October 1, 2007 Professor Lloyd Chem 110 Sect. C Determination of Sugars by Density Purpose The objective of the lab was to determine the percent sugar in some commercial products. We did this by plotting the relationship between concentration and density, which was linear. Procedure Refer to pages 13-14 in laboratory notebook for the Determination of Sugars by Density lab. Calculations

Unformatted text preview: and to calculate the percent sugar in commercial products by referring to calculations gathered from experiment, such as the graph we had to make. The results of the experiments were finding that cranberry juice has a 12.57% sugar concentration and Arizona iced tea with lemon has a 11.43% sugar concentration. Possible sources of error could be not reading wrong measurements, not washing the beakers or rinsing the pipette between readings. I also accidentally dumped out my first batch of solutions and needed to make a new batch in order to proceed with the experiment. I discarded my original data for the sugar solutions because I had dumped them out and no longer had those solutions to use for the remainder of the experiment....
