Another person in the lab measured the fat content and disposed of the contents before I could look at the bottle of 32% milk fat, therefore the possibility of a reading error could have occurred, but that is unlikely. Questions: Question 1-A). Cream varies widely in specific gravity, which would change the weight. B) It is viscous so some cream would stick to the pipette. C) Well mixed cream is apt to contain a considerable amount of CO2 and air. Question 2-A) Glymol is a high grade white mineral oil colored red and must have a specific gravity of no more than 0.85. B) The glymol may mix with the cream and fat due to heat. Question 3-A) Tests that contain black material in and under the fat column should be rejected. They are caused by too strong of acid, too warm of acid, too much acid, acid allowed to stand and too warm of cream. B) Tests that contain a white, curdy fat caused by too weak of acid, too cold of an acid, not enough acid or cream that is too cold.
