Sugar and Water

By: Semaj Harper, Jordan Carter, India Thomas

Background Info.

I'n this lab experiment the sugar is the solute and the water is the solvent because it's doing the dissolving. We want to set up an experiment to see how quick it dissolves in hot water, ice water, and room temperature water.

Experiment Set-Up

Hypothesis- It will dissolve faster in hot water

Variables- The temperature and the sugar dissolving time

Materials- Sugar, water, and beakers

Procedures-

Step 1: Measure room temperature water

Step 2: Pour room temperature water in beaker and measure the temperature.

Step 3: Measure sugar

Step 4: Pour sugar into the water

Step 5: Stir at a consistent pace

How will you organize your data?- we will put the data in a table

Constants- The amount of water and sugar

Questions- Why is the sugar dissolving?

Organized Data

Room Temperature

50.2 °F: water temperature

25mL: amount of sugar

55mL: amount of water

2:34: time to dissolve

Hot Water-

125.1°F: water temperature

25mL: amount of sugar

55mL: amount of water

1:25: time to dissolve

Ice Cold Water-

35.7 °F: water temperature

25mL: amount of sugar

55mL: amount of water

3:35: time to dissolve

Conclusion

we realized that sugar dissolves faster in hot water. the hypothesis that we had put down was supported with the experiment with hot water and the sugar. we learned that it takes the longest when its in the coldest water.
