Product Details

Simple respirometers create a respiration chamber to study respiration. The amount of oxygen consumed by seeds is measured and compared to those of a control. The effect of a cold environment on respiration is also studied. Rectangular pans and thermometers are required and available separately.

Materials: French square bottles, Cotton balls*, 1-hole rubber stoppers (size 00), Rubber stoppers (size 51-mL), Serological pipets, Graduated pipets*, Petroleum jelly*, Pea seeds*, Glass stirring rods, Glass beads, 15% Potassium hydroxide solution*

Performance Expectations

HS-PS1-4. Develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from a chemical reaction system depends upon the changes in total bond energy.
HS-PS1-5. Apply scientific principles and evidence to provide an explanation about the effects of changing the temperature or concentration of the reacting particles on the rate at which a reaction occurs.
HS-PS1-7. Use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction.
HS-LS1-5. Use a model to illustrate how photosynthesis transforms light energy into stored chemical energy.
HS-LS2-3. Construct and revise an explanation based on evidence for the cycling of matter and flow of energy in aerobic and anaerobic conditions.
