Experiment 2 Bevo is Dead Cody Caldwell, Olivia Fouse, Rafael Ruiz Chem111-455 This experiments purpose was to figure out what dilution of ammonium cation killed bevo. We knew that nitrate anion forms ammonium cation when cattle digest it. We were to find which unknown killed bevo based on our serial dilution diphenylamine test color change and nitrate test strip color change. The materials that were used were diphenylamine drops, water, potassium nitrate, 10mL volumetric flask, test tubes, and the analytical balance. We used the analytical balance to weigh out the correct mass of potassium nitrate. We put the potassium nitrate in the volumetric flask the performed serial dilutions until we had diluted to 1ppm, and .5ppm.
