Larry, Nataly, Maria, et al. These look like pre-lab questions to an experiment. All of this is discussed in your notes, in your text, or in your lab manual. Posting here will not get them answered freebie style. If you pose specific questions, tell us what you think, and/or what you don't understand, perhaps we can put you on the right path.
