  APPLICATION OF DIFFERENTIAL EQUATION IN RL AND RC CIRCUIT ANALYSIS BY CLASSICAL METHOD
By Celestine C. Chime

The paper deals with the analysis of RL and RC circuits by using linear ordinary differential equation of first order. Two circuits that consist of a single closed loop containing a resistor(R) and either a capacitor(C) or an inductor(L) connected to a power source ( or voltage source ) in series will be analyzed. Applying Kirchoff laws on ...

  HYPOLIPIDEMIC AND ANTI-ULCERATIVE EFFECTS OF CINNAMOMUM TAMALA (NEES.) (BAY LEAF) EXTRACT ON HYPERLIPIDEMIC AND INDOMETHACIN-INDUCED GASTRIC ULCER IN MALE WISTER ALBINO RATS
By Rita Oze,Gabriel Oze, Obijuru Tobias, Agomuo E. Emmanuel

Cinnamomumtamala leaf (Bay leaf) is a natural spice usually preferred because of its food flavor and perceived medicinal values. This study investigated the effect of aqueous bay leaf extract (BLE) on hyperlipidermia and gastric ulceration using male Wister strain albino rats. Forty two male rats weighing 150-200g, were fed with high fat diet (HFD) for 10 days. Hyperlipidemia was established. The...

  DETERMINATION OF CARBONDIOXIDE AND METHANE CONCENTARTIONS ALONG NWORIE RIVER, IMO STATE, NIGERIA
By Verla Andrew Wirnkor, Anyanwu Ogechi, Verla Evelyn Ngozi

This study investigated the concentration of carbondioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4), temperature and relative humidity on wetlands along Nworie River in Owerri. Data were collected from field survey of six sampling points on the wetlands using handheld AZ 77535 CO2 analyzer and JCB4 gas analyzers. The results showed maximum mean concentration of 703.71 ppm at point A and minimum mean concentration...

  EXTENSION OF THE SHELF LIFE OF LOCALLY BREWED SORGHUM BEER USING Vernonia amygdalina (BITTER LEAF) EXTRACT
By Uzomba N. I., Odu D. A., Ajah O., Uzomba C. N., Amaralam E. C., Nwaeze E. U. C.

Locally brewed sorghum beer is an indigenous alcoholic beverage. It is produced mainly from sorghum grains (sorghum vulgare). The process of brewing involves malting, mashing, souring and fermentation. In this study, bitter leaf (Vernonia amygdalina) extract was used as a means of extending the shelf life of locally brewed sorghum beer which has short shelf life. Chemical and microbial analysis...
