Measuring Calories: Energy Content of Food—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

All human activity requires “burning” food for energy, but how much energy is released and how is the calorie content of food determined? With the Measuring Calories: Energy Content of Food—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, determine the amount of heat energy released when different snack foods burn and identify patterns in the calorie or energy content of snack foods.

Concepts

  • Combustion Reaction
  • Nutritional Calorie
  • Calorimetry
  • Calorie Content of Foods
