I enjoyed the lab very much

I enjoyed the lab very much this week; a lot of the time, we couldn't get correct readings, especially for myself; I was flat-lining a lot of the time. But I especially enjoyed the freedom of being able to create our own trials to determine the underlying process that controls heart rate.

As to class, I find it interesting that one proton can make one atom completely different from one another, can produce something with totally different properties and behavior. I mean, if we created a building out of bricks but we put the bricks in different patterns, it would still be a brick building; but if you put different numbers of protons together in atom, you either get a gas or an alkaline metal or any number of different building blocks. How does that work out, exactly? Why does that happen?
