The primary objective of this experiment is to determine the stress that various alcohols have on biological membranes. Membranes within cells are composed mainly of lipids and proteins and often serve to help maintain order within a cell by containing cellular materials. Different membranes have a variety of specific functions. One type of membrane-bound vacuole found in plant cells, the ...

When you think of pH, you probably think of liquid acids and bases. But soil can be acidic or basic, too. Soil pH, sometimes referred to as soil acidity, can be expressed using the pH scale. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. Soils with pH above 7 are basic or sweet. Soils with pH below 7 are acidic or sour. A soil with a pH of 7 is neither acidic nor basic, but is neutral. The pH of soil is an ...
The Vernier Anemometer is an impeller-type anemometer that measures wind speed in the range of 0.5 to 30 m/s (1 to 67 mph). The Anemometer fits in your palm for wind study measurements in the field.

To assist you as you move from the classroom or laboratory setting to online teaching, we are offering the Vernier Experiment and Sample Data Library—a free collection of over 300 experiments with sample data covering many subjects that you can distribute to your students at home.
Greenhouses allow gardeners to grow plants in cold weather. This is because the air inside the greenhouse stays warmer than the outside air. Short wavelength radiation from the sun passes through the glass, warming the interior of the greenhouse. The longer-wavelength radiation emitted does not pass through glass and is trapped in the greenhouse. This, along with the lack of mixing between the ...
Teach students chromatography with an affordable, portable gas chromatograph that detects polar and nonpolar compounds. With the easy-to-use Go Direct Mini GC, free experiments from the included e-book, and the free Vernier Instrumental Analysis™ app, students can separate, analyze, and identify substances contained in a volatile liquid or gaseous sample.
Introduction. Yeast can metabolize sugar in two ways, aerobically, with the aid of oxygen, or anaerobically, without oxygen.When yeast metabolizes a sugar under anaerobic conditions, ethanol (CH 3 CH 2 OH) and carbon dioxide (CO 2) gas are produced.An equation for the fermentation of the simple sugar glucose (C 6 H 12 O 6) is: . The metabolic activity of yeast can be determined by the ...
