DETERMINATION AND COMPARISON OF APPARENT CUBIC EXPANSITIVITY OF GLYCERINE AND HONEY

This project work investigated the apparent cubic expansitivity of glycerine and honey and they were compared. The mass of glycerine and honey before heating were recorded as 75g both respectively, while after heating they were reduced to 65.50g and 71.00g respectively. The glycerine and honey were both heated on a Bunsen burner. The initial and final tempreture of the liquids were recorded (for glycerine and honey) was 31.00ºC and 99.00ºC for glycerine and 31.00ºC and 100ºC for hon...

THE EFFECT OF TEMPERATURE AND COOKING TIME ON THE PROTEIN CONTENT OF THREE SPECIES OF COWPEA

ABSTRACT The study titled "The effect of temperature and cooking time on the protein content of three species of cowpea" is aimed at determining and comparing temperature effect on the protein content of cowpea. Three different species of cowpea was obtained at tudun wada market. The cowpea sample was cooked at different temperature and cooking time. The cooked sample was oven dried and the protein level of the three sample was determined. The result showed that Vigna textilis (Red...

PROJECT ON CONSTRUCTION AND TESTING OF A LIGHT DIMMER SWITCH

This project (light Dimmer Switch) is base on adjusting the voltage which gets to the lamp. The project use an alternating current as an input at the rate 240v from the socket outlet. The circuit is mainly used to control the desired brightness of the lamp of 100watts, by limiting the flow of current through the lamp by their equivalent resistance, which the capacitor used to store same charges when the variable resistor is varied. The project dimmer switch can be used in so many place...

Circuit and the alarm circuit. The software module include, the programming on plc microcontroller that sends the information to the encoder using C – programming, the ...

The cost of treatment of sickle cell anaemia

ABSTRACTHealth care is a necessity and a basic human need. Households or individuals often derived various strategies to cope with large health expenditure. Sickle-cell Anaemia is the most frequent haemoglobin disorder and one of the world’s greatest cause of morbidity and mortality mostly in sub-Saharan Africa. This research work title the cost of treatment of sickle cell anaemia (A case study of General Hospital Katsina) was carried out in General Hospital Katsina, Katsina state Nigeria ...

Gastric Juice as a Diagnostic Sample

Gastric juice is a digestive fluid formed in the stomach and is composed of hydrochloric acid (HCl), potassium chloride (KCl) and sodium chloride (NaCl). Gastric juice analysis is performed by measuring and assessing the contents of a fasting patient’s stomach for acidity, appearance and volume; results from this test may help evaluate suspected peptic ulcer, severe gastritis, Zollinger-Ellison (Z-E) syndrome, H pylori and gastric cancer. However, X-rays and other studies are recommen...

ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF HONEY ON Streptococcus pyogenes, Escherichia coli AND Staphylococcus aureus ISOLATED FROM BURN WOUNDS OF PATIENTS ATTENDING ST. MARY’S HOSPITAL LACOR

The growing threat and spread of antibiotic resistance by a wide range of common pathogens has led to increased investigations into traditional medicinal plants as alternatives. Honey has been used as a medicine since ancient times in many cultures and is still used in ‘folk medicine’. The moist environment of chronic wounds is an ideal growth medium for bacteria thereby causing delay in healing. Honey is commonly used as a topical antibacterial agent in most cases to complement th...

Frequency Distribution of Hemoglobin Variants and Rhesus Blood Groups Among Pregnant Women

Hemoglobin variants, ABO and Rhesus blood groups vary from one population to another. The study was  designed to sample pregnant women population from Ayetoro community of Ogun state, Nigeria, for the purpose of updating information on the prevalence of abnormal hemoglobin variants, ABO and Rh blood groups and compare the results with previously published data. Hospital records of recruited pregnant women were sorted out for the determination of the prevalence of hemoglobin variants, ABO and...

HISTOPATHOLOGICAL FEATURES OF JOINT DESTRUCTION IN RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS (RA)

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a long-term autoimmune disorder that primarily affects joints. It typically results in warm, swollen, and painful joints. Most commonly, the wrist and hands are involved, with the same joints typically involved on both sides of the body. The disease may also affect other parts of the body. This may result in a low red blood cell count, inflammation around the lungs, and inflammation around the heart. Fever and low energy may also be present whose symptoms c...

MANAGEMENT OF JAUNDICE IN NEONATES

ABSTRACTJaundice occurs in most newborn infants. Bilirubin is the main cause of jaundice. Bilirubin which is responsible for the yellow colour of jaundice is a normal part of of the pigment released from the breakdown of ‘used’ red blood cells. Most jaundice is benign, but because of the potential toxicity of bilirubin, newborn infants must be monitored to identify those who might develop severe hyperbilirubinemia and, in rare cases, acute bilirubin encephalopathy or kernicterus. The focu...
