Science: Study of Water in the Foods We Eat
We then placed the slices on a paper towel & left them in the window to dry for three days. After drying for a few days we weighed them again & I was shocked....one-fourth ounce! Three-fourths the weight had evaporated away.
Even then all the water was not removed. It would have taken several days drying in an oven to remove all the water. So if you are looking for an easy experiment to show your kids how much water is actually in the foods we eat & how important water is to us, try this experiment. It is quick & easy to do.
