Sodium Bicarbonate

KNES 470 Dr Rubin 4-18-12 Sodium Bicarbonate and Boxing Performance Boxing is a sport which relies on anaerobic power since it contains short-duration and high intensity work. A typical boxing match today consists of 3 minute rounds with a 1 minute seated recovery rest. When an athlete performs exercise at maximal level for more than 30 seconds, most of the energy comes from anaerobic glycolysis. During this process, lactic acid is produced which causes a decrease in pH levels within the muscle...

Sodium Bicarbonate as Toothpaste

unlike at the taste. By adding flavorings, it can be used by everyone in the family. D. Definition of Terms • Sodium Bicarbonate – Baking Soda • TRPM8 – Transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily M member 8 also known as the cold and menthol receptor 1, is a protein. TRPM8 is an ion channel, upon activation it allows the entry of  Na+ (sodium) and Ca2+(calcium) ions to the cell that leads to depolarization and the generation of an action potential. This eventually...

Photosynthesis lab

context: Plant leaves are known to have a spongy mesophyll layer which usually contains CO2 and O2 gases within it, due to this leaves and leaf disks usually float in water. If leaves are placed in an alternate source of carbon dioxide in the form of bicarbonate ions, then photosynthesis can occur. When photosynthesis occurs, oxygen will accumulate in the air space of the mesophyll, causing the sunken leaf to become buoyant again. Cellular respiration occurs at the same time as photosynthesis in plant these...

Which Antacid Works the Best?

and Sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3). Aluminum hydroxide preparations vary in their solubility and neutralizing ability. The aluminum chloride salt that is formed in the reaction with gastric acid is insoluble and can cause constipation. Tetracycline is absorbed from this antacid also. Phosphate also can also be rendered in absorbable due to salt formation and cause a bone condition called osteomalacia. Calcium carbonate is a very effective antacid and reacts more slowly than sodium bicarbonate. Some...

Extraction and Evaporation: Separating the Components of "Panacetin"

layer on top. Separation of Aspirin: Sodium bicarbonate was added to the aqueous solution in Tube B. A slight fizzing occurred as a result of the release of carbon dioxide. The solution then separated into two separate layers. When HCl was added, the aqueous solution fizzed. Separation of the Unknown: When concentrating the unknown component by evaporation, it took roughly five minutes to form a solid. Figure 3. The Reaction with Aspirin and Sodium Acetylsalicylate Caption:...

Antacids: Calcium Carbonate and Magnesium Compounds

a condition whereby the gastric acid returns in greater concentration after the drug effect has ceased. Moreover, this class of antacids is not suitable for all patients owing to its components. For example, the usually high concentration of sodium bicarbonate present in these chemical antacids may be inappropriate for patients afflicted with hypertension or kidney failure. Non Absorbable Antacids The non-absorbable antacids though less prone to cause a rebound effect, have their fair share...

Respiration Lab

baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) in order to make 0.5%, 1%, 1.5%, 2% and 2.5% solutions respectively. We labeled each container by its percentage of bicarbonate. Step 7: We recorded the time at which each leaf rose to the top. We deleted steps two and eight and applied all other steps to all five of our solutions. III. Data/Results Graph 1: * Table 1: Baseline: Amount of time (minutes:seconds) Taken for 10 spinach leaves in 0% and .2% sodium bicarbonate...

sucrose obtained by subtracting form the weight of sample bag and filter paper. 2. Separation of Aspirin Transfer the filtrate form the separation of sucrose to 100ml separating funnel and extract it with two 30ml portions of 5% sodium bicarbonate solution to form sodium acetyl salycilate which is insoluble in DCM. For both extractions, use a stirring rod to stir liquid layers until fizzing stops, and place a stopper and shake separating funnel. Transfer the two separate layer solutions to two different...

Purification of an Ester

the contents holding the lid with one hand and venting the gas pressure by using the other hand by opening the nozzle. The contents were allowed to settle and then the water layer was discarded off. The crude ester was then extracted with 5% Sodium Bicarbonate to remove any acidic impurities. Any layer formed was discarded again. The ester was then again extracted with 20mL of saturated NaCl solution and again the aqueous layer drained off. The crude ester was then transferred into a dry 100mL...

How Does the Amount of C02 Affect the Rate of Photosynthesis?

the plant.  The CO2 levels: Increased CO2 levels also increase the rate of photosynthesis. The variable I am going to investigate is the level of CO2, however, the addition of NaHCO3 (sodium bicarbonate) to the water may affect the osmotic ability of the water. Just 2g of sodium bicarbonate in 1000ml of water gives the equivalent salinity of seawater, and as Elodea is a fresh water plant, it cannot survive in salt water. I will need to take this into account when measuring the NaHCO3...
