Pooja Dutta ID #: 15132955 CHEM 262 Section: 5BD Infrared Spectroscopy Aim The objective of this lab was to create IR samples and obtain IR spectra of solid and liquid compounds. IR is usually used to determine the functional groups in an unknown molecule. Thus, this further helps elucidate possible structures for the organic compound. Once molecules are excited, their vibrational frequencies, bending, and stretching are measured to determine the functional groups in the presence of infrared ra

Over the life of the project virtually every aspect of DNA sequencing was improved. It took the project approximately four years to sequence its first one billion bases but just four months to sequence the second billion bases. During the month of January, 2003, 1.5 billion bases

Sir Philip Sidney The history of English criticism, like that of English literature, divides itself roughly into three periods. The first is the period of the Elizabethans and of Milton; the second is from the Restoration to the French Revolution; the third from the Revolution to the present day. Elizabethan critics run side by side with those of the early Greeks. It is doubtless true that the Elizabethan critics give a partially larger space to the more technical sides of the subject than thei

We plan to examine some segments of this system, namely the media and the criminal justice system, exposing injustices burdening minorities in America. The media, in particular broadcasting news, has catered to stereotypes of non-whites by over-representing minorities as the assailants in violent
