Presentation Transcript
problem
Problem
  • What drink has more electrolytes and is consequently better for the human body-orange juice or Gatorade?
  • Rationale
research
Research
  • Electrolyte-any substance containing free ions that make the substance electrically conductive
  • Main electrolytes in body
  • Ingredients in Gatorade and Orange Juice
  • Why are they important?
hypothesis
Hypothesis

If orange juice and Gatorade are tested for electrolyte content, then Gatorade will exhibit a higher amount of electrolytes and is therefore more beneficial to the human body.

materials
Materials
  • Orange Juice (100 mL)
  • Gatorade (100 mL)
  • Distilled Water (100 mL)
  • Tap Water (100 mL)
  • Multimeter (1)
  • Copper wires (2, 15.25 cm each)
  • 9 Volt battery (1)
  • Graduated cylinder, ruler
  • Containers (4)
procedure
Procedure
  • Measure materials
  • Set up simple conductor
  • Test liquids
  • Repeat 5 times for each liquid
  • Record data
variables
Variables
  • Independent Variable-Liquids
  • Dependent Variable-DCV measurement
  • Control Groups-Distilled and Tap Water
conclusion
Conclusion

The original hypothesis stated that Gatorade would contain the most electrolytes, as opposed to orange juice. The hypothesis was supported-Gatorade had the highest DCV measurement and therefore the most electrolytes.

further experimentation
Further Experimentation
  • Problems with the experiment
  • More in depth research before hand
    • Brands of orange juice
    • Different flavors/varieties of Gatorade
  • Calculating the actual electrolyte count
