Exchange Question: Beetroot Method
Beetroot Method does anyone have some sources where to get the beetroot method from? i have made up a method but am unsure if it is correct and so i need a source to compare it with. Help will be much appreciated ASAP!!! thanks 1. Use a cork borer to cut out a cylinder of beetroot, then use a ruler ... need at least 24 discs. 2. Rinse the beetroot discs by placing water in a Petri dish. This gets rid of any pigment which has spilled out of the cut cells. 3. Measure a fixed volume of distilled water (I suggest 10cm^3) into each of 6 test tubes. Add 2 beetroot discs to each tube. 4. Leave one at ...
... into the effect of heat on beetroot cell membranes Hi, I'm currently studying the AQA Human Biology syllabus and was asked to write up my results for the above experiment. This is the instructions for what we had to do: 1. Use a cork borer to cut out a cylinder of beetroot, then use a ruler and ... need at least 24 discs. 2. Rinse the beetroot discs by placing water in a Petri dish. This gets rid of any pigment which has spilled out of the cut cells. 3. Measure a fixed volume of distilled water (I suggest 10cm^3) into each of 6 test tubes. Add 2 beetroot discs to each tube. 4. Leave one at ...
the beetroot experiment what happens if you put the beetroot in acetone, why is ther=e such a high % absorbtion? what happens when a frozen piece of beetroot goes in distilled water at room tempetature? Acetone is an organic solvent and the beetroot pigment is liklely to be more soluble in acetone ...

effect of detergent on beetroot cell membrane i have been asked to comment on the effect that detergents of different concentrations have on the cell membrane (and what particular part of this) of beetroot. and what will happen when the beetroot is placed in the detergent and why this will happenn ... emulsifies fat and so could disrupt the lipid part of th membrane. I've no idea if this actually DOES happen, as the lipid bilayer is not quite the same as free lipid but, assuming it does, then the beetroot pigment will leak out of the cells ...
Beetroot and pH How do you know how much of solutions to use and how big to cut things like beetroot? To test the effect of pH on beetroot cells would you suggest using pH buffers or something else? It would help if I knew what experiment you were talking about!!! It sounds as if it might be to do ... with permeability of beetroot membrane, but I'm not psychic! Buffers would normally be used for any experiment involving pH because they prevent variations in pH during the experiment ...
Detergent &* Beetroot cells investigation We have to write up the plan for the above experiement. Our tutor has said we will be provided with 2.5 dgm3 solution of lauryl sulphate and a beetroot. I thought that we would have different solution strengths and if we have to cut the beetroot won't that ... the membranes? Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated You can make different solutions from the one you have been given by diluting it. Cutting will damage the membranes of some cells (but a minority) and it would be best to rinse the cut beetroot before starting the experiment ...
Question: Beetroot
Beetroot What kinda errors will occur during the beetroot experiment? WHICH beetroot experiment????? I can't possibly help assess errors unless I know your experimental method. I assume that you are talking about permeability of beetroot membranes, but even then there are various slightly different ...
Beetroot Colour I have been asked to investigate why the colour leaks out of cooked beetroot! please give me some information i could include in write up! thanks! Colour normally leaks out of beetroot cells when they are damaged. The cell membrane keeps the pigment inside the cell vacuole, but if ... damaged (e,g, by cutting the beetroot), the pigment will leak out. Certain other factors, like heat, can damage the membrane by destroying the protein part of it. A common investigation at A level is to find the effect of temperature on the cell mambrane, using beetroot pigment as a 'measure' of ...
Beetroot Introduction ? Ok well i have all the key points i need to put in to my beetroot coursework but i just dont no how to put it all together. the name of the assignment is " An investigation into the effect of temerature on the permeability of the plasma membrane in beetroot cells." and i have ...
... into the effect of temperature on the rate of diffusion of beetroot pigment - planning section This is fine - no major criticisms at all. It is worth noting that even when taking samples from the same area of the beetroot, the concentration of pigment will not necessarily be identical. An ... of Beetroot Pigment 2.doc
