This is a college project, I opened a thread about that on electro-tech-online.com detailing the things to be done and getting great feedback, spot on advice.
The thread is here : http://bit.ly/GKnO4q
The main points are:
-The heart and brain of it will be a 16F88, it has got an Analog to Digital Converter which is very handy, for I’ll be using an LM135 (temperature sensor) and maybe I’ll have a pressure sensor for volume.
-Aquarium heater & pump. For temperature and agitating the fluid (to increase reaction speed).
All remaining details are in that thread, and I’ll update it when I get some things done.
