Abstract This experiment determined the amount of sugar (in grams) in a can of Coke by calculating the density. Per the nutrition information on a can of Coke, there are approximately 39 g sugar per can of coke (355 mL). The presence of sugar in Coke results in Coke being denser than Diet Coke. Five different sugar solutions were prepared with varying amounts of sugar. A calibration curve was used to determine the relationship between the amount of dissolved sugar and the density of the sugar water solutions. The mass and density of sugar in the coke was closest to the 51.824 g sugar solution or the 5.702 g sugar.

Introduction The purpose of this experiment was to determine the mass in grams of sugar in a can of Coke. Per the nutrition information on a can of Coke, there are 39 g sugar in a 355 mL can. Density can be calculated by dividing mass by volume. The masses of Coke and Diet Coke have two different masses because sugar is present in Coke and not in diet Coke. The presence of sugar
