calcium and magnesium carbonate dissolved as Ca 2+ and Mg 2+ in water. There are no health hazards associated with water hardness, however, it causes scaling, as well as forming of soap suds. Compleximetric titration is one of the best ways of measuring total water hardness using a standard ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) solution. EDTA solution is used as it has the ability to easily bind with calcium and magnesium ions. EDTA and Ca2+ react at the ratio of 1:1. The purpose of this experiment is to determine the hardness of water by measuring the concentrations of calcium and magnesium in water samples by titration. The total hardness is expressed in terms of the equivalent concentration of calcium carbonate in parts per million. The amount of CaCO3, in this experiment, is determined by titrating calcium ions from a sample tap water (from Baguio).…
