  • Potassium - 929 Words
    | 2/26/2013 | | Potassium is a chemical element with the symbol K and has 19 electrons. Elemental potassium is a soft silvery-white alkali metal that oxidizes quickly in air and is very reactive with water. Potassium ions are essential for the function of all living cells. Potassium ion diffusion is a key component in nerve transmission, and potassium weakening in animals, including humans, results in cardiac dysfunctions. Potassium collects in plant cells, therefore fresh...

    Activity FOUR There is a direct relationship between the MWCO and the filtration rate; the higher the MWCO, the higher the filtration rate. Powdered charcoal is the solute that did not appear in the filtrate when using any MWCO membranes. As pressure increases, the filtration rate also increases, as long as the MWCO does not decrease. Since we have no control over the MWCO of a living membrane, we can increase the rate of filtration by increasing the pressure. The molecular weight...

    Electrolyte is a scientific term for salts, specifically ions. The term electrolyte means that this ion is electrically-charged and moves to either a negative or positive electrode. Ions that move to the negative which are called cations are positively charged and Ions that move to the positive which are called anions are negatively charged. They can be divided into acids, bases, and salts, because they all give ions when dissolved in water. Electrolytes are present in the human body, and the...

In this most stable energy state, all electrons are in the lowest energy levels available. When atoms or ions in the ground state are heated to high temperatures, some electrons may absorb enough energy to allow them to “jump” to higher energy levels. The element is then said to be in the “excited state”. This excited configuration is unstable,...
