Re: What happens to water during photosynthesis?

... chemical substance solution involving photosynthesis is usually this kind of : 6CO2 + 12H2O -> C6H12O6 + 6O2 + 6H2O You can view that this coefficient involving drinking water lowered as soon as the impulse happen. Lowering of the drinking water happens in thylakoid. This particular impulse ...

mutation-selection balance

... higher allele frequency for lethal recessive alleles). If the allele is not lethal in homozygotes, then q=√(μ/s), where s is again the selection coefficient for those who have a homozygous affected genotype. N.B. √ is square root in case it's not visible. What I don't get is why are the formulas ...

Re: molar extinction coefficient

Well done -- I promise that the next time you face this sort of graphical calculation, it will make more sense. And as you've found, it's all about the units.

Re: molar extinction coefficient

Yes, that sounds too low, at least for those wavelengths where methyl red absorbs strongly. Did you correct your concentrations for the dilution you made as you mixed your stock solution into liquid prior to making the spectrometer measurement?

Re: molar extinction coefficient

... given the graph you see. By the way, using the above i got 0.01871m-1 cm-1 for methyl red....is this value not too small for the molar extinction coefficient though?
