Different liquids containing caffeine and solutes were tested. The different types of liquids were water, tea, Gatorade, and fruit punch. Each person drank one liter of their assigned liquid within several minutes. At 30 min, 60 min, 90 min, 120 min, and 150 min the volume of urine was measured. The results showed that the people who drank tea, which contained caffeine, had the highest volume of urine, 820.5 mL. The people that drank fruit punch had the lowest volume of urine, 582.4 mL.

    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.
