Nice! How are you filling up your binder? A few pages on lipids and stuff?

The rules didn't say if we could bring in a stopwatch. Can we attach one to our Viscosity Device or put it in the binder? :?: How else can you use a viscosity device without a stopwatch? I am so confused :cry:

Good question. The rules explicity state what you CAN bring, a binder and a cheapo calculator. It later says that event supervisors must bring all items necessary for lab activities. I'm assuming that would include a timepiece, but we shouldn't assume when we both are confused about it. I'd suggest you bring one and ASK if you can bring it into the testing room/if it's counted as part of your homemade viscosity tester in the event they don't provide it (you know how invitationals are...). In the meantime, I'm submitting a clarification. I'll post if they provide a response.

You would think you would be able to bring a stopwatch, that is confusing you should cheek the rules again.

food science seems like there is alot of components to it i mean it seems really hard. i just learned how to read nutrition labels and now we are testing the different ingredients in cupcakes

i think the supervisors will provide them so that none are tampered with. you need to use one to test viscosity and you wont be able to do it so yeah :P

Poise is the SI unit for viscosity. 1 centipoise is 0.01 poise.
