Experiments with Dissolving Sugar


Dissolving sugar in water is often used in chemistry experiments because it shows the physical processes of dissolving and the different solubility factors that can affect those processes. Dissolving sugar is an experimental setting also allows the student to learn the proper experimental procedures and correctly test scientific hypothesis. It can also be quite fun.


The process of sugar dissolving can be used to teach about several solubility factors such as pressure, temperature, particle sizes and the natures of both solvents and solutes. Learning the scientific process including the ability to follow simple experimental guidelines such as the procedures for setting up the experiment, calculating the controls (equal sized glasses of water), the variables (types of sugars used, water temperatures, water pressure, stirring) of the experiment and observing the results are all essential for students to learn. Specifically using sugar and water in the experiments can also help in teaching concepts of simple molecules, the formation and breaking of physical bonds, and how energy is created or lost during the dissolving process.


Some of the specific chemistry lessons that can be directly taught by dissolving sugar in water are listed here.

Experiments with dissolving sugar in water have been a staple of the chemistry class for a long time. This is because this simple experiment can help teach the correct experiment processes and can show how the molecules and chemical processes can shape the outcomes of the experiments. A great deal of information can be taught and then physically demonstrated in a real world example with this simple experiment.
