Features 13 core lab activities covering the fundamental concepts of physiology, ecology, plant systems and more
Use a temperature sensor and absolute pressure sensor to measure the change in pressure inside a flask of fermenting yeast cells at two different temperatures.
In this activity, students investigate fermentation by yeast cells using an absolute pressure sensor.
Additionally, students will be able to:
- Explain the fermentation process
- Describe the role of yeast cells during fermentation
Students gain experience conducting the following procedures
- Setting up the equipment and work area to measure the change in pressure in a flask as yeast cells undergo the fermentation process
- Measuring the change in pressure inside a flask of fermenting yeast cells at two different temperatures
- Comparing results with classmates to draw conclusions about the effect of temperature on the rate of fermentation of yeast
Sensors / Equipment Used:
Allows students to measure Temperature, pH/ISE/ORP, Absolute Pressure & Voltage in one sensor. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
