How to Measure Temperature With a Mercury Thermometer

 How To Measure Temperature With A Mercury Thermometer

How to Measure Temperature With a Thermometer


Temperature is one of the important property which tells us so much information about substance or body. With the help of temperature you can predict in which state the material is, is it cool or hot, is it good too touch or not, thermodynamics, and even about humans you can get information like someone is well or suffering from fever etc.

Too measure temperature place tip of thermometer in substance (liquids like water, oil) whose temperature to be measured. Wait for some time. Mercury rises upside and stop rising after some time. This reading at which mercury stop rising is your temperature reading.

You can measure temperature at any scale or convert in any scale like degree Celsius, degree Fahrenheit, Kelvin etc.

Human body temperature can be measured with analog (mercury) or digital thermometer. To measure temperature of human body place thermometer under tongue or armpit. Hold the thermometer their for about 40-50 seconds then see reading on thermometer. In digital thermometer their is generally a beep sound, indicating measurement complete. So you can remove thermometer and see temperature reading on display of digital thermometer.

What are Essential Amino Acids | Definition, Structure, Foods & Infographics | Amino Acids

What are Essential Amino Acids | Definition, Structure, Foods, Infographics | Amino Acids

Definition of Amino Acid

Amino acid is a simple organic compound that contains a carboxyl (—COOH) and an amino (—NH2) group.

What are Amino Acids?

Amino acids are organic compounds containing carboxyl (—COOH) and amino (—NH2) functional group with side chain, this side chain is specific to amino acid. Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen and Nitrogen are some important element which present in amino acids. Some other elements may also present in side chain of some amino acids.

Importance of Amino Acids

As we all know that our body contains large amount of proteins also these proteins play important role in biological processes happening within human body. Amino acids are building blocks of these proteins means proteins contain amino acids.

Amino acids play key role in many body functions like cell structure, storage and transport of nutrients, proper functioning of organs, proper functioning of glands, proper functioning of arteries, proper functioning of tendons, healing of wounds, repairing tissues, removal of metabolic waste etc.

Amino Acids

There are so many amino acids present in nature but gene codes only 20 amino acid. Essential amino acids are type of amino acid which can not produced by human body so they are needed in dietary food. Two amino acids combines by a peptide bond to form dipeptide.

peptide bond

And amino acids further added to grow chain of peptides to form poly-peptide or protein.


Areas of Use of Amino Acids

1. Anti-aging

Supply of amino acids to the body provides repair treatment means nourish human skin, nails and hair result in delay aging process naturally. Supply of amino acids strengthens connective tissue to keep our skin smooth, shine, glowing and elastic. Creatine play very important role to keep skin healthy and this creatine is made up of amino acids like Arginine and Methionine. 

Glutamine amino acid is responsible to regulate acid-base balance as a result it supports healthy skin. Carnitine is a di-peptide containing two essential amino acids lysine and Methionine. Carnitine helps in burning fat to produce energy so also known as fat burner so also added in fitness and wellness program.

2. Arthritis

Amino acid Methionine helps in cartilage formation, also Methionine is essential amino acid so do not get produced within human body but need to be provided from outside i.e. from diet or food. 

Methionine also donates Sulphur which helps in joint cartilage creation. Along with amino acids vitamins and minerals are also required for healthy joints.

3. Cholesterol

Arginine amino acid helps in lowering the cholesterol level.

4. Diabetes

In diabetes person’s blood sugar level get high than normal level due to many reasons like pancreas do not produce enough insulin, insulin resistance etc. Amino acid Arginine help in reducing insulin resistance by increasing sensitivity of our body cells toward insulin so insulin get easily absorbed.

5. Fat Burning

Goal of weight loss is achieved by fat burning. Human growth hormone is an important fat burning hormone and amino acids Arginine, Glutamine and Methionine helps to secrete this hormone.

6. Hair and Nails

Amino acid Methionine prevents hair loss and strengthens nails. Amino acid Glutamine and Arginine increases hair growth.

What is Zwitterions

zwitterion
•    Below pH 2.2 amino acid have net charge of +1 due to the predominant form of amino acid have a neutral carboxylic acid functional group and a positive α-ammonium.
•    Above pH 9.4 amino acid have net charge of -1 due to the predominant form of amino acid have a negative carboxylate and neutral α-amino group.
•    At pH between 2.2 and 9.4 amino acid have net charge of ZERO due to the predominant form of amino acid have both a negative carboxylate and a positive α-ammonium functional group and this molecular state of amino acid is known as a Zwitterion.

What is Isoelectric Point

Isoelectric point is a pH at which molecule carry zero net electric charge. In case of amino acids at pH between 2.2 and 9.4 amino acid have net electric charge of ZERO so this range of pH gives Isoelectric Point of Amino Acids as shown in below image.


List of Amino Acids

Below is the chemistry infographics image of list of amino acids.

list of amino acids


What are Essential Amino Acids

Essential amino acids are amino acids which cannot be synthesized by the human body so these amino acids must be supplied in diet. The nine essential amino acids, which human body cannot synthesize are phenylalanine, Valine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Methionine, Leucine, Isoleucine, Lysine, and Histidine i.e. in one letter for amino acids are as follows- F, V, T, W, M, L, I, K, H.

Six additional amino acids are measured conditionally essential in the human diet. These six amino acids are Arginine, Cysteine, Glycine, Glutamine, Proline, and Tyrosine i.e. in one letter for amino acids are as follows- R, C, G, Q, P, Y.

Five amino acids are not essential in humans because they fully synthesized in the body. These five amino acids are Alanine, Aspartic Acid, Asparagine, Glutamic Acid, and Serine i.e. in one letter for amino acids are as follows- A, D, N, E, S.

List of Essential Amino Acids and Non-Essential Amino Acids

Below is the chemistry infographics image of list of essential amino acids and non essential amino acids.

List of Essential Amino Acids and list of Non-Essential Amino Acids


Amino Acids Structure Images

Below are the structure images of amino acids.





















Foods High in Essential Amino Acids

Essential amino acids are required daily in our diet to live healthy, So it is very important to include food having high amino acids in your diet. 

Amino acids are building blocks of protein. You can get enough essential amino acids by consuming foods rich in protein. Plant foods and animal foods both contain proteins. These given below are some foods name which are the best sources of dietary amino acids-
  • Soybean
  • Legumes
  • Beans
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Mushrooms
  • Grains
  • Vegitables

  • Milk
  • Cheese
  • Yogurt
  • Cottage cheese
  • Turkey
  • Red meat
  • Eggs
  • Seafood
  • Fish
  • Chicken

Hope you enjoy learning of amino acids. You can also explore these interesting science topics-

In this post we will learn about forensic science and forensic drug chemistry. Also learn about fathers of various fields of forensic science and famous forensic scientists and forensic chemist.

Definition of Forensic Science

Forensic science is the application of scientific methods and techniques to matters under investigation by a court of law. Almost all branches of science may contributes to solve a crime scene, hence comes under forensic science.


Forensic Drug Chemistry

Forensic drug chemistry is the sub-branch of chemistry.  Forensic drug chemistry is used in identification of matter generally illegal drugs. The Forensic chemist examines the samples bring in forensic chemistry lab. Forensic chemist tries to find the name of matter or drug by examining the atoms and molecules in matter. Also find how these atoms and molecules interact and bond with each other. As we know, all matter or drug substance has a chemical signature (Spectrum, that you study under spectroscopy) and or some physical and chemical properties which are unique to only that substance. Forensic chemists use these physical and chemical properties to identify matter or drug substances using scientific techniques or methods. Findings by examining samples are presented as facts in court. Forensic chemistry covers analysis of any matter like illegal drugs, explosives, poisons etc.

 

What does Forensic Scientists and Forensic Chemist do ?

Forensic Scientists examine and analyze evidence or matter obtain from crime scenes. Forensic chemists conduct analysis of matter forensic chemistry. While other forensic scientists do other analysis like fingerprinting, handwriting analysis, DNA, trace evidence examination, fire and explosives examinations, forensic toxicology, digital evidence and many other analysis.  After doing all analysis they develop objective findings that can assist in the investigation and prosecution of person who has done crime or release the innocent person.
