BIOL 1208 Results Worksheet Name: Michael Miller Group Member: Lab Topic: How does change in pH affect the reaction of benzoquinine and catechol? 1. What is your hypothesis? I believe that a buffer with a lower pH will increase the reaction rate of benzoquinine and catechol. 2. What is the null hypothesis? Different buffers with different pH levels will not speed up or slow down the reaction rate of benzoquinine and catechol. 3. What is the alternative hypothesis? Different buffers with different pH levels will either speed up or slow down the reaction. 4. What were the main trends or patterns in your data?

Unformatted text preview: If the pH level of the buffer was lower or higher than seven, the reaction rate would slow down. 5. What are the important results relative to your hypotheses? It turned out that our optimal pH for speeding up the reaction was a pH level of seven, therefore proving my hypothesis wrong. In our other buffers we had pH levels of three and eleven. The buffer with a pH of three actually caused the solution to have a negative concentration, and the buffer with a pH of eleven had a positive but still very low concentration....
