Two copies of Hb S or one Hb S copy with another Hb variant is needed to have the disease expressed (Ashley-Koch et al, 2000). … Read more

Laser spectroscopy

The title page : Lab#2:Laser spectroscopy 2-The Abstract: this work shows contemporary results from spectroscopic investigation on aluminium plasma in air and to generate this plasma we use (LIBS) laser induced breakdown spectroscopy which is a peculiar technique for elemental investigation. The experimentally observed line intensities of naturl aliminuim and their corresponding wave length . … Read more

Effects of dilutions on pH and molarity

Discussion of Results and Scientific Explanation To achieve the goal of determining an unknown acid or base, anion and cation test were performed. These tests allowed for the components of the solutions to be identified, therefore, achieve the second goal. The pH was also used in to help find the identity of the unknown solutions … Read more


The purpose of this assignment is to reflect upon an incident witnessed on a recent clinical placement, and for this I will use the Gibbs (1988) reflective cycle (see appendix 1). Jasper (2003) suggests that reflection is one of the key ways in which we can learn from our experiences. I am currently enrolled on … Read more
