defoam: Height of solution with defoamer

Description Format Details References Examples

Description

The height of a solution containing a “defoamer” in a 50-ml graduated cylinder after being heated to a particular temperature.

Format

A data frame with 27 observations on the following 4 variables.

conc

concentration of defoamer - a factor with levels L < M < H

pH

pH of defoamer - a factor with levels L < M < H

temp

temperature of defoamer - a factor with levels L < M < H

height

height of solution in the graduated cylinder

Details

A defoamer is a product that controls the formation of foam in industrial processes such as one might find in the food industry.
