In other undeveloped countries the one source of water to survive is being contaminated be nearby mine tailing. Once the interests of the miner are extracted such are gold the mines are simply abandoned. Thus causes disease such cancer to spread through the human race. This experiment will help clean contaminated water and lower the percentage of disease. The main point of this project is to observe if algae can bio-extract the toxic lead from the water and which algae can extract the most. First I must collect as many containers as algal presented in this project, spring water, and a conductivity meter. Calculate all the mass of 0.001 Pb (No3)2 and in V=10mL of distilled water and the dilution. Insert the mass of 1mL of 0.001 Pb (No3)2 and in V=10mL of distilled water, 89 mL of spring water, and 10 mL of each sample of Algal into a container. Find the conductivity of spring water, spring water with Pb (No3)2 and spring water with algal. Next, collect new data every seven days and continue collecting data for two months and observe changes. Last dissect algal in each container and observe any change and collect conductivity for two months.
