The Smart Wireless Colorimeter and Turbidity Sensor can be used to investigate a range of diverse scientific experiments:

  • Rates of chemical reactions: determination of the rate and order 
  • Finding the value of an unknown concentration by the Lambert-Beer Law
  • Investigations with enzymes: effects of temperature pH, inhibitors, enzyme kinetics 
  • Quantitative determination of biological molecules – sugars, protein, vitamins 
  • Quantitative determination of inorganic ions – nitrate, phosphate, chlorine, bromine 
  • Population growth of micro-organisms 
  • Cleanliness measurements of water
  • Dosing biomass growth
  • Algae bloom
  • Phytoplankton development
  • Sediment erosion
  • Mud and silk deposition post storm activity

Example Data:

1. Demonstrating Turbidity Development: Sodium thiosulphate and hydrochloric acid, monitored using the turbidity function. The reaction produces a deposit that develops in time.   

2. Demonstrating Reaction Rates: Sodium thiosulphate (variable) and hydrochloric acid Reaction, monitored using the colorimeter. 

3. Storm surge turbidity measured days following the event.
