  • Experiment to Measure the Concentration of Two Sugars

    649 Words  | 3 Pages

    Soda, candy, sweets are extremely tasty because of all the sugar they contain. However, not many people know that there are different types of sugar, and one kind of food can have multiple kinds of sugar. Our bodies actually process the types of sugar differently, and with my science project, I will measure the concentration of two sugars; glucose, and sucrose, in different foods and how sucrose is converted into glucose with an enzyme called invertase, just like it would in our bodies. This will

  • Sugar Concentration

    395 Words  | 2 Pages

    Sugar Concentration of Beverages Introduction: Regarding the objective of this lab, five unknown sugar solutions and two beverages were given in order to find the sugar concentrations of each. Concentration is the abundance of a constituent divided by the total volume of a mixture, overall showing how much solute is in a solution. In order to find the concentrations, both substances needed to be weighed and measured and finally have their data plugged into the appropriate formulas for molarity

  • Compare The Concentration Of Balloon Size Over Time For Different Packets Of Sugars

    adding the sugar, the solution went from a clear color to a white color. Foam started coming up. Table 1 illustrates the balloon size over time for different packets of sugars. Table 1: Data and Results for balloon size as time increases. 0 min 5 min 10 min 15 min 20 min 25 min Group 1 Control 0 cm 10.16 cm 15 cm 17.5 cm 18 cm 18 cm Group 2 1 packet of sugar 0 cm 20 cm 23.5 cm 27 cm 30 cm 30 cm Group 3 2 packets of sugar 0 cm 17.5 cm 21.8 cm 27 cm 28.9 cm 31.3 cm Group 4 3 packets of sugar 0 cm

  • The Effect Of Sugar Concentration On Rate Of Fermentation

    1092 Words  | 5 Pages

    The Effect of Sugar Concentration on Rate of Fermentation Aim: To investigate how concentration of sugar affects the production of carbon dioxide. Hypothesis: If the sugar concentration increases, then the amount of carbon dioxide produced will increased. Variables: The independent variable is sugar concentration. This will be changed by using solutions with different amounts of sugar (2%, 6%, 10%). The dependent variable is rate of fermentation, which will be measured by the amount of carbon

  • The Effect of Concentrations of Starch and Sugar Solutions on Synthetic Semi- Permeable Membranes

    644 Words  | 3 Pages

    The Effect of Concentrations of Starch and Sugar Solutions on Synthetic Semi- Permeable Membranes Question: Is dialysis tubing selectively permeable? Hypothesis: If one has dialysis tubing, which is dipped in water, filled with Gatorade and starch and is left for 15 minutes, the sugar in the Gatorade will exit the dialysis and into the water. So the dialysis is semi-permeable. Materials: 16 cm dialysis tubing beaker cylinder test tubes transfer pipettes Gatorade Starch solution     10

    experiment is to investigate the effects of different concentrations of sugar solutions on the rate of osmosis in plant cells. Equipment 5mm borer Knife White Tile Potatoes Beakers Measuring cylinder Stopwatch Sugar solutions Paper towels

  • Effect Of Sugar On Osmosis

    1268 Words  | 6 Pages

    The effect of sugar solutions (%)with different concentration levels on the rate of osmosis in cylinders of potatoes(+/-0.01g) Research question:What is the effect of sugar solutions(%) with different concentration levels on the rate of osmosis in cylinders of potatoes(+/-0.01g)? Hypothesis:The prediction that is stated is if the concentration level of the sugar solution is higher then the mass of the potato cylinders will increase (hypertonic)because of a process known as Osmosis.Osmosis is the

  • Determination of Redusing Sugar Using Dns Method

    2875 Words  | 12 Pages

    production of reducing sugars by acid of carbohydrate cereals powder, jams (total sugar content) and jams (reducing sugar content) were performed in order to study reducing sugar production. The study involved hydrolysis carbohydrate cereals powder and jams by immersing in boiling water at environmental temperature. Acid hydrolysis was carried out through reflux boiling for 20 minutes with 10ml 0f 1.5M concentrations of diluted sulphuric acid. Reducing sugars concentrations were determined by spectrophotometry

  • The Fundamental Process of Turning Sugar in Energy

    1294 Words  | 5 Pages

    One of the most fundamental processes of life is the ability to turn sugar into energy. Our cells have the ability to carry out this process both aerobically and anaerobically. Although anaerobic respiration does not produce the amount of energy that aerobic respiration does; it is still a very important process, because it allows cells to turn sugar into useable energy in the absence of oxygen. (Lab 15: Fermentation Experiments: Background) This is done though a process called fermentation. “Fermentation

    maintain the food quality and to preserve the wholesomeness of the food. It involves dehydration of fruit slices in two stages, removal of water using as an osmotic agent (osmotic concentration) and subsequent dehydration in a dryer where moisture content is further reduced to make the product shelf stable. Osmotic concentration is the process of water removal from fruits and vegetables, because the cell membranes are semi-permeable and allow water to pass through them more
