If one compares the amount of electrolytes present in an artificial substance (sports drink), to those in a natural substance (orange juice), then the natural substance will have the most electrolytes. That is my hypothesis. I chose this topic because I have always been skeptical about the validity of the quantity of electrolytes said to be in sports drinks. Sports drinks have been recommended as a way to replace electrolytes, which are lost during exercise. However, orange juice also has electrolytes and these are naturally occurring, not man made. Although water is also a liquid recommended for exercise, it is not used for strenuous exercise because it has no electrolytes. I predict that while running an electric charge through both orange
Did you know that Gatorade and other sports drinks contain electrolytes that can be used in a battery solution? These electrolytes are the same ones that replenish your body after exercise. Gatorade and other drinks have different electrolyte activity rates. That makes the battery either more or less powerful. A battery can be made with more electrolyte containing materials than you think.
Purpose and Hypothesis The purpose of this lab is to compare the 2 leading energy drink brands to see which drink gives better endurance. Electrolytes help carry energy necessary for many functions. If having more electrolytes increases endurance of participant, then Gatorade is most likely to give more endurance as it has more electrolytes than Powerade.
Lastly Gatorade has been proven to be a better equipped sports drink shown right here,“Gatorade contains 160 milligrams of sodium and 45 milligrams of potassium per serving, while Powerade contains 150 milligrams of sodium and 35 milligrams of potassium per serving. By comparison, Gatorade is slightly superior at replacing lost electrolytes.” As you can see Gatorade is better equipped for athletes proving the point that Gatorade is better than Powerade. In conclusion Gatorade and Powerade are very similar, but Powerade is less equipped for the task unlike Gatorade.
The last person I interviewed asked if energy drinks had a higher voltage compared to water or if they had the same voltage. All liquids have a voltage this is where we get our energy from. The reason energy drinks have a voltage is because of the high amount of caffeine they have in them and the reason water has a voltage is because of the process that water goes through to be cleaned. The water particles rubbing together cause friction giving the water a static electric charge. In order to test which energy drink has the highest voltage to give the most energy I am going to use a zinc nail, copper wire, a volt meter and four different energy drinks and water.
Next , in a text by , Jennifer Sygo titled “Obey your thirst , just not necessarily with a sports drink”. In this text she explains that “For most workouts ,practices , sessions, or games , drinking water according to thirst is usually enough “(2) . Some people need more than water , they need something with flavor to actually quench their thirst . Whereas, in an article titled “powerade and the science hydration” . In this article it talks about Powerades ION4 where is states that “Powerade ION4 contains, four electrolytes -Sodium ,potassium,calcium and magnesium…” (1)
In today’s World, mostly every athlete is driven towards Gatorade. Gatorade is sports drink, which is used by billions of athlete over the world. Its main purpose is to help athletes rehydrate quickly and improve performance and productivity. Gatorade contains electrolytes such as sodium and potassium, which plays a key role in regulating the fluids level balance. It helps athlete stay top on their game and provides energy throughout their game.
In this lab, human error could have possibly been that the salt wasn’t fully dissolved or even the Kool-Aid wasn’t fully dissolved. To fix this next time, both mixtures can be stirred a little longer. A third human error could have been when putting 20 drops into the test tubes, some drops were bigger than others causing there to be more than mL of mixture in the test tube. At the end of the lab, a red and yellow M&M were used to do a home material test. I dissolved the color off the shell with warm water and placed a dot of each color onto a strip of chromatograph and placed them in two individual
Research Question: To investigate and compare how different temperature (5℃, 15℃, 25℃, 35℃, 45℃) can affect the concentration of carbon dioxide in soda water through titration with sodium hydroxide solution. Introduction: Carbon dioxide plays an important role in soft drinks. Soda water is manufactured by pumping carbon dioxide into water under high pressure. Carbon dioxide dissolves in water to form carbonic acid, which is the fizz we find in soft drinks. CO2 + H2O ⇌
The principles of using acid catalyzed carbohydrate dehydration as a quantifier was sufficiently communicated, and the possible sources of error that resulted in a relatively inaccurate determination of the total carbohydrate concentration in the soda and Gatorade will be taken into consideration if conducting this analysis in the
Everyone loves water and gatorade but the real question is, which is a better choice for kids during a regular daily basis or even during sports. “Sports drinks” like gatorade and powerade are supposed to replenish electrolytes that are lost through sweat, but why do kids need to have 34 grams of sugar and a dose of chemical food dye in order to replenish their electrolytes after an hours worth of practice. After a game, the kids should have water to replenish what they have lost through sweat. In my opinion the kids should be able to choose what drink they want after a game or even practice because since they have been working hard, yes they are losing electrolytes, but water does not provide them back into the body afterwards like a gatorade
Introduction: In this lab, of water in a hydrate, or a substance whose crystalline structure is bound to water molecules by weak bonds, is determined by heating up a small sample of it. By heating, the water of hydration, or bound water, is removed, leaving only what is called an anhydrous compound. Based on the percent water in the hydrate, it can be classified as one of three types: BaCl2O ⋅ 2H20, with a percent water of about 14.57%, CuSO4 ⋅ 5H2O, which has about 36.0%, and CuCl2 ⋅5H20 (21.17%).
Abstract — This experiment was conducted to familiarize the students with the procedures regarding distillation—to be more precise, the separation of ethanol from an alcoholic beverage—using a distillation set-up consisting of boiling chips, a Bunsen burner, a condenser, a thermometer and several other materials. In the end, it was discovered that one may actually separate a homogeneous mixture, given that the components of said mixture differ in volatility and that they utilize a complete distillation set-up and follow laboratory safety rules and regulations.
The purpose of this lab was to be able to use physical characteristics to determine the identity of an unknown compound. The data from this experiment classified aluminum as metallic; ascorbic acid, paraffin, palmitic acid, sucrose, graphite, and water as molecular; sodium chloride as ionic. In order to determine this, 3 tests were conducted. The first test was to test the conductivity of each substance at room temperature. In this test, only graphite and aluminum conducted.
With the constantly increasing paces of everyday life the search for an energy source, capable of boosting the human body to new limits by extending its endurance, continues. In the recent years a specific product, called an energy drink, has received much publicity worldwide. The energy drink is a highly caffeinated stimulant that is able to rise the performance of the human body. Many people consider it as a refreshment after a hard day’s work. What’s more one of the most frequently used cases of energy drinks is in combination with alcohol during parties.
