  • Collision Theory

    401 words - 2 pages

    Collision Theory The rate of a reaction is the speed at which a reaction happens. If a reaction has a low rate, that means the molecules combine at a slower speed than a reaction with a high rate. Some reactions take hundreds, maybe even thousands of years while other can happen in less than one second. The rate of reaction depends on the type of molecules that are combining. There is another big idea for rates of reaction called collision theory. The collision theory says that the more collisions in a system, the more likely combinations of molecules will happen. If there are a higher nu

    Lactose Intolerance

    592 words - 3 pages

    What causes lactose intolerance? Lactose is a disaccharide, which means that it is composed of two other sugars bound together. In order for lactose to be absorbed, it must be split into those two smaller sugars. This split is performed by an enzyme called lactase, which is present in the lining of the small intestine. If the levels of the lactase enzyme are low or absent, then that splitting does not occur. The lactose is fermented by the bacteria in the large intestine and this produces excess gas and stomach rumbling and leads to diarrhoea. Lactase activity is high in babies and d

    Lactose Intolerance

    380 words - 2 pages

    When you are lactose intolerant you have trouble digesting lactose. Lactose is a type of sugar that is found in milk and most dairy products. Lactose needs to be digested in order for your body to make fuel. Lactase, an enzyme that breaks down into simpler sugars, is made by the small intestine. Your body can not properly digest food that contains lactose without lactase. About 30 million to 50 million people in the US have lactose intolerance. Those who have this condition usually inherit it from their parents. Lactose intolerance is very common among Asian Americans. You can also develop

    7 Wonders

    335 words - 2 pages

    New Seven Wonders of the World is a project that attempts to revive the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World concept with a list of modern wonders. A popularity poll was organized by the private New7Wonders Foundation, with winners announced on July 7, 2007 in Lisbon, Portugal. The Swiss-based New7Wonders Foundation claims more than 100 million votes were cast through the Internet or by telephone. Nothing prevented multiple votes, so the poll is considered "decidedly unscientific". According to John Zogby, founder and current President/CEO of the Washington-based polling organization Zogby Inte

    Question 4 Explain the relevance of the term ‘neo-colonialism’ to an understanding of the environmental relationship between North and South? Neo-Colonialism was a term that was often used after World War 2, which described how the Core began to use economic powers, in forms of lending money to control former colonies. This created political, economic and social dependencies on the Core. In few cases the relationship between the North and South is rarely equal (Maliha 2008). South nations who depend on the North find that Multinational corporations, who invest in their country, do not enr

    How to evaluate beyond happy sheets? 77 % of organisations have a training budget and on average they spend £300 and provide 5 training days per person per year (CIPD barometer of trends survey 2010). To ascertain how effective the training was the company will be required to conduct some form of evaluation. Evaluation is the measurement of what the training intervention actually achieved against what is was supposed to achieve. Burke (1993) argues that evaluation is very important and should be seen as an organisational annual health check; however, it involves more time and money. This

    Types of Reactions Lab Part A 2H2O2 + MnO2 ? 2H2O + O2 The result of placing the Manganese oxide into the hydrogen peroxide was water (H2O) and Oxygen gas (O2). The volume of the products is greater than the volume of the reactants. The lid of the container came off as a result of the increase of pressure inside the container. However the mass of the reactants was the same as the mass of the products as stated by the law of conservation of mass. Part B Was hydrogen present in the test tube? How could you tell? If your test did not confirm the presence of hydrogen, give a possible exp

    Food Allergy Food Allergy   Everyone eats to survive, and most people enjoy eating. However, recent studies have found that about 4% of the U.S. population and about 4-6% of children are 2   allergic to at least one food (3). Other studies indicate that food allergies are increasing in prevalence and as a result, more and more people are becoming aware of food allergy, making it a subject of increasing public concern. When one person in a family has a food allergy, the whole family is affected. There may be day-to-day anxiety that a loved one may accidentally eat a food that c
