To determine the effects of water, the samples were immersed in a beaker that has a controlled temperature water. The samples are then stirred continuously until it dissolves. The results are measured by the time when the bioplastics dissolve. BIODEGRADABILITY AND COMPOST TESTING. 33

This test method will determine the rate of biodegradability and decomposition of the biodegradable plastic bags. The plastic strips will be buried in a soil. It will be unearthed for a week. Their final dimensions and results will then be recorded. Statistical Tool and Treatment of Data The statistical tool that will be used in this study is inferential statistics . In inferential statistics, data are analyzed from a sample to make inferences in the larger collection of the population (Ali, S. Z. & Anaesth, B. B., 2016). The purpose of this statistical tool is to answer or test the hypothesis which is to test if cassava starch is a good alternative to biodegradable plastic bags. 34

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
