    Faster Dissolved Oxygen Test Kit Purpose The purpose of my project is to determine if there is any significant difference in dissolved oxygen (DO) levels as measured by the traditional HACH (R) method or the newly developed CHEMets (R) test kit under typical field conditions. Hypothesis My hypothesis is that there is no significant difference in dissolved oxygen (DO) levels as measured by the traditional HACH (R) method or the newly developed CHEMets (R) test kit under typical field conditions. ...
  • Sleep Apnea Oxygen Brain Throat

    Causes, Health Affects, and Treatment of Sleep Apnea Sleep Apnea is involved with the respiratory and central nervous systems. The respiratory system allows a person to breathe in oxygen and excrete carbon dioxide (Deepak 116). After entering the mouth or the nose, oxygen travels into the pharynx, the larynx, and then the trachea. The trachea splits into two branches which then split into smaller tubes called bronchioles. Hair-like projections called cilia cover the bronchioles and protect them...
  • Water Quality Carbon Dioxide
    842 words
    Water quality is a complex term to evaluate. The health of a water ecosystem depends on so many things. These parameters are each intertwined and connected. For simplicity there are several mainstream parameters that are used in conjunction with each other to determine the water s quality. These include: alkalinity, ammonia content, carbon dioxide, chlorine, nitrates, dissolved oxygen, phosphates, temperature, and turbidity. The most visible sign of poor water quality remains to be animal popul...
  • Phosphates And Dissolved Oxygen
    829 words
    Phosphates are present in many natural waters, such as lakes and streams. Phosphates are essential to aquatic plant growth, but too much phosphate can lead to the growth of algae and results in an algae bloom. Too much algae can cause a decrease in the amount in dissolved oxygen in the water. Oxygen in water is affected in many different ways by phosphates Phosphorus is usually present in natural waters as phosphate (Mc welsh and Raintree, 1998). Phosphates are present in fertilizers and laundry...
  • Dissolved Oxygen Water Levels Gas
    629 words
    Research Dissolved oxygen infers to the volume of oxygen that is contained in water. Oxygen enters water through photosynthesis and across the water interface. The amount of oxygen that can be held by the water depends on the water pressure, salinity, and temperature. Gas solubility increases with decreasing temperature; thus colder water holds more oxygen. A reason why freshwater holds more oxygen than does saltwater is because gas solubility increases with decreasing salinity. When there is a ...

After entering the mouth or the nose, oxygen travels into the pharynx, the larynx, and then the trachea. The trachea splits into two branches which then split into smaller tubes called bronchioles. Hair-like projections called cilia cover the bronchioles and protect them from foreign particles. From the bronchioles, air enters t...
