About Me:

My name is Adam, I'm a freshman at PHS. I play sports for my school.

Pin Oak:

The name of my tree is Pin Oak, its Scientific name is Quercus palustris Muenchh. The trees its related to are the Red Oak, White Oak, and the Live Oak. The Pine Oak is also Deciduous, its simple, alternate and is pointed. 3 distinguishing characteristics of the leaf or the tree is that its 4" to 6" long, the bark is a light gray-brown, and its smooth for many years. Now Finally the specific uses for my tree is that its used for fence posts, fuel, and general construction.

Sassafras:

The name of my tree is Sassafras and its Scientific name is Sassafras ablidum. Other trees its related to are the Sassafras tzumu, hesperia, and randaiense. The ablidum is Deciduous, its simple, alternate, and is pointed. 3 distinguishing characteristics of the leaf or tree is that its 4" to 6" long, Its has blue berries and is 2 and 3 lobed. My tree is used for making tea, perfumes, and oilsRennes_ParcOberthur_Sassafras_albidum.jpg.

Biomolecules in Foods:



1. I tested a Potato, and it was absent in sugars, fats and oils, but present in starch and protein. As a group we discussed the results of my food the potato and the results are above. We had a discussion about the protein’s result and the potato indeed has protein especially in its skin.
2. Sugars are present in Fruit, but are absent mostly absent in meats, vegetables, and egg yolks/whites. Protein are present meats, vegetables, and egg yolks/egg whites. Fats is present in meats, fruit, vegetables, and egg yolk/egg white.

4. I thought there would be more sugars in meats but there was nearly all with out sugars, and I also thought there would be more fat in the egg yolks/ egg whites.


5. Based on my research I found that there is nearly no fat in fruits, and in some test there was a lot of fats in fruits, which wouldn’t make sense since fruits’ sugar isn’t supposed to harm you, but instead give you energy.

Cheek Cell Homework

No not everyone had the same extraction results. Its like that because maybe someone might have not scraped there teeth to get the cheek cells resulting in less cheek cells. The amount of DNA is affected by a number of different things like eating which causes saliva and DNA.




To do DNA replication first the hydrogen bonds breaks by using Helicase. Helicase is a enzyme that breaks down DNA. The second thing it does is it attaches the single stranded binding proteins to keep the strands from coming together. The third step of the DNA replication is the primase attaches to together.
