Abstract In summary of this lab, a piece of Wrigley’s Spearmint gum was taken and measured before and after being chewed to study if any weight change occurred. The intent of this experiment was to prove that chewing on a piece of gum should not change the original weight of the gum. The findings of this procedure included the use and digestive function of saliva as its enzyme- amylase worked to break down some starches in the gum. Specific Tasks of the Lab Hypothesis: If the gum is chewed, then the weight of the gum would remain the same. Materials: 1 piece of Wrigley’s Spearmint gum Old school scale measurer Timer Plan: 1. Find scale zero 2. Weigh gum in wrap in grams (before chewed) and subtract scale zero for accuracy 3. Remove wrap from gum 4. Set timer for 2 minutes and commence to chewing the gum 5. Stop and eject chewed gum back onto the wrap 6.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
