Why Did Aunt Elda Die?
Did Anesthesia Kill Her?
How did we figure this out?
We all made samples of "anesthesia" with a certain amount of solute and solvent. To make a solution of 30%. Let's say that you add 3 ML of solute to the mixture, and 7 ML of solvent, you would then have a 30% solution of whatever materials you are using.
We placed the Cuvette's into this machine, and it came out with a number, and the number is the amount of light passing through the liquid.
The colorimeter is hooked up to our computer, which will automatically upload the numbers to our graphs.
What do the different percantages compared to each other?
So what does this data tell us?
We believe that anesthesia is the cause of Aunt Elda's death, for she received more than the healthy amount. She received about a 54% solution of anesthesia, which is far too much for it to be healthy.
