Transcript of Does the Temperature of Water Effect the Growing of a Gummy

The results gathered showed that when the water was colder, the gummy bear became larger; in hot water the gummy bear dissolved. We had 3 trials done for each temperature of water.

Room temperature: Before- 1 and a half. After- 3 centimeters
Boiling: Before- 1 and a half. After- 0 cm
Ice water: Before- 1 and a half. After- 2 and a half
Gummy Bears

The similarities between the three cups of water were similar. The largest difference was the boiling water. It became 0 centimeters after it was boiled. Osmosis can also be included in this experiment. Osmosis is the tendency of a fluid, usually water, to pass through a semipermeable membrane into a solution where the solvent concentration is higher, thus equalizing the concentrations of materials on either side of the membrane.
1.Put ice in 3 glasses of water

2.place 1 gummy bear in the ice water you just created for 5 hours

3.After 5 hours remove gummy bear from ice water and measure in centimeters how tall the gummy bear is with a ruler; also record the width in centimeters.

4. Record your data

5. Repeat steps 2-4 in room temperature water.

6. Repeat steps 2-4 in boiling water.

Does the Temperature of Water Effect the Growing of a Gummy Bear?
In this experiment, The temperature of water was being used to show the growth of a gummy bear. The hypothesis was that if the temperature decreased,then the gummy bear will absorb water and become larger. If the temperature increased then the gummy bear will dissolve and become smaller. The purpose of this project was to take house hold delicacies and show how change of state effects them. The change of the size and height is as follows.
-The original size for each gummy was one and a half centimeters.
Boiled: 0 centimeters
Ice Water: 2 and a half centimeters
Room Temperature: 3 centimeters long.
The idea for this experiment came from the longing of food one day after school. Walking downstairs, we stumbled upon sweet, chewy gummy bears. Their was background knowledge already in place, if a gummy bear was soaked in water it grew to be huge. The gummy bears were put in ice water, boiling water, and room temperature water. When we were researching we stumbled upon some information that said, "gummy bear's ingredients are similar to gelatin." "gelatin is known to swell when placed in water.
