All human activity requires “burning” food for energy. In this experiment, you will determine the energy released (in kJ/g) as various foods, such as cashews, marshmallows, peanuts, and popcorn, burn. You will look for patterns in the amounts of energy released during burning of the different foods.
In this experiment, you will
