Algal Vinaigrette: The Effects of Different Vinegar Concentrations on Algae Growth

Brandon Vessar, Zach Vineyard, Alicia Williams, Caitlin Cobbs


Algae is a vital part of the ecological respiratory system to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. But, the rapidly changing global environment makes it difficult to maximize the effects of algae as the cell count is decreasing. By understanding the optimal levels of temperature and pH, we can help control the water environment to maximize algae’s effect. By using vinegar, we are able to isolate the effect of increasing pH levels on the environment and observing the changes in algal cell count.
