Hi everyone, I will be popping popcorn-three brands and the measures being which brand has the most popped corn. As I am trying to bring all this together,
and at this point; in the Literature review section of my experiment I have to cite at least 2 other studies that I can summarize and draw a connection with these external studies and my study. My school recommended completed online (projects) studies found on Science Buddies site. I don't have a problem reviewing, summarizing and drawing a connection, but I don't know how to find them? I am bouncing around this site and I need find to some completed projects that I can compare/Contrast with my Popcorn popping Experiment. Thank You so much Raymond
Craig Bridge; Thank You so much for the direction in regards to my question on Relevance.

I am experimenting popping different brands of popcorn to see which one has less un-popped kernels?

It's great that your school recommends ScienceBuddies! To answer your question, I'm not sure that ScienceBuddies has projects that fit your specific criteria, so I went online and found a few projects that I think are similar to your project. Perhaps you can cite some of these studies and compare/contrast them with your experiment. I would be interested to know if your results are the same/different than these projects! http://www.mercer.edu/camps/message/sum ... opcorn.htmhttp://www.ncsu.edu/crsc/events/imsm10/ ... netics.pdf
<-- this is a more "advanced" paper, and though it is not exactly about how "popped" popcorn is I thought it might be an interesting contrast to show other experiments that are done with popcornhttp://home.ptd.net/~sequoia1/Science/popcorn.htmhttp://jrscience.wcp.muohio.edu/nsfall0 ... dents.html
Hope this helps, best of luck!
