Automated greenhouse monitoring system

The main goal is to build a miniature greenhouse which is equipped with an automatic monitoring system. This monitoring system will constantly monitor the conditions in the greenhouse to ensure that it remains at preset temperature, light and humidity conditions. If these conditions differ from the preset levels, the monitoring system will automatically turn on certain devices to return the greenhouse to the required conditions. Benefits: Automatically control the growing environment within...

Some Ways the Enviornment Affects Human Health

be detected, both indoors and outdoors, year round. Mold growth is encouraged by warm and humid conditions. Outdoors they can be found in shady, damp areas or places where leaves or other vegetation is decomposing. Indoors they can be found where humidity levels are high, such as basements or showers. Finally this account demonstrates the wide range of effects that the environment may have on human health, but it is very far from exhaustive and for the sake of conciseness many hazards or their effects...

Evaporationin Our Daily Life

Weather systems react to the temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure. These three control systems are affected by one simple process, evaporation. Evaporation is the conversion of liquid water directly into its vapor or gaseousstate. Through evaporation, water from the surface is transferred straight into the atmosphere. Worldwide, evaporation is usually seen as the moderator of weather. Evaporation controls cloud cover, surface temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure. All of these...

onion pre-harvest

weather is dry; harvesting after a rainfall, or when the humidity is high increases susceptibility to post-harvest disease. At harvest, bulbs must be firm, with mature necks and scales, and must be a good size. Defective onions (i.e. sprouted, insect damaged, sunscalded, green, bruised) should be discarded.For optimum storage quality, onions must be cured soon after harvest by placing them in a drying room at 20-30°C and 70% relative humidity for 12 to 24 h. Curing decreases the incidence of neck...

Lab Test: Quality of Paper Towel

as much as Brawny. Brawny, absorbed 80% of the total amount whilst Bounty only absorbed 70% of the original amount. A source of error would be the humidity of the air. The humidity could have affected how much water the paper towels take in. Here in Colorado we would have a different result than in Florida because of the humidity difference. Humidity is a measure of how much water is in the air. If there is more water in the air, it will want to flow down its concentration gradient, (so there is...
