Mike Vitale Professor Golden CHE*111 31 March 2008 Calorie Content of Peanuts The purpose of this lab is to use a simple calorimeter to determine the calorie content of peanuts. Then we took these numbers and compared them to the calorie count on the label.

We began our research with two different Market Pantry Dry Roasted Peanuts. Data was recorded as follows: 1 st Peanut 2 nd Peanut Initial mass of peanut and weighing paper (g) .69 .80 Mass of weighing paper .41 .41 Initial mass of peanut (g) .28 .39 After burning all of the peanut oil out of the peanuts, we weighed what was left. 1 st Peanut 2 nd Peanut Mass of peanut residue and weighing paper (g) .555 .47 Mass of peanut residue (g) .145 .06
