Beers Law Lab
By Ally Schleicher
2.) Some characteristics that seem desirable would be being able to be your own boss. You get to decide what the patient needs and how to take care of them.
3.) Some characteristics that don's seem desirable would be the job being dangerous. You need to make sure that you know how much the patient needs without giving them too much of the drug. You would be the person responsible for the drug administering.
2.) Yes, the amount of concentration of the anesthesia was almost double the recommended amount.
3.) Beer's Law helped me with this lab because it helped to see the amount of light that penetrated through Aunt Elda's anesthesia solution.
Finding Percent Solutions
Solute: the substance which dissolves in a solution.
Solvent: the substance which dissolves another to form a solution.
Solution: a mixture of two or more pure substances.
First you have to decide how much solution you want. In class, we made a 10 mL solution with green food coloring. Next, you have to decide what you want the percent solution to be. My group dealt with a 40% solution. What you have to do is decide whatever your amount is (40%) and take that and divide by 10 (10/4). Take 10-4 and you get 6. You take the solvent and fill the graduated cylinder until you get 6 mL (in this case, the water). Then to finish, you take the solute and fill it the rest of the way until it hits the 10 mL mark (the green dye).
