    1. Introduction At a restaurant called Moon's Lake House in Saratoga Spring, New York, potato chip was invented by a chef named George Crum in 1853. Potato chips are thin slices of potato, fried quickly in oil and then salted. It quickly became popular around the world. Manufacturers depend on their stored supplies of potatoes, which are kept at a constant temperature, until several weeks before they are to be used. 2. GENERAL PROCESSING INFORMATION 2.1 Description of Manufacturing Process: 2

    Pass the Potato Chips Has mankind discovered some fantastic substitute for fat to enable people to eat as many snacks as possible without gaining weight? Recently, Proctor & Gamble developed Olestra (sucrose polyester), a zero calorie fat-based substitute, at a cost of $200 million. This product has been approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) with warning labels. What is olestra? The olestra molecule differs from a fat molecule in that it has six to eight fatty acids on

    Investigate the effects of different concentrations of salt solution on potato cells Introduction Osmosis is the way in which many living things take up water (source: GCSE Biology for You). During osmosis, water moves from a dilute solution to a more concentrated solution through a semi-permeable membrane. This membrane allows water molecules to pass through easily, but does not allow solute molecules to do this. The movement of these water molecules gradually

    Osmosis of Potato Chips Introduction For this coursework, I am planning to conduct a series of experiments which will hopefully show me how much percentage change in mass will happen in potato chips when osmosis is present. To find out the change we will have to choose a variable to change. We could change: Ÿ The length of the potato chips. Ÿ The weight of the potato chips. Ÿ The concentration of the sugar solution. Before my final experiment

    Osmosis in a Potato Chip Aim: During this experiment I shall be investigating osmosis in a potato core. I shall also be investigating the effect the concentration of the solution has on the osmosis of a potato core. Possible Input Variables: - concentration of glucose - surface area of potato core - temperature (this however will only effect the rate of osmosis) - variety if potato, vegetable - whether the potato is cooked - what the solute

    GCSE Biology: Osmosis in a Potato Aim To investigate the effect of placing a piece of potato in a given strength of sugar solution. Prediction I predict that, as the solution becomes more concentrated the more the cell will shrink, as the water, of higher concentration inside the potato cells, flows down a concentration gradient into the solution, which has a lower concentration of water molecules. If we say that the percentage change when the potato is placed in the 1M solution is x%. I predict

    no one really knows the in depth explanation. What about more common foods that are a part of everyone’s everyday lives, like potato chips. They are a simple, easy snack food that is commonly in every American household. But does anyone know how they came about, who invented them. Well, let me explain a little about who that person was. The inventor of the first potato chips was a man by the name of George Crum. Crum was an African American man who worked at a lodge in New York as a chef in 1853 (Chamberlain)

    Osmosis of a Turnip and a Potato Chip The problem: I have been asked to investigate why a turnip will taste sweeter than a potato chip. What I am actually been asked to investigate is the effect of varying concentration of a certain sugar solution on the amount of osmotic activity between the solution and a potato chip of a given size. Background Knowledge: Osmosis is a special type of diffusion involving the movement of water molecules through a partially

    Investigating Osmosis in Potato Chips Planning Introduction: the definition of osmosis is the movement of water particles from a weaker solution to a stronger solution through a partially permeable membrane. Aim of investigation: I am trying to find out how external concentration of liquid surrounding a potato chip affects it - does it increase or decrease in mass etc. Method, diagram and equipment: Diagram of experiment Equipment · 5 Boiling
