Primary Productivity – The rate at which organic materials are stored 6CO 2 + 6H 2 O C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6O 2 One can determine Primary Productivity by measuring dissolved oxygen in the water (as it is hard to measure it in the air) Conversion Factors: 1 ml of O 2 = .536 mg of Carbon assimilated To convert: ppm O 2 = mg O 2 /L mg O 2 /L x 0.698 = ml O 2 /L ml O 2 /L x 0.536 = mg carbon fixed/L Fill in the table and Graph Net and Gross Productivity vs % of light Using your data table, what seems to be the trend as the % of light decreases? WHY? Using your data table, what seems to be the trend as the % of light increases? WHY? Where would you say this organism is using as much energy as they are making? WHY? Using your table and graph, explain why most of the time there are bigger plants on land than in the sea? Explain this in terms of evolution % light DO (mg O 2 /L) Gross PP = Bottle – Dark (mg O 2 /L) Net PP = Bottle – Light (mg O 2 /L) Gross Carbon fixed in mgC/L Gross PP x 0.698 x 0.536 Initial 8.4 -- -- -- Dark 6.2 -- -- -- 100% 10.2 65% 9.7 25% 9.0 10% 8.5 2% 7.1

Dilution & pH Review C 1 V 1 = C 2 V 2 C 1 = original concentration of the solution, before it gets watered down or diluted. C 2 = final concentration of the solution, after dilution. V 1 = volume about to be diluted V 2 = final volume after dilution By drawing the " X " through the equal sign and filling in the formula with letters of a size permitted by the borders of the " X ", it reminds you that : for all dilution problems C 1 > C 2, and V 1 < V 2 . It makes sense because to dilute, we add water. This increases the volume but lowers concentration. Examples by Type : 1. Easiest: Joe has a 2 g/L solution. He dilutes it and creates 3 L of a 1 g/L solution. How much of the original solution did he dilute? 2. Joe has 20 L of a 2 g/L solution. He diluted it, and created 3 L of a 1 g/L solution. How did he make such a solution? 3. Joe has 20 L of a 2 g/L solution. To this solution he adds 30 L. What is the final concentration of the solution?

pH Reminder: pH = -log (H + ) Which is more acidic? (H + ) of 1.0 x 10 -8 or 1.0 x 10 -12 Which is more basic? (H + ) of 1.0 x 10 -6 or 1.0 x 10 -3 Stomach acid has a pH of about 1-2. What would the H + concentration be around?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
