Experiment Report: Aerobic Fitness Tests Pdhpe Axperiment Report

983 words - 4 pages

Introduction
Aerobic or cardiovascular fitness is the quantity of oxygen transported in the blood from the lungs, and how the efficiently the muscles use the oxygen. Various tests can be used to determine this, such as the beep or pacer test, V02Max test, the step test or the treadmill test. In this experiment, three participants will complete the beep test and the step test.
The beep test is a multi-stage fitness tests, where two markers are placed 20m apart, and participants must run the 20m, at an increasing pace. Each beep signals them to begin running. When the participant has missed three beeps, they must stop and the level they got up to is recorded.
The step test is a less physically demanding test. Participants must step up and down the step for three minutes, at a pace of approximately 25 steps per minute, then sit down for a minute before measuring heart rate.
Materials
· 4 participants
· Pen
· Clipboard
Beep test:
· At least 4 cones
· Minimum 20m tape measure
· Beep test audio file
· Speaker
Step Test:
· Timer
· One 25cm step
· Device to measure heart rate
· Chair
Participants
The three participants are Lacy Smith (aged 15), Penny Sholor (aged 53) and Mia Bosonovski (aged 11). Lacy is very fit, and goes for runs at least three times a week. Penny doesn’t run at all, but goes for walks regularly, while Mia is reasonably fit and runs between once and twice a fortnight.
Procedure
Beep test:
1. Measure out a 20m by 10m rectangle and put cones at each corner
2. Connect beep test audio file to speaker, and turn volume to full
3. Line participants up along the 10m line
4. Press the start button on your audio file
5. At the start of every beep, participants will run 20m to the other cones. From there they will wait until the next beep sounds before running back, and repeating the process.
6. When the participant has missed three beeps, they must stop running, and record the highest level and shuttle they have achieved.
Step Test:
1. Start a three minute timer
2. The participant must step up and down the step for three minutes, at approximately 25 steps per minute
3. After the three minutes is up, encourage participant to sit down. A minute after they have finished, record their heart rate
4. Repeat for remaining two participants.

In the beep test, you can clearly see that Lacy Hackett has the best aerobic fitness. This is shown by her high beep test score. The graphs shows that Lacy’s overall fitness and speed is much higher than Mia’s.
In the step test, both Mia and Lacy recover much quicker than Penny. We noticed that...

Practical Experiment report proving Lenz Law

682 words - 3 pages inconsistent speeds at which the magnet was thrusted in and out of the solenoid. To rectify this, a machine could be used that would give consistent speeds throughout the experiment or the magnet could be dropped from a constant height above the solenoid to reduce ranges in speeds. The readings on the analogue galvanometer, done by eye as the indicator quickly moved up and back down, created room for misreading.Conclusion:Throughout this experiment

Action of Amylase in the Small Intestine-experiment-lab report

530 words - 2 pages the solution in the visking tube into a test tube to test for glucose, glucose was quite visible. This shows that the amylase had actually broken down the starch but hadn't broken it down enough for it too pass through the visking tube.Evaluation: I think that this experiment wasn't well set up in the first place because we had to pour out the visking tube and then it was visible. It should have been visible without us having to pour it out. I think this could have been accomplished if we had given it more time. Maybe also we could have tested the amylase breaking down the starch in different temperatures to see any time differences.

2244 words - 9 pages Abstract:Conjugation is a natural occurring process that involves the transfer of DNA from one cell into another through a physical connection between the cells. In the following experiment, two strains of Escherichia coli bacterial cells (donor F'lac+strs and recipient F-lac-strr) underwent conjugation to produce a transconjugant strain (F'lac+strr). MAC plates and streptomycin were utilized to determine if conjugation had occurred. When plated

Thus we will must repeat the titration experiment with a pH-meter and record the pH of the acid-base solution per milliliter of NaOH added. The results of this part of the experiment will be used as the correct reference in order to determine which indicators change color at a pH
