My name is Andy, I am a freshman at Punxsutawney Area High School. I play basketball, football and lift. I like to hang out with my friends and watch good movies. I listen to the 70's, 80's, and 90's. I want to become a lawyer when i grow up.


Quaking Aspen

The Quaking Aspen is a deciduous tree. It has a finely toothed serrated margin. It is simple and alternate. The leaves vary in size from 2.5 - 7.5 cm. long. They have a green top and a paler bottom.
The term "quaking" is a term used because of the distinctive clattering noise they make from the breeze. The leaves are heart-shaped of rounded. It is known for its white bark. They wood from the Quaking Aspen is light-weight and strong. It is used for making plywood, boxes, veneer, pallets, animal bedding, matchsticks, toys, beehives, and ice cream sticks.

Liriodendron chinense and magnolias. It's margin is pointed lobed. It is simple and it is alternate. The leaves are four to six inches in diameter with four lobes.
Three distinguishing characteristics of the leaf and tree are that it can grow from 80 - 150 feet. It's diameter is 4 - 6 feet. Lastly, the wood is soft and weak. The wood from the tree is used for boxes, pallets, and fruit containers.

Biomolecules Lab Analysis

  1. The food I tested was ground beef. Simple sugars and starch were absent. Presence of fat and protein were present. Our group discussed the potato and it showed up as absent for sugars and fat but present for protein and starch.
  2. Meats have sugars and starch which are present and fat and proteins are absent.Fruits (apple) have sugars and starch which are present and fat and protein are absent. Vegetables(lettuce) have sugar and strach which are present and fat is absent. Eggs yolks, sugar is absent and starch, fat, and protein are present.

4. The biomolecules found in the avocado surprised me. I did not think that there was fat in an avocado. Also, in one of the experiments sugar showed up as present in the liver. Egg yolk showed up as present for sugar. I would not expect to see fat in any of the fruits because they are healthy and most of them don’t have fat, but some of them showed up with fat.

5. Upon research, the potato is supposed to have sugar present. When we tested a potato is showed up as absent. All fruits have natural sugar in them so every test that showed up absent for fruits is most likely wrong.
