Exploring the interconnection of greenhouse gas emission and socio-economic factors

Exploring the interconnection of greenhouse gas emission and socio-economic factors   Abstract – This paper examines the dependence of the emission of greenhouse gases including CO2, N2O and CH4 on…

The Effects of Acid Rain on the Visible Light Absorption of Stained Glass

Abstract The effect of acid rain on stained glass windows is felt by many churches and other historic buildings worldwide, especially in Europe. As a result, the relationship between the…

Which diaper is more absorbent, Huggies or Pampers?

Our experiment’s purpose is to find which newborn diaper, Huggies Little Snugglers or Pampers Swaddlers, absorbs more simulated urine (5% salt water). The Pampers diaper is composed of an average…

Dispersing Agents Prevent Negative Impact of Oil on Uptake of Zinc by Duckweed (Lemna minor)

Oil spills have had extremely negative effects on the environment. The oil directly coats both animal and plant species living in and around the water, rendering these organisms unable to…

Does Music Directly Affect a Person’s Heart Rate?

Music can have a profound effect on a person’s body, in that it may cause people to dance and move around, but does it have a direct and significant effect…

The Effect of UV Treatment on the Degradation of Compostable Polylactic Acid

Though many compostable plastics have entered the market, they often require lengthy treatment processes to degrade. Polylactic acid (PLA) has the greatest potential to replace petroleum-based plastics due to its…

Investigating KNOX Gene Expression in Aquilegia Petal Spur Development

Organ growth in many flowering plants progresses through two phases: cell proliferation and cell elongation. Recent work has indicated that class 1 KNOX genes regulate cell proliferation. These genes encode…

Comparing the Voltage Output of Water in Drop and Flow Form Using a Piezoelectric Sensor and Hydroelectric Turbine

Due to the harmful effects of broadly used energy sources, alternative energy sources have been widely studied. One area of interest is transferring kinetic water energy in nature, as in…

Mapping QTLs for Popping Ability in a Popcorn × Dent Maize Genetic Cross

Corn (maize, Zea mays L.) is one of the world’s most economically important grain crops. When exposed to heat, its starch-filled kernels pop and cook into puffs. The high demand…

The Development and Maximization of a Novel Photosynthetic Microbial Fuel Cell Using Rhodospirillum rubrum

This study analyzes the potential viability of the photosynthetic bacterium Rhodospirillum rubrum for producing electricity via microbial fuel cell (MFC), as prior research has not investigated this capacity. A prototype…
