Sadly, water temperature will differ depending on what tournament you go to, because every school sets room temperatures themselves. In fact, it will even depend on the time of day that gets assigned to your team for water quality, because event supervisors tend to mix salt with either cold or hot tap water, and the temperature of the solution will gradually approach room temperature as the day goes on.Does anyone have any idea what the water temperature will be for the salinity tests? I was thinking of measuring salinity with electric resistance, but water is more conductive at a higher temperature. Should my partner and I not even use an electric salinometer and just stick with a straw?
You must build your own salinometer before competition, so you and your team will have completely assembled all parts at school/home, and you'll bring your completed salinometer with you on the day of the tournament. The design of the salinometer is up to you, but you are allowed to use an electrical one, as long as you build it yourself using basic circuit components.I was wondering this is my first year doing food science and do we build our own salinometer and bring it to the competition? Can we bring an electric one but it must be built before the competition? Is it better to build a digital or use a regular salinomter?
I read it as two separate unique papers with different information if wanted, but I'm unsure.I noticed in the Food Science Rules is says one page front and back per participant. Does anyone know if this means a team of two can have 2 pages front and back where each side has different information, or if it means a team of two can have two identical copies of one cheat sheet?
My understanding is that each participant will get their own sheet. So if you have one participant then you have one sheet, if two then you have two.I noticed in the Food Science Rules is says one page front and back per participant.
