Energy of a Peanut
In this experiment, we uses a Calorimetry technique to identify the heat of combustion of a peanut and a marshmallow. Using a less complicated version of your calorimeter, all of us will lose a peanut. First all of us measure the almond, and after burning we can measure the waste materials product left after the burning of the peanut. We can measure the amount of water that melted due to the heat produced by the peanut and the marshmallow. This try things out will show us how various calories are actually in the foods we eat rather than the amount of calories listed on the label. Guide:
Using a simpler version in the calorimeter, all of us will try to look for the amount of calories in a peanut and a marshmallow. The peanut will create even more energy the fact that marshmallow because of the fat articles of the almond as opposed to the marshmallow. We can measure this in calories which is the high temperature necessary to raise you gram of pure water 1 degree C. We have a " calorie consumption per gramвЂќ on the labeled of each item and we are also testing to see if those will be true. Fat per gram for the marshmallow will be 3. a couple of cal/g. fats per gram for the peanut happen to be 6 cal/g. Materials and Methods:
The materials necessary for the test are peanuts, marshmallows, a beaker with ice, line to hold marshmallow and peanut, lighter, graduated cylinder, and a metal stand. Initial we will certainly set up an easy calorimeter. We all will hold a beaker having a metal stand over the peanut that is to be burned. We will place ice inside the beaker to hold the beaker from gripping, riveting the heat produced by the almond or marshmallow. This way we can get a more accurate measurement with the heat released by the peanut. We will likely then take a almond and consider it. This is so we know the mass before and after and therefore are able to determine the amount of the peanut that was burnt. We will then light the peanut make the beaker of glaciers over the burning peanut. When the peanut is totally burned, in that case we is going to weigh the remained charcoal. Initial...
