With this investigation, me and my partners performed an try things out to find the different energy material in meals and different numbers of energy released when consumed. Throughout this kind of experiment the procedure was going to take different food trials and use a device known as a calorimeter created from a can of light weight aluminum, one large paper fasteners and a string of copper line to gauge the amount of thermal strength released within a reaction. By measuring the temperature difference before and after a chemical reaction, the calorimeter indicates simply how much energy can be released. Via personal experiences I had recently learned about the discharge of energy via different types of meals samples. For instance , from a previous class we all learned about monosaccharides and how these kinds of carbohydrates often release more energy compared to the energy saving polysaccharides (complex carbohydrates). We have learned some new and interesting facts for instance a dried fruit will not launch as much strength as I might have thought or predicted and several food examples surprised myself with simply how much energy they will released. Purpose
The goal of this experiment is to determine which kind of food samples will release one of the most energy during complete burning.
Which kind of meals releases the most energy per gram during complete combustable?
I really believe that meals samples like the marshmallow and cracker is going to release one of the most energy per gram as they are mostly created from sugar and glucose which tends to discharge high numbers of energy once consumed being that they are monosaccharide's.
