column show the temperature change that occurred to the flask containing 100 mL water. Processed Data For the processed data, results from the information recorded from the experiment went through a formula that is presented below, from this formula and process the rate at which the calories are burned is attainable. Q = Vol water• ΔTwater Q= Heat absorbed by water as calories Conversion= 1000 calories= 1 Kilocalorie= 1 food calorie Divide by time seconds to determine the rate of how many calories were burned per second

ROBERT VAN DEN ABEELE High Calorie-Content Food Lab Report Analysis As seen from the processed data there isn’t any correlation between the results obtained, there also is not any sort of trend or trendline between any of the results, the correlation value in the diagram show a very insignificant value which was 6.535xE^-3 that makes the results seem as if there isn’t any relation between them at all this value approximates to zero than it does to one. The results obtained by this experiment might be explained by the method that was used to acquire them. By understanding energy transfer and exothermic reactions, it is known that this energy could eventually go to any near surroundings, and therefore the energy that was transferred from the corn cooking oil was not effectively transferred into the flask containing water. The data collected suggests that the results are inaccurate. For example it is seen how as the surface area of the corn oil increases and the kilocalories per second does seem to increase in the first three container according to each of their average kilocalorie per second results, but then the final to trials of 6 cm2 and 7.2 seem to show odd results.

ROBERT VAN DEN ABEELE High Calorie-Content Food Lab Report Conclusion Even though the hypothesis states that the rate of the calories burned (transferred as energy), is supposed to show a correlation with the surface area, this is not seen from the results.

    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.
