Effect of Bird's Eye chili(i.e. capsicum frutescen) on Gryllus assimilis (the common black cricket)
This science project was conducted to determine if Bird's Eye chili can be used as a form of deterrent against Gryllus assimilis (the common black cricket). The experiment was done by spraying various concentrations of Bird's Eye chili extract on crickets.
How to store bread safely
This experiment was conducted to find out what conditions will help prevent bread becoming moldy. The bread was kept in different environments to observe the time taken for the mold to appear.
How the frequency at which a cricket chirps can be affected by external factors
There are several natural phenomena - the rate ants walk, the rate fireflies flash, the rate of a terrapin's heartbeat, and even the frequency of human alpha brain-wave patterns - that follow the Arrhenius equation closely. This page looks at one well-studied case, the chirp rate of the snowy tree cricket, oecanthus fultoni. This little cricket, shown below, is familiar to outdoor enthusiasts as a
Which brand of cooking spray works best?
wanted to find out how much food would stick to cookware using different brands of cooking spray. My hypothesis stated that name brand cooking spray would work the best, supermarket brands would be a close comparison, and that any amount of spray would work better than none at all.
Can water be split into oxygen and hydrogen?
If an electrical current is passed through water between electrodes (the positive and minus poles of a battery), the water is split into its two parts: oxygen and hydrogen. This process is called electrolysis and is used in industry in many ways, such as making metals like aluminum. If one of the electrodes is a metal, it will become covered or plated with any metal in the solution.
Is the water near animal pens contaminated?
The purpose of this experiment is to test the water near animal pens in Batesburg-Leesville for fecal contamination. I hypothesize that the wells located near the animal pens will be more likely to show fecal contamination than the wells that are not near animal pens.
What factors affect air polution in cities?
The Phoenix metropolitan area, like many large cities, has problems with air pollution at certain times of the year. You can do a simple experiment to determine some of the factors that affect air pollution.
How do Increased CO2 Levels Affect Plant Growth?
The problem with increased CO2 is its affect on global warming. CO2 is not a pollutant but it does trap infrared heat from radiating back into space. This phenomenon is known as the greenhouse effect. This global warming then affects global ecosystems by having effects on water vapor and other climate features. If CO2 levels continue to rise, the results to the planet are difficult to gauge. Som
How can plants be used to measure the level of air polution?
How can plants be used to measure the level of air pollution?
What are the effects of Polyacrylamide and. Polyacrylate on soil erosion?
The purpose of this experiment was to determine the effects polyacrylamide or polyacrylate could halt erosion. I believe that polyacrylate will halt erosion the best because there is evidence that polyacrylate has halted erosion.
