Sugar Cube Break Up

118 Words1 Page
In our mini-lab yesterday, we put sugar cubes in a jar and shook them for three minutes. The first jar had one cube, the second had two cubes, and the third had three cubes. We were trying to find the impact of the shaking on the sugar cubes. Our sugar cubes represented the rocks, and the shaking was an outside force. My group’s hypothesis was that the sugar cubes would break up. The mass of one sugar cube was originally 2.35 grams. After it was shaken by all three of us for three minutes, it’s mass was .96 grams. Our data cannot be used for everyone, however. How rapidly, strong, and fast you shake can make a difference.
