You are watching: Is a denser fruit healthier
Problem:Does a fruit/vegetable’s density suggest its nutritional value? Studentswill meacertain the densities of assorted fruits and vegetables to identify ifthere is a connection in between density and nutritional value.
Materials:Various fruits & vegetablesScale (g)500-1000mL graduated cylinder (wide mouth)Water
Procedure:Choose at least 10 fruits and vegetables to sample.Using your background research create a chart of each sample’s nutritional value.Weigh each of your samples record in grams.Fill a 500-1000mL graduated cylinder ½ way with water and document the volume.Place the sample into the graduated cylinder so that it is subcombined in the water.Meacertain the volume of the water and submerged object.Repeat for each object.From the weight and also displacement measurements calculate: volume, mass, and density.Compare the densities to the nutritional content from your table. Choose at least 5 nutrients to compare. Each nutrient can be compared individually because some fruits will certainly contain nutrients not discovered in other foods items. Create a graph comparing food density and nutrient content using an X,Y scatter plot.
