recording the values for Commons Stream we then rinsed off the probe in distilled water, dried it off with kimwipes, then repeated the same process for the Stadium Stream Sample. We also included a sample that was solely distilled water to stand as our control. For the phosphates we used the LaMotte Phosphate kit. We placed the samples into test tubes using the transfer pipette and then used it again to add 1.0 ml of Phosphate Acid Reagent. We then capped the tube, waited five minutes then placed the phosphate Comparator directly behind the sealed glass vial. Under the light, we then compared the color of our samples to the Comparator to see which each indicated. Finally, we used the LaMotte Nitrate Nitrogen kit for this test. We used the transfer pipette to transfer enough of each sample until it reached the 5mL line. After, adding one

Nitrate #1 tablet, capping the test tube, and shaking the tube until the tablet disintegrated, we opened the tube and add one Nitrate #2 CTA tablet and repeated the same process we did for the prior tablet. After that we used the colors the samples indicated to arrive to the values and record them.

Results- As you can see by the graphs the results are mixed. In terms of Nitrates, the Stadium Stream Water sample had 4 microsiemens whereas the Commons had 1 microsiemens. The Stadium Stream Water sample had 710 microsiemens whereas the Commons had 1081 microsiemens. Bu thet Stadium Stream Water sample had 0.1 microsiemens whereas the Commons had 0 microsiemens for phosphates. The Nitates and Phosphates both display a similar trend of being higher in the Stadium Stream than in the Commons Stream. However, the Conductivity totally contradicts those results. Discussion-

For the most part our results matched our hypothesis. Stadium Stream, the stream with more human activity, had higher levels of phosphates and nitrates. The only conflict is that the conductivity was difference in which the situation was reversed; there was more conductivity within the Commons stream sample than the Stadium one in this aspect. This could have been due to the fact that the nature in which nitrates and

    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.
