CHY 123 Dissolved Oxygen in Maine Waters Introduction O2 levels in water have become a large issue in environmental studies. By knowing what kind of O2 levels are in a given water sample we can determine the water quality. The levels of O2 are important as all animals need O2 to breath and aquatic animals are no different, as they require a certain level of O2 in the water to breath. Temperature plays a large role in this as well as temperature and dissolved O2 levels and inversely proportional. Procedures We gathered the needed chemicals and containers needed for the experiment. We then went to the river and gather 3 water samples from the shore. We then pushed out any unneeded water from the syringes (so they were at 30ml with no air bubbles). We then connected another syringe that contained 5ml of the manganese reagent and mixed the solutions back in forth via the plungers on the syringes. We then forced all the solution into the large syringe, attached another syringe containing 5ml of the basic iodide
