Research Question:
What is the effect of temperature on the sugar content of soft drinks?
Introduction:
When we learnt about Carbohydrates in the Option B chemistry class, we learnt about the disaccharide sucrose, also known as the table sugar we know. We got into a lengthy conversation on the health benefits and hazards of this sugar and in doing so, we factored in the wide intake of soft drinks around the world especially Coca-Cola that my teacher described as very sugary. I personally enjoy a very cold soft drink. However, I once had to buy a moderately
Procedure to Determine the Sucrose Content of Coca-Cola with Different Temperatures: I filled the measuring beaker with the degassed Coca-Cola I heated/cooled the Coca-Cola to desired temperature I emptied the heated/cooled Coca-Cola into the measuring cylinder I put the hydrometer in the measuring cylinder containing the Coca-Cola I read the ruler at the point where the meniscus is on the hydrometer I recorded the stem emergence reading
