Investigating how much energy is stored in food
The grade 9 biologists are coming to the end of the last topic for this year; Ecosystems and human influences. We finished the topic with a practical investigation looking at how we can compare how much energy is stored in different foods. We discussed how we could ensure it was a valid test and how to estimate the amount of energy released from burning the food.
The students will complete a lab report where they analyze the data, explain it using their scientific understanding and make suggestions for improving the experiment if it was repeated. SG
