The Life and Ideas of Maria Winkelmann a German Astronomer
Maria Winkelmann was a German (Panitsch) born woman who lived from 1670 to 1720. She was one of the first astronomers of her time, and she is thought to have learned astronomy from her father, her uncle, and a self-taught astronomer (who later becomes her husband) by the name of Christoph Arnold of Sommerfeld, as she never...

An Observation and Analysis of a Chemical Reaction
Rates can be measured by determining the amount of the product formed per minute time. Our group observed the reaction . The ions in iodate ion (Solution A) and hydrogen sulfite ion (Solution B) are unable to be seen in the solution but the iodide ion formed by this reaction will react with the iodate ion. The reaction bet...

The Ancient Methods of Measuring the Earth
240 B.C., Greek astronomer Eratosthenes made the first good measurement of the size of the earth. According to Russel, he made these calculations “by using the length of shadows to figure out how high in the sky the Sun was in a certain place on a certain day. He knew of another place where there was no shadow at all on the...

An Experiment to Determine How Different Colors of Light Affect the Photosynthetic Rate of Spinach Levels
Introduction All living organisms need energy to maintain order, to grow, and reproduce. Organisms ultimately get their source of energy from the sun, however we cannot convert light energy into usable energy alone. Instead, the light energy is first converted into chemical energy through an essential reaction that takes p...

An Experiment to Study the Process of Osmosis
Osmosis is the chemical and physical process that transports a solvent form a high concentration to a lower concentration. It is used everywhere from the tiny areas around your cell to the vast fresh water generating plants. In this project, we replicate this life-sustaining process using an egg. The egg demonstrates a hypo...
