The Amount of Sugar in a Carbonated Beverage

Abstract The purpose of this lab was to determine the percent of sugar in a solution as well as the percent sugar in a non-diet soda. The experiment was The experiment was carried out by comparing densities of sugar in soda to the density of sugar in solution of water. After the experiment it was found that the manufacturers measurements were accurate.

Introduction
The purpose of this lab was to determine if the information on the nutrition labels was correct for sugar. This lab could be used to find the content of sugar in and flat soft drink. Also companies may use a procedure very similar to find the percent of sugar

Column one shows the amount of water you start with which is 50ml. Column two is the mass of an empty graduated cylinder measured in grams. Colum three is the number of sugar cubes used starting from zero, then adding one until you reach four. Column four is the mass of the sugarcubes from column 3. Column five is the mass of the graduated cylinder, the water, and the sugar combined. Column six is just the mass of the water and the sugar.
