For this experiment, you will be generating the energy necessary to create butter.
- Make a hypothesis stating “Do you think it will take more calories to create the butter than the calories you will get from eating the butter?”
- Complete the lab, following the directions.
- Answer the questions following the lab in the student pages.
- Research and identify the chemical equations of some of the chemical reactions identified in a kitchen.
- How do those equations compare to items that go through a physical change?
- Can you identify the type of change occurring based on the chemical equation?
- Students can compare the difference in the chemical composition of butter to the chemical composition of margarine.
- What are the differences in the ingredients?
- Is there a major taste difference?
- What about the difference in calories?
- How does the change in chemical composition impact the digestion of each food in humans?
