Sample Calculation:
- Energy Value in KJ: (Mass of water [1g water is equivalent to 1ml] x temperature rise x 4.2 J)/1000
[since 1KJ = 1000J)
Ex) Energy Value of Group 1s sunflower seed: (30 x 5 x 4.2 )/1000 = 0.63 KJ
Qualitative Data
- The texture of sunflower seed and fruit loop
- Firepower of burning food
Quantitative Data
- The temperature after/ Initial temperature of water
- Mass of Food (in grams)

When heating the can, the heat might not only heat up
the can but also might heat up the air, wasting its
energy. Therefore, in order to trap the heat well, the
experiment must be progressed sealed place (for
example, the water and the can should be in the plastic
box while getting heated up)

## When cans are in different condition, for instance its old

or its colder than other cans, it might give effect on heat
conducting on water. Therefore, the can should be in the
same room, at the exact same condition. For instance,
cans can be placed in the room with 37 C room
temperature
