Does Controlled Atmosphere Storage Affect the Malic Acid and Starch Levels in Apples?
The purpose of this experiment was to determine if controlled atmosphere apple storage would affect the amount of malic acid and starch levels in apples. I became interested in this idea when one day I bit into an apple and it was crisp, mild, smooth and tart, while a week later the same batch was grainy and had a not-so-good taste.
How to make a potato battery
This activity uses a common potato and two different metals to make a enough electricity to run a small digital clock. Try this activity then attempt to expand on it to create a neat science fair project.
How does the sugar concentration vary in different brands of apple juices?
looking through a list of ideas provided by my science teacher. The sugar content interested me and since our town produces so many apples, I chose apple juice. I got the idea of truth in labeling and juice percentages while discussing this idea with my science teacher. The information gained from this experiment will help consumers to know if the manufacturers are labeling their products correctly.
