    Title: Principles and Practice of Agarose Gel ElectrophorsisObjectives: To detect the size, shape and charge of the each dye solution. Methods: Casting the Agarose Gel In this experiment. 8% solution was used. By using a 250 ml flask the buffer solution was prepared. Using the equation to make enough solution for the in tire lab class the equation had to be multiply ed by five. The contents of this equation were added to the 250 ml flask and swirled to evenly distribute it contents. Then a mark ...
  • Convergent Plate Boundary
    492 words
    Lab Report The structure of the earth is made up of many layers, but the crust and the upper mantle make up the lithosphere. The lithosphere is divided into individual sections called plates. The rest of the mantle makes up the asthenosphere. Convection in asthenosphere causes the plates to shift and move about. We can tell where the plates are or have been because volcanoes and earthquakes have their own boundaries when the are active. Tectonic plates have three relationships with each other. T...
  • Mountains Near The Edges Of The Plates

    The Shifting of Pangea Have you ever noticed that a map of the world looks like a puzzle and the continents look like the pieces that would fit together to complete the puzzle. In 1912, Alfred Wegener, a German scientist and an adventurer, came up with a theory that the continents had once been part of a "supercontinent". Wegener proposed that, over 200 million years, what he called Pangea had separated and became individual pieces. Pangea means "all lands" in Greek, and that is what Pangea was,...

  • Caribbean Plate
    1,089 words
    The Caribbean Sea is geologically separate from the North and South American continents. Together with Central America, it forms a tectonic plate which is moving W at about 4 cm a year. At the same time, the North American and South American plates, which lie under the continents and the eastern half of the Atlantic Ocean, are moving W. Most of the Caribbean islands are close to the boundaries of the Caribbean plate. Plate boundaries are geologically active; this is why most parts of the Caribbe...
  • Wegener's Theory
    1,410 words
    Pangaea: The Truth Untold "Scientists still do not appear to understand sufficiently that all earth sciences must contribute evidence toward unveiling the state of our planet in earlier times, and that the truth of the matter can only be reached by looking through all this evidence... It is only by combing the information furnished by all the earth sciences that we can hope to determine 'truth' here, that is to say, to find the picture that sets out all the known facts in the best arrangement an...
  • Two Oceanic Plates
    282 words
    two oceanic plates were colliding into each other. Consequently, forming new oceanic crust along with over tremendous distances?" A noted English geophysicist, Harold Jeffreys, argued that it was physically impossible for masses of solid rock to move without breaking up. Plus, the driving forces from the ridges. Collision of two plates causes some crust to be destroyed or diminished in size. The results are different depending on the type of plates e movement of the Earth. Enormous blocks of sol...
