By: Megan VanMaanen
The purpose of this lab was to determine whether or not Aunt Elda died due to anesthetic complications. The normal amount of anesthesia used in a procedure is under 40%.
Before beginning you need some materials, a graduated cylinder, computer, food coloring, pipet, cuvettets, colorimeter, water, Lab Pro software.
Step 2: Now you're ready to calibrate the Colorimeter.
Step 3: Insert cuvette into the calorimeter & wait for the reading. (keep the data)
Step 4: Continue this process with the 10, 20, 30 etc. cuvette's until all data is collected.
How to Make a Solution
To make a 0% solution you would just have water.
For a 20% solution you would need to add a solute.
To make a 30% you would need to add even more solute to the mixture.
