Which fruit has the most vitamin C?

Postby loveangel » Mon Dec 03, 2007 3:54 am

currently, im doing my investigatory project, the question given to me is: "which fruit has the most vitamin c?" , so i picked: mango, apple, orange and banana)
"determination of vitamin C" , is the title i gave to this experiment.
as i searched, titration, is the process which is suitable to this. and i am unable to enumerate the processes in simple sentences, which i am having difficulties and the various materials which are needed to this experiment. writing a methodology would be easier for me, if i would know the procedures. but i really dont know. how to interpret. much help is needed in the procedures and materials

Hi loveangel,

This sounds like an interesting project! I had a quick look through the Science Buddies website and found the following: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/mentoring/project_ideas/Chem_p043.shtml

Although this project has to do with if the amount of vitamin C in oranges decreases after being picked, there is a lot of information that you should find useful.

Please read over the information and see if you can adapt it to what you need. Also, please post back with any specific questions you may have.

Good luck!
Geoff.
