beetroot coursework

Post by TYkimbers » Tue Jan 23, 2007 5:02 pm

Hey, I have to make a plan for this question:

Investigation into the effect of heat on beetroot cell membranes (to see how much red pigment will diffuse into its surrounding, e.g. water)
I know that I have to use a colourimeter and different tempereatures but I don't know how to do the experiment.
Could someone help me out here please!!!
Thanx and much appreciated!

Any guesses? I mean, usually in experiments you just change one factor and see how it affects the other...
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

you would keep the amount of beetroot used the same and the amount of water. to keep the beetroot the same size you could use a cork bora and scalpul. Just a couple of suggestions.
hope this helps :)
