Candy Anyone? An Experiment for the Rate of Growth of Sugar Crystals at Differen
Division:International / None
Region:South Fraser
City:Langley, BC
School:Pacific Academy
Abstract:My project studies the effect of the rate of cooling of a supersaturated solution of sugar and water to form rock candy. A slow controlled steady rate of cooling the solution from 230°F to room temperature over a 24-hour period produces the highest quantity and quality (large, clear prism formations) crystals comparable to those produced commercially.
