Ambient Temperature: 22.2 (C

Ambient Pressure : 754.9 mm Hg

Compressor Speed: 472 rev/min

Load on Dynamometer arm 9.25 N

Evaporator Current: 4.5 A

Evaporator Voltage: 200 V

Condenser Flow Rate: 483 g/s

Condenser Temp (inlet) 13.7 (C

Condenser Temp (exit) 20.8 (C

Condenser Pressure: 590 kPa (gauge)

Evaporator Pressure: 190 kPA (gauge)

Compressor Temp (inlet) 9.6 (C

Compressor Temp (exit) 43 (C

Condenser Temp (exit) 23.7 (C

Evaporator Temp (inlet) 0.4 (C


Mass flow rate of R134a around Evaporator

Q L = (V)(A) = (200)(5.4) = 1080 kW

P3 = 590 kPa h3 = h4 = 265 kJ/ kg (from table)
T3 = 23.7 (C

P1 = 190 kPa h1 = 261 kJ/ kg (from table)
T1 = 9.6 (C

Q L = m (h1 – h4)

m = 1.080 / (261 – 265) = 0.270 kg/s

Mass flow rate of R134a around Condenser

QH = mcw * Cp (water) (Tcw, in – Tcw, out) = (0.483)(4.18)(13.7 – 20.8) = 14.33 kJ/s

P2 = 590 kPa h2 = 283 kJ/ kg (from table)
T2 = 43 (C

P3 = 590 kPa h3 = h4 = 265 kJ/ kg (from table)
T3 = 23.7 (C

QH = m (h2 – h3)

m = 14.3 / (283 – 265) = 0.8 kg/s

Power input to the Compressor

Ps (shaft power) = F * (0.053218) * nc = (9.25)(0.053218)(7.87) = 3.82 kW

Power Factor = Pa / Ps
Pa = (0.57)(3.87) = 2.207 kW

Calculations Continued

There are 1000 (m in one mm.. etc.) To convert from one metric unit to a different metric unit (a different prefix): 1. First, decide how many places to move the decimal point (the number of 0’s in the chart above indicates the number of places to move the decimal point). 2. Next you need to decide whether to move the decimal point left or right. To decide this, think about which is the smaller unit. (The smaller the unit is, the more of them you need to get the same amount. e.g. pennies vs. dollars) NOTE: Here is another way to write the conversions, using distance (the meter is the basic unit for distance) as an example: 0.001 km = 1 m = 10 dm = 100 cm = 1000 mm = 1,000,000 (m = 1,000,000,000 nm The “staircase” method: One more way to remember about sliding decimal points when converting between prefixes in the metric system! [pic] Move the decimal point 3 places for every step you move on the “staircase”, and in the same direction traveled on the staircase (left vs. right). Unfortunately, you can see that the “c”......

The Freundlich Isotherm q=αC1v was then found to be a better model to approximate the adsorption isotherm for BSA as compared to Langmuir Isotherm. From the experimental data, the static capacity determined from Langmuir Isotherm approximation was estimated to be 330.033mg/g and the dynamic capacities flow rates of 5.0, 2.5, 0.5 ml/min were 0.918, 1.431 and 2.066 mg/g respectively, thus agreeing with theoretical knowledge that the static capacities should be larger than dynamic capacities as sufficient time were allowed for......

...C8057 (Research Methods in Psychology): Writing Laboratory Reports Writing Lab Reports & APA Format Structure and Content of a Laboratory Report This following provides a brief overview of the structure and content of various elements in a laboratory report, based on APA guidelines. The APA publication manual can be referred to for more detail. The purpose of a lab report is to communicate research in a clear, systematic and standardised way. Primarily, a lab report should communicate the following things: → Why did I bother? Why did I do this experiment and why is it an interesting contribution to science? → How did I do it? How did I carry out this research (this should be detailed enough so that the experiment could be replicated precisely)? → What did I find? What were the results of your study? → So What? What do your findings mean in terms of your hypotheses and what theoretical contribution do they make? IMPORTANT! The advice that we give you in this handout is not inflexible, it is a guide! For example, when we say that the title should be fewer than 15 words, the world will not end if your title is 16 words. So, please use your common sense. In case you don’t have any, the snail of sense will appear to give you some advice. Format There are several sections to a lab report: → Title → Abstract → Introduction → Method o o o o o → Results → Discussion → References → Appendix (Optional) Title Your title should ideally be fewer than 15 words.

...Introduction: In this lab, my partner Jacob Hodge and I will be doing four different experiments using a microscope. The purpose of this lab is to know the proper technique of focusing and making slides. In these experiments, Jacob and I will learn the parts of a compound light microscope, the functions of those parts, and the proper use and care of the microscope. We will also learn how to clean up wet mount slides. Objects, or specimens, to be observed under a microscope are generally prepared in one of two ways. Prepared or permanent slides are made to last a long time. They are usually purchased from biological supply houses. Temporary or wet mount slides are made to last only a short time-usually one laboratory period. In the 1600’s, Anton von Leeuwenhoek discovered the life that lives in a drop of pond water. This discovery opened up a new world for biologists that could be explored only with the aid of magnification. Since Leeuwenhoek’s time, the microscope has become one of the most important tools used by biologists. Much has been learned about the nature of life and about living things with the help of the microscope.

...Name: Gertrude Edwards Date: 12/1/2014 Instructor’s Name: Staci Lynn Assignment: SCI203 Phase 2 Lab Report TITLE: Speciation • Purpose o The purpose of this lab is to evaluate what would happen if a species within a population were suddenly split into 2 groups. • Introduction o If a population is divided indefinitely by a barrier members of the divided population will not have the opportunity to breed with each other, over years, the biotic and abiotic conditions on either side of the barrier will vary from one another. (M.U.S.E). • Hypothesis/Predicted Outcome o Based on what I’ve learned I expect that species will undergo changes if they were split into 2 different groups, some would adapt and some wouldn’t. • Methods o The methods I used in this lab came from M.U.S.E. The initial separation would consist of some species from the mainland reaching the isolated Island, then after that the isolated population would begin to diverge because of the genetic drift and natural selection, then after that overtime divergence may eventually become sufficient to cause reproduction isolation. (M.U.S.E). • Results/Outcome o As a result, Natural selection will cause different selective and adaptive pressures to occur between the two divided populations and they will evolve forever. Over time this will result in speciation which is the creation of two new species. (M.U.S.E). •......

...Dialysis and Osmosis Beitz 1 Introduction: The cell membrane is not a solid structure. It is made of millions of smaller molecules that create a flexible container. Proteins and phospholipids make up most of the membrane structure. “The proteins are found around the holes and help move molecules in and out of the cell. There are also proteins attached to the inner and outer surfaces of the membrane” (BiologyKids, 15). There are receptor proteins which receive specific molecules, and there are transport proteins. There are two types of transport proteins which only allow specific molecules to enter and exits, therefore selectively permeable. Releasing chemicals is called Exocytosis, and taking in chemicals is endocytosis. “Scientists use the fluid mosaic model to describe the organization of phospholipids and proteins. The model shows you that phospholipid molecules are shaped with a head and a tail region. The head section of the molecule likes water (hydrophilic) while the tail does not (hydrophobic). Because the tails want to avoid water, they tend to stick to each other and let the heads face the watery (aqueous) areas inside and outside of the cell” (BiologyKids, 15). The two surfaces of molecules create the lipid bilayer. The interior of the lipid bilayer is “oily” and flexible like a soap bubble. Osmosis is the diffusion of water across a selectively permeable membrane, which is a barrier that has holes large enough to allow water molecules to pass but small......

...pull it apart sharply and quickly. 3. The putty is very bouncy as compared to the slime. 4. Wrote ink-based pen on some paper and placed the putty on it while applying pressure. When lifted, the ink is on the putty as it sticks on to it. Conclusion Like the slime, Silly Putty is also a shear-thickening substance. The shear-thickening behavior happens they form these short-lived cross-linking bonds.  Basically it grabs onto the polymer chains monetarily, releases quickly, and then it re-forms another cross-link in a different place. This grab-release process happens repeatedly and rapidly, but also not fast until it lets the fluid flow normally. It bounces and also has a rubbery texture.

...Lab Report Introduction: Natural selection relies upon the assumption that all organisms produce more offspring than can survive in an environment demonstration limited resources. The heritable traits that are best suited for a particular environment should be passed on at a greater frequency then those less adaptive traits. Natural selection is unique in that it leads to adaptive change, and these changes are likely to lead to increased survival and reproductive success. To sum up, natural selection is that organisms can survive only because they can suit to the changed environment which means those organisms also need to change with the environment all the time. Hypothesis: during the experiment, the forks out of all the “predators” should survive, and the peas out of all those “preys” will be survived. Material and Metnods: We will use 4 kind of beans (preys items) which are fava beans, white beans, red beans and peas. And we also have 4 mouthparts (predators) which are knives, forks, spoons and foreceps. First, we get 100 ml for each prey and spread them on the ground. And the students will be divided into 4 groups with those 4 different predators. Each group of predators include 6 student. And all of the predators will have a cup which will serve as the stomach into which the prey will be placed. We also have a timer and a security that will make sure the process is fair. Here we begin the game. The predators will be gathered, they will be instructed not......

...Why do we keep a lab notebook? In the ‘real world’, you will be expected to record what you do and how you do it, with the data clearly identifiable. There are 2 reasons for this: • Any scientific experiment is only considered valid if it can be repeated by someone else using your notebook. • If you develop a new product or process, your notebook becomes a legal document that can be scrutinized in a court of law, especially in cases of patent infringement. In order to meet these requirements, certain conditions must be met: • Notebooks shall have bound pages, loose-leaf and spiral bound are not acceptable. • All pages must be numbered prior to use. This will show if any pages have been removed that contained data that might compromise interpretation of your conclusions. • All data shall be entered chronologically. Do not leave empty pages to insert information later. If you finish with a large expanse of blank page, put a line through it to show that it will not be used. • All notes are to be made in indelible pen – pencil will be penalized. If you make a mistake, just draw a single line through it, not a childish scribble to hide all traces! • All data will be recorded in your lab notebook at the moment it is generated. No notes shall be written on scraps of paper or memorized for later. Other notes about the lab notebook: All pre-lab and experimental work is hand-written in your lab notebook. ......
