    In this experiment yeast ferment sugars anaerobically. When yeast ferments the sugars anaerobically, however, CO2 production will cause a change in the weight of the sugar/yeast-solution. This raises a further question: What is the effect of different kinds of sugars on the fermentation process of yeast? The fermentation process was followed at a constant temperature and four different types of sugars were used. By measuring the release of carbon dioxide, we could see what type of sugar had the biggest effect on the fermentation process of yeast, which resulted in Sacharose.…

    Fermentation is the chemical process converting sugar to gases and occurs in yeast and bacteria. In the experiment we conducted, we used sucrose and yeast and measured the fermentation carbon dioxide formation. The factors affecting fermentation that we tested in this experiment were temperature and the effect of a disinfectant. We measured the fermentation carbon dioxide formation by using a ruler and measuring the amount of bubbles in the tube that were formed.…
