Discussion: In the lab with germinated and dry peas along with glass beads, determining the rate of respiration in each different type of seed was the goal. The hypothesis stated that since the germinated peas were still alive, they would contain a higher rate of respiration needed to remain healthy compared to the dried peas and glass beads.

Cellular Respiration Lab Report Wednesday 8:00 A.M. Lab March 2nd, 2005 I. Introduction In this lab we are measuring the amount of oxygen used in both germinating and non germinating peas. We are measuring the oxygen consumption by taking a reading of a respirometer submerged in two water baths. The first bath will be cold water and the second warm to determine the effect of temperatures on oxygen consumption. Our negative control will be glass beads to measure to increase or decrease in atmospheric pressure or temperature changes. There is a direct relationship between oxygen consumption and Carbon Dioxide produced, therefore the more O2 consumed the more CO2 produced. To keep the amount of CO2 produced from canceling out any pressure gained or lost from the consumption of CO2 we are adding KOH(Potassium Hydroxide) to the respirometers. Since the CO2 will be selectively removed the change in the volume of gas in the respirometer should be directly related to the oxygen consumed. In this experiment the germinating peas, in both water baths, should consume much more oxygen than the non-germinating peas or the glass beads, because germination has began thus accelerating cellular reactions and the rate of respiration. The cold water bath should slow the respiration down in all three respirometers.…

Each test tube, except for the blank, had 1.5 mL of water serologically pipetted into them. In addition to the water, those same test tubes had 500 µL of both the DCPIP and reaction buffer added to them with a micropipette. Next came the blank, which only had 2 mL of water and 500 µL of the reaction buffer pipetted into it. Once the addition of these substances was completed, 25 µL of the enriched chloroplast was added to just the blank, as well as test tubes 4-9. Each test tube with the added chloroplast was then placed onto the vortex, one by one, to ensure the substances thoroughly combined. Once the mixing was finished, the blank, test tubes 1-3 and 7-9 were all placed in a tube rack beneath the light source. Tubes 4-6, which contained no enriched chloroplast, were put into a separate tube rack, which was situated in a closed drawer so that no light made contact with those samples. As soon as both racks were placed in their respective locations, a 5 minute timer was started. Once these 5 minutes passed, both racks were taken and placed next to the spectrometer. Test tube 0 was used to then blank the spectrometer, after which each tube had their absorbance read at 600 nm by the spectrometer. After each tube had its absorbance read and recorded, they were placed back where they came from, either under the light source or in the dark. This process of placing the…

Cellular Respiration My hypothesis for the germinated pea experiment was that the level of aerobic respiration would increase as the temperature would increase. I also predicted that there would be an upper temperature limit. The experiment proved part of my hypothesis correct and part of it incorrect. I was correct in predicting that the rate would increase as the temperature increase, but I was incorrect in hypothesizing that there would be an upper limit. My hypothesis for the larvae experiment was that the level of aerobic respiration would increase as the temperature increased and there would be an upper temperature limit. My hypothesis was proved to be correct, for the rate of respiration continued to increase until the upper limit was hit and the rate started to decline. There were no unexpected results from our group, but I noticed that group six had some unexpected data in the class larvae table. The only explanation I can make out of it is that the group made a math error. I do not have any suggestions to make this experiment better. Other factors that can affect the rate of cellular respiration are amount of available nutrients, because this allows more energy to be produced from the cell with an increase in amount of nutrients. Another factor is the state of the cell, such as the difference between working and dormant cells or the difference between plant and animal cells.…
