For the results of the yeast fermentation experiment, fructose showed to be the most  efficient sugar to create CO 2  at the fastest rate. As compared with glucose, fructose showed to  be faster because fructose has a five-membered ring whereas glucose has a six-membered  ring. Because the glucose contained a six-membered ring which is more stable than a five- membered ring of fructose, the five-membered ring will react more readily and produce CO 2  at a  faster rate compared to glucose (Dawson, 1932). Between the two sugars of fructose and glucose, the average rate of fermentation for fructose  was 1.9 mL/min and glucose was 1.453 mL/min. The average rate of fermentation between  glucose and fructose was similar because glucose and fructose have equivalent number of  atoms, similar structures and isomers of each other. Maltose showed to be the slowest among

    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.
