It was the most recent vitamin to be discovered and in the late 1940s, it was identified as the essential nutrient that caused pernicious anemia, a potentially fatal disease primarily affecting older adults. Vitamin B12 is absorbed after the stomach acid separates B12 from the protein in foods, and then B12 combines with intrinsic factor before being carried to the small intestine, where it is absorbed. Deficiency of vitamin B12 can cause fatigue, depression, numbness and tingling in the extremities (caused by nerve damage), muscle weakness, confusion and memory loss... Folic Acid...

...Acid Rain Article There has been an increase in the percentage of CO2 in the atmosphere thanks to industrial activities and many other human activities that lead to emission of CO2 into the atmosphere. When it rains there is occurrence of acidic rain which is cause by the formation of carbonic acid. There has been an increasing trend from the year 1700 to the year 2007 and further increases are expected in the year 2007. According to Fig 1, the rate at which the PH of rainwater is decreasing is directly proportional to the increase in the volume of CO2 in the atmosphere. In fact is can be noticed that the rate at which the content of CO2...

...ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability) ensures that database transactions are processed in an efficient and correct manner. Atomicity states that any modification to the database must follow the all or nothing rule. Conversely, Consistency states that the only data to be written into the database must be validated. Equally, Isolation states that the concurrent occurrence of multiple transactions should not impact each other’s transactions. Finally, Durability guarantees that any modifications to the database are not lost. Normalization is a method of reducing or removing data...

...acid and nitric acid. Dot diagram of Ethanoic acid. Dot diagram of Nitric acid Nitric acid is stronger than Ethanoic acid Nitric acid is stronger than Ethanoic acid because in nitric acid the oxygen is bonded to nitrogen which has higher oxidation state (+5). Hence, electrons remain attracted toward nitrogen. This attraction creates polarization between oxygen and hydrogen, thus making the oxygen more electronegative. Whereas in the case of ethanoic acid, carbon has less oxidation state (+3) and thus, resulting a weak...
