Re: Protein Modeling C

How do we figure out what to do /what are you guys modeling for our add-ons? I know last year it was zinc ions and DNA but beyond the active sites for this year I can't find anything. I've searched the RCSB PDB and waded through scholarly articles and haven't found very much.

Re: Protein Modeling C

Sorry- forgot to mention that I'm using the online environment. Hovering/clicking doesn't work, hm.

Re: Protein Modeling C

I have the helices colored red on jmol. Now, how do I see which amino acids they are? :(

Re: Effervescence Task

Here are my calculations: Vinegar = 5% acetic acid by volume 1 L of Vinegar = 1000 mL of vinegar= 50 mL of acetic acid= 50mL * 1.049 g/mL= 52.49 g of acetic acid Molar mass of acetic acid is 60.05g/mol, so there is 0.874 moles of acetic acid per L of vinegar. There is 1 mole of acetic acid in 1.144 ...

Re: Effervescence Task

There's really no point in getting the balloon to inflate as much as possible, just as long as it inflates (enough to trigger the next task, which can be not very much).

If the balloon is still inflating after it has triggered the next task, would that count as a parallel?

Re: Blocks Task

The walls can cause the next action. But..but.. the STACK has to cause the action. And it's only the last block that's causing the walls to move, so that's still not the stack making anything happen. I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. Will the last block push the walls inwards (towards t...

Re: Effervescence Task

Does anyone know if you can use a stronger concetration of vinegar? like Pure acetic acid? because its still vinegar, its just strong vinegar. Pure acetic acid is really strong; you have to use the fume hood when you use it. Does anyone know what the chemical reaction is? HC2H3O2 + CaCO3 --> ? Oh, ...

Re: Sign Task

I guess you could consider the shape of the balloon. Spheres have the best volume/SA ratio, but so far I've only been able to find foil balloons that are cylindrical. For latex balloons, I hear soaking it in boiling water helps loosen it up + increase diameter, and reduce weight by cutting the bit t...

Re: Sand Timer Task

Hmm, so say I used the sand coming from the sand timer to spin a "water" wheel for my circular to linear task. The sand timer bonus would stop as soon as the wheel started spinning, right?

Re: Tasks & Scoring

Hmm, rule change? 6l seems to say that you don't get the 250 points if you go over time. Was it like this last year?
