    2297 Words  | 5 Pages

    Energy content is an important property of food. The energy your body needs for running, talking, and thinking comes from the food you eat. For this project I conducted an experiment on different kinds of nuts in which I aimed to determine how much energy were stored in these nuts. The experiment was executed by burning these nuts to heat up a container of water and calculating the change in temperature that takes place. Using the change in temperature, one could calculate the amount of energy set

    Investigate the Effect of Moisture Content on Wheat Grain Seed's Respiration Rate HYPOTHESIS: There will be a positive correlation between moisture content of wheat grains and their respiration rate. Therefore as the moisture content (independent variable) increases so will the respiration rate (dependent variable). The rationale behind the hypothesis came from studying photosynthesis in plants. During the light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis, the photolysis of water (H2O) occurs inside
