  • Yeast And The Yeast Foods Corn Syrup
    752 words
    Table of Contents Introduction Page 1 Experimentation Page 1 Discussion Page 2 Conclusion Page 2 Acknowledgments Page 2 References Page 3 Introduction My experiment was with yeast and the best food for it. I wanted to know what would make the yeast grow better. I used corn syrup, gelatin, grape juice and flour mixed with water. I thought that the corn syrup, which is high in processed sugars, would produce the make the most carbon dioxide gas. Carbon dioxide is a by-product made when yeast repro...
  • Six Carbon Monosaccharide
    343 words
    Carbohydrate Structure and Function Carbohydrates are molecules composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. They are polymers of the basic units called monnosaccarides. Dissaccharides are compound sugars, composed of two monosaccharides, (simple sugars) bonded together. Molecular Structure For example, two molecules of glucose can bond together to form the Disaccharide Maltose. Sucrose and Lactose are other common Disaccharides. Dissaccharides are formed through condensation reactions that result ...
  • Two Sugar Molecules
    413 words
    There are three principal kinds of carbohydrates and each are classified according to the number of sugar molecules they contain. Monosaccharides, such as ribose, glucose, and fructose, contain only one sugar molecule. Disaccharides consist of two sugar molecules linked covalently. Familiar examples are sucrose (table sugar), maltose (malt sugar), and lactose (milk sugar). Polysaccharides, such as cellulose and starch, contain many sugar molecules linked together. Monosaccharides are organic com...
  • Carbohydrates In The Form Of Simple Sugar
    631 words
    Carbohydrates are a unique kind of compound due to the atoms carbohydrate contain and because of the structure of the compound. To begin a carbohydrates include such compounds as simple sugars and complex starches. This means that there is no set structure for a carbohydrate, but all carbohydrates contain carbon as one of its principle atoms. In fact the name, carbohydrate, indicates the presents of carbon as one of the principal atoms in the compound. Other atoms carbohydrates almost always use...
  • Water And The Table Sugar Solutions
    699 words
    Lab Report: #1 Identifying Carbohydrates Problem: To determine whether a substance contains reducing sugars and / or polysaccharides (two types of carbohydrates) by using Benedict's reagent and iodine stain. Background: Carbohydrates are essential to living organisms, and the principal role of carbohydrates is the production of energy. Carbohydrates are groups of sugars that contain carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen in a 1: 2: 1 ratio. Three main units of carbohydrates are monosaccharides, disacchari...
  • Length And A Strong Sugar Solution
    530 words
    These results show that a potato chip placed in water will gain in length, a weak sugar solution will lose length and a strong sugar solution will lose length also. The results from this test will allow me to choose an appropriate range of moralities in order to find out what the concentration is inside the cell vacuole. I am going to investigate 0.0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8 and 1.0 molar sugar solutions. I have chosen these concentrations to try and accurately find when there is no net movement of w...
  • High Blood Sugar Level
    411 words
    Hyperglycemia, which means high blood sugar level. This is usually over 250. The normal range is 80-120 for a person without diabetes. High Blood sugar is when a diabetic eats too many sugars, with out covering it with insulin. High Blood sugar causes a diabetic to become very tired, they get dry mouth and get very thirsty. This causes frequent urination. This is usually how a person is diagnosed with Diagnosed with diabetes. If you have constant high blood sugar, you will start to lose weight. ...
  • Sugar Juice
    430 words
    Most sugar some's from sugar cane, about 55%. Sugar cane is a kind of grass that grows to the height of about 16 feet. It can only grow in tropical regions near the equator. It is usually cut by hand with machete. It is then taken to plants to be refined. They start by pressing the cane to extract the juice, and then boiling the juice until it begins to thicken and sugar begins to crystal liz, then spinning the crystals in a centrifuge to remove the syrup, producing raw sugar. They then ship the...
  • Two Molecules Of D Glucose
    2,471 words
    Monosaccharide also called SIMPLE SUGAR, any of the basic compounds that serve as the building blocks of carbohydrates. Monosaccharides are polyhydroxy aldehydes or ketones; that is, they are molecules with more than one hydroxyl group (-OH), and a carbonyl group (C = O) either at the terminal carbon atom (aldose) or at the second carbon atom (ketose). The carbonyl group combines in aqueous solution with one hydroxyl group to form a cyclic compound (he mi-acetal or he mi-kemal). Monosaccharides ...

He was adopted by his father ad given his name when he was baptized in St. Louis Cathedral by Pere Antoine. Rillieux's intelligence was noted at an early age by his father who decided he would send Norbert to school. Since the law (The Black Codes) stated that white people would not allow Blacks to be educated i...
  • Concentration Of Sugar In Potato Cells
    1,140 words
    Aim: To find out the concentration of sugar in potato cells. Plan: Background science: Osmosis is diffusion of a special kind. It is diffusion of water across a semi-permeable membrane. Osmosis is very popular in plant cells. Osmosis works in plant cells because the cell membranes of the plant cells are partially permeable membranes. The cell sap inside of the vacuole is the strong solution. Therefore the water diffuses into the plant cell by osmosis and weakens the cell sap. Potato cells are al...
