Extraction of Ethanol” from Jackfruit Pulp (Artocarpus heterophyllus) as an alternative source of ethanol. Statement of the Problem
Generally, this study aims to determine if jackfruit pulp (Artocarpus heterophyllus) can be a source of ethanol. Specifically, this study aims to answer the following questions: 1. Is there a significant relationship between the percent yield of ethanol and the different lengths of fermentation of the jackfruit pulp (Artocarpus heterophyllus)? 2. Is there a significant difference between the density, color, boiling point, and flame test of ethanol from jackfruit pulp (Artocarpus heterophyllus ) among the different lengths of fermentation? Hypotheses

1. There is no significant relationship between percent yield of ethanol, and the lengths of fermentation of jackfruit pulp (Artocarpus heterophyllus). 2. There is no significant difference between the density, color, boiling point, and flame test of ethanol from jackfruit pulp (Artocarpus heterophyllus) among the different lengths of fermentation. Significance of the Study

The study production of ethanol from jackfruit pulp (Artocarpus heterophyllus) would be a great help for the fuel users and producers. When researcher creates another source of fuels from plants and fruits; this can ease the maximum importation of fuel in the country. This is also an environmental friendly source of energy. This study also helps promote the program recycle waste of the government for the better environmental which are Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

Scope and Limitation
The study is only limited on the extraction of ethanol from jackfruit pulp. The independent variable is the length of fermentation of jackfruit pulp, while the dependent variable is density, color, flame test, boiling point and percent yield. Definition of Terms

The following terms were defined conceptually and operationally for more clear and easy understanding. Fermentation is a form of respiration that converts energy from...
