INTRODUCTION TO EXPERIMENTATION
ABSTRACT
The introduction to experimentation aimed to familiarize with some of the logic of research. The materials and apparatuses were pen, paper, and watch with second hand. The procedure of the experiment was that the experimenter instructs the subject to write the alphabet backward (from Z to A) as rapidly as possible. There would be 5 trials of 30 seconds each with a one-minute rest between trials. After the first trial, S would report orally the number of letters written and estimated the number expected in the second trial. After the second, third, and fourth trials, S would report the number estimated, the number achieved and the number estimated for the next trial. After the fifth trial only the estimated and achieved scores were reported.
As the trial repeats in the individual’s performance (subject), there was a rising in the achieved score. On the contrary, in trial 5, the achieved score fell comparing to the previous achieved scores in relation to the subject’s estimated score. In the grouped tally, the computation of the average is 0.2 indicated that the mean with its corresponding intervals below the computed average, failed to have a good performance in the experiment. On the other hand, mean with its corresponding intervals above the computed average, passed in having a good performance in the experiment. Thirteen (13) individuals got a mean of the last achieved score below the average score (0.2) while 42 individuals got a mean of the last achieved score above the average score.
Familiarization through repetition enhanced performance in writing the alphabet backwards. On the other hand, good performance decreases through hindrances such as time pressure, distractions and disturbances from…...

... Experiment # 1 Laboratory Regulations / Safety and Micropipetting Objectives: 1. To introduce students to lab safety and regulations 2. To introduce students to lab equipment 3. To teach students to use and calibrate micropipetters Materials: Micropipetters, beakers, distilled water and balance A. Introduction of lab safety and regulations. 1. General laboratory safety and regulations will be explained and emphasized. 2. Lab equipment will be introduced. B. Micropipetter Use and Calibration Background: Before you start any type of lab work, it is a good idea to check the accuracy and precision of the micropipetters that you plan to use. A very simple way to do this is by weighing the volume of water actually transferred by a micropipetter at a given setting. Water has a density of 0.9986 g/mL at room temperature, so you can use the mass of the water transferred to determine the accuracy of your pipetter (as long as your balance is reliable of course....), and by repeating the test several times, you can determine the precision of the micropetter as well. Procedure: 1. Using a balance capable of reading in milligrams or lower, tare a plastic weighing boat on the pan of the balance. 2. Set the micropipetter to its maximum capacity and carefully transfer that volume of distilled water to the weighing boat. 3. Repeat the operation at least four times, each time recording the weight of distilled water transferred. 4. Set the......

Unit 2 Research Paper 1: Experiment

...1 Unit 2 Research Paper 1: Experiment By: Freddy Prince Dijor ITT-GS1140 Summer Quarter Mr. Edmundo Zevallos Ezevallos@itt-tech.edu 2 Unit 2 Research Paper 1: Experiment The problem I would like to solve is one that every American driver has experienced. The problem is: how to waste less time waiting at the DMV? There are many possible solutions, but the one I choose to test is: by making all DMV services available online, with only a limited number of physical DMV locations and services available. Modern technology maximizes operations while reducing associated costs. (Hanington, 2012, p.43). The first step in order to test if this solution is appropriate is to look at cost viability. How cost efficient and practical will it be to conduct operations entirely online? Some costs, such as staffing and building utilities will go down, but other costs like web developers and advanced software will occur. I think the data will be in favor of online business. According to the Financial Planning Info Guide, service usage and profitability is higher for online businesses, while the costs for content and production, distribution and service is lower for online businesses than traditional ones (2013). Another step is to test if going completely online is an appropriate solution is to look at the market for it. Surveys and interviews can determine how many DMV patrons are internet savvy, or if the majority of DMV patrons have a preference for online or in-person service....

...Unit 2 Research Paper 1: Experiment Experiment: Drive time in traffic 1. Problem: How can I save time in rush hour traffic in Dallas, TX? 2. Solution: Using Toll Roads or Public transportation. 3. Course of Action: What is the cost variable for the options, Does it truly save time (is it efficient and practical) 4. Steps: • Is it simple and more reliable by car? • What is the average gas price vs price to ride public transportation? • Does it truly save money either way? • Which way is faster? • http://wikitravel.org/en/Dallas Daily individuals try to find ways to save drive time in rush hour traffic. We tried all types of things leave earlier but you lose family time, sleep or do other things to rearrange our daily life schedule. Well the cost option is for riding on the toll roads in gas, paying tolls or public transportation, what is the cost effective. I think the study would show that riding toll roads if the way to go. I say this because even if you ride public transportation it’s not available in every location, so you may still be in some type of traffic getting to your pick up location. Another reason I say toll roads is your can control the routes you go verses public transportation there may not be a direct route. You may have to do transfer from one stop to another and public transportation is only available doing certain hours. The cost may be cheaper for public transportation but, it is still possible you are putting wear and tear on your......

...Experiment 6 Newton’s Second and Third Laws PHY 2091- 01 Experiment Performed : 03/2/15 Report Submitted : 03/20/15 Lab Partner: Nicholas Bautista Instructor: Introduction The experiment determines newton’s second and third laws using real life experiments such as the mass pulley system using the Atwood’s machine and using springs (2) in series and parallel to determine their spring constants and extensions when a mass is hanged from them. Newron’s second law states that the force on an object is directly proportional to the rate of change of momentum, which later gives the formula F =ma , m= mass and a is acceleration. Newton;s third law suggests that every action occurring on an object has an equal and opposite reaction when they occur in pairs, are acting in opposite directions and has same magnitude. In part one, we measure the acceleration of the mass pulley system using the photo gate. Data M1 = 151.25 g M2 =171.25 g Mean acceleration = 0.5992 m/s^2 Standard deviation 0.05463 Data Analysis Part 1 (Atwood’s Machine) – Formula and calculation of theoretical acceleration (ath) – A =(m1-m2)/(m1+m2) * g , ath= (0.17125-0.15125)/( 0.17125+0.15125)* 9.79 = 0.6083 m/s^2 % error = 0.05463/0.5592 *100 =9.76 % Formula and calculation of percent difference between ae and ath – % difference = (difference / A_th) *100 = (0.55992-0.6083) /0.6083 *100 =8.01% Part 2 (Springs in Series) – Hooke’s law equation –...

...Examine the reasons why some sociologists choose not to use experiments when conducting research. 20 Scientists set out to discover scientific laws of cause and effect. The method favoured by natural scientists for discovering these laws is the laboratory experiments take place in labs are considered more artificial. In this essay I will conclude the reasons why experiments are not used to evaluate research. In addition the field and the comparative method will also be outlined as wells as their strengths and limitations which is used by sociologists in their research. Field experiments takes place in real social world. positivist sociologists use laboratory experiments as they favour a more scientific method. Positivist sociologists however also acknowledge the short comings of laboratory experiments, such as, it is often impossible or unethical to control the variables. Also their small scale means that results may not be representative or generalisable to the wider population. On the other hand interpretivists reject  the laboratory experiments because it fails to achieve their main goal of validity. It is an artificial environment producing unnatural behaviour.  There are various practical problems with laboratory experiments. Society is VERYhttp://cdncache-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png complex and in practice it would be impossible to control variables that may influence a situation.

...EXPERIMENT 11: DETERMINATION OF DISSOLVED OXYGEN IN A WATER SAMPLE (WINKLER METHOD) INTRODUCTION In an alkaline solution, dissolved oxygen will oxidize manganese(II) to the trivalent state. 8OH-(aq) + 4Mn2+(aq) + 2H2O(l) --> 4Mn(OH)3(s) The analysis is completed by titrating the iodine produced from potassium iodide by manganese(III) hydroxide. 2Mn(OH)3(s) + 2I-(aq) + 6 H+(aq) --> 2Mn2+(aq) + I2(aq) + 6H2O(l) Sodium thiosulphate is used as the titrant. Success of the method is critically dependent upon the manner in which the sample is manipulated. At all stages, every method must be made to assure that oxygen is neither introduced to nor lost from the sample. Furthermore, the sample must be free of any solutes that will oxidize iodide or reduce iodine. Chemicals: Manganese(II) sulphate solution – prepared by dissolving 48 g of MnSO4.4H2O in water to five 100 cm3 solution; alkaline potassium iodide solution—prepared by dissolving 15 g of KI in about 25 cm3 of water, adding 66 cm3 of 50% NaOH, and diluting to 100 cm3; concentrated sulphuriv(VI) acid; 0.0125 M sodium thiosulphate solution; starch solution (freshly prepared). Apparatus: 250 cm3 volumetric flask, 250 cm3 conical flask, measuring cylinders, titration apparatus, magnetic stirrer Procedure: 1. Use a 250 cm3 volumetric flask to collect water sample. Fill the flask completely with water without trapping any air bubbles. 2. Add 1 cm3 of manganese(II) sulphate solution to the sample using a......

The previous owners landscaped part of the backyard, but she would like help in landscaping the rest of it. Andy has the potential to be a great landscaper, but isn’t very good at math and will need Jourdan’s help before he can get started. Jourdan’s yard is 200 feet long, and its width is 75% of its length. The portion of her yard that does not need to be landscaped is along the shortest part of the yard and is 10% of the width of that part of the yard. Jourdan would like to put in grass, but does not want it to take up more than 1/25 of the space in her yard (space is in ft2). What is the largest area the grass can take up? If Jourdan’s grass takes up that much space and each grass piece 4ft wide, how long are they? Jourdan would like to add some brick to her patio. If each of those bricks is 6 inches long 3 inches wide. She only needs to cover 15 square feet, how many bricks does she need? We have discovered that the length of her yard is 150 feet. She will not need to landscape 15 square feet. 120 square feet of yard space will be covered in grass. Each piece of that grass is 30 feet in length. The last part of her landscaping will include laying down some brick and we found out that she will need 10......

The Experiment

...The Experiment (2010) The Experiment is a thriller based upon a psychological study, ‘’Stanford Prison Experiment’’ conducted in 1971, where men are chosen to participate in the roles of guards and prisoners. Paul T. Scheuring, who also wrote the screenplay, directed the movie. The Experiment is a remake of the German movie Das Experiment (2001) both of which are loosely based on the novel Das Experiment – Black Box (1999) by German writer and actor Mario Giordano. Besides writing the book Giordano wrote the screenplay for Das Experiment. The movie is about an experiment that goes wrong. We follow Travis, a regular guy who gets fired and therefore says yes to participate in an experiment in exchange of money. For about a week he is being tested with a lot of others men. In this experiment-center he is asked about his past, his present and his future. So is everyone else. He then has to sit in a tiny, dark room with a slideshow of gruesome pictures and video clips. Thereafter 26 men are selected to be participate and are taken to the prison where they are given the roles of guards and prisoners. Here the participants are given five rules. Guards were informed that those prisoners who break the rules must be punished commensurately. The experiment is on for about six days until the prisoners finally tries to escape which leads to a big fight between the guards and the prisoners. Finally the red lights come on, the gates open and the experiment is over. The......

...Experiment 1 Title: Standardization of potassium permanganate solution by ammonium iron (II) sulphate Name: Toh Zi Xin Name of partner: Wong Jing Hui, Gan Chun Yiang, Wong Teck Jun Date: 17.6.2015 Lecturer: Dr. Neo Kian Eang Practical class: P4 Introduction: Potassium permanganate solution can be standardized by titration against a standard solution of ammonium iron(II) sulphate solution. This is an example of standardization, which is a process to determine the concentration of a solution by using it to titrate another solution which have a known concentration. This titration is known as redox titration as the titrant, which is the potassium permanganate is a strong oxidizing agent. The ammonium iron (II) sulphate solution is measured by using a pipette and transfer it into a conical flask while the potassium permanganate solution is placed in a burette. The ammonium iron (II) sulphate solution is made acidic by adding dilute sulphuric acid. Potassium permanganate solution is dark purple colour because of the presence of permanganate ions, MnO4- . Since potassium permanganate is a strong oxidizing agent, it can oxidizes iron(II) ions to iron(III) ions. Fe2+ Fe3+ + e- On the other hand, the Mn7+ ions of the dark purple colour permanganate ion, MnO4- are reduced to colourless Mn2+ ion. MnO4- + 8H+ + 5e- Mn2+ +4H2O As a result, the overall ionic equation is: MnO4- + 8 H+ + 5 Fe2+ →......

...priority in a causal relationship (cause precedes effect) There is consistency in a causal relationship (a cause will always lead to the same effect) The magnitude of the correlation is great. (Reference: en.wikipedia.org) The word experimental research has a range of definitions. In the strict sense, experimental research is what we call a true experiment. This is an experiment where the researcher manipulates one variable, and control/randomizes the rest of the variables. It has a control group, the subjects have been randomly assigned between the groups, and the researcher only tests one effect at a time. It is also important to know what variable(s) you want to test and measure. A very wide definition of experimental research, or a quasi experiment, is research where the scientist actively influences something to observe the consequences. Most experiments tend to fall in between the strict and the wide definition. A rule of thumb is that physical sciences, such as physics, chemistry and geology tend to define experiments more narrowly than social sciences, such as sociology and psychology, which conduct experiments closer to the wider definition....

...SIMPLE SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS HANS JURGEN PRESS 1. Astronomy Image of the Sun Place a pair of binoculars in an open window in the direct path of the sun’s rays. Stand a mirror in front of one eyepiece so that it throws an image of the sun on to the opposite wall of the room. Adjust the mirror until the image is sharp, and darken the room. You would risk damaging your eyes if you looked directly at the sun through binoculars, but you can view the bright disc on the wall as large and clear as in the movies. Clouds and birds passing over can also be distinguished and. if the binoculars are good even sunspots. These are a few hot areas on the glowing sphere, some so big that many terrestrial globes could fit into them. Because of the earth’s rotation, the sun’s image moves quite quickly across the wall. Do not forget to re-align the binoculars from time to time onto the sun. The moon and stars cannot be observed in this way because the light coming from them is too weak. 2. Sun clock Place a flowerpot with a long stick fixed into the hole at the bottom in a spot, which is sunny, all day. The stick’s shadow moves along the rim of the pot as the sun moves. Each hour by the clock mark the position of the shadow on the pot. If the sun is shining, you can read off the time. Because of the rotation of the earth the sun apparently passes over us in a semi-circle. In the morning and evening its shadow strikes the pot superficially, while; it midday, around 12......
