Water Quality and Contamination
1. Develop a hypothesis on which water source you believe will contain the most and least contaminants. Hypothesis = I feels as though the tap water will contain the most contaminants, the bottle water will be sterile. The Dasani water has been treated, Fiji is natural spring water. Dasani will have the less contaminant 2. Based on the results of your experiment, would you reject or accept the hypothesis that you produced in question 1? Explain how you determined this.
I feel as though the Dasani water was the purest. 3. Based on the results of your experiment, what major differences, if any, do you notice between the Dasani, Fiji, and tap water? Answer = I really could not see any difference between the 2 water. 4. Based on your results, do you believe that bottled water is worth the price? Why or why not? Answer = I would always choose bottled water opposed to tap water, Just because I know that the water has been treated.
The price of bottled water does not bother me at all, I feel as though it’s worth it. *NOTE – Do not forget to go to Lab 3: Biodiversity, and complete “Experiment 1: Diversity of Plants” steps 1 through 6. Steps 1 through 6 need to be completed in order to be prepared for Week Three, however, results for this experiment will not be calculated until next week. Thus, while nothing is to be handed in for this experiment until the end of Week Three you must plant the seeds this week to ensure that you can complete week 3 on time.
