Bomb Cal.

The purpose of this experiment is to examine the temperature change with time.


  • Benzoic acid
  • Oxygen cylinder
  • Isothermal bomb calorimeter
  • 2L volumentric flask
  • 25°C water bath
  • 1mL pipet


Refer to the following procedure: "Bomb calorimetry: The energy of pizza" Stout, Roland P.; Nettleton, Faith E.;Price, Lynn M. J. Chem Educ. 1985, 62, 438-439.

The purpose of this experiment was to learn some of the basics of polymerase chain reactions (PCR) and gel electrophoresis. We analyzed the genotypes of several DNA samples, one obtained from hypothetical crime scene and four from hypothetical suspects.


  • Suspect DNA A through D
  • Crime Scene DNA
  • Thermal cycler


Purpose of this procedure was to use PCR to amplify DNA from crime scene. Reference "Crime Scene Investigator PCR Basics™ Kit" from Biotechnology Explorer™ by BIO RAD.
