A peanut is weighed and its weight is recorded.

20ml of distilled water is poured into a boiling tube.
The boiling tube is clamped to a retort stand.
The initial temperature of the distilled water in the boiling tube is recorded.
The pointed end of a long pin is poked into a peanut. The other end of the pin is poked
into a piece of plasticine.
The peanut is ignited by using a Bunsen burner and immediately placed under the boiling
tube.
The flame from the peanut is allowed to heat up the water. The water is stirred gently by
using a thermometer to distribute the heat evenly. At the same time the rise in temperature
is observed.
The final temperature of the water is recorded in a table.
The energy value of the peanut is calculated.
Steps 1 to 9 are repeated by using a bread.

Calculation:
We assume that all the heat released from the food sample has been transferred to the water. Since
the specific heat capacity of water = 4.2 J-1g oC-1.
Energy value = 4.2 (Jg-1 oC-1) x mass of water (g) x
increase in temperature ( oC)
_______________________________
Mass of peanut(g) x 1000

10. Data analysis

: Using the formula, energy value for peanut is 7.29kJ/g and energy
value for bread is 0.79kJ/g. The energy value for peanut is higher than
energy value for bread because peanut contain lipid which is have more
energy compare to bread which is carbohydrate that have less energy.
Precaution :
(a) The water is stirred gently by using a thermometer to distribute the
heat evenly
(b) The thermometer must not be allowed to touch the base of the
boiling tube
(c) A shield is used to enclosed the boiling tube to reduce heat loss to
the surrounding
(d) The distance between the food and the boiling tube must not be too
far
(e) The food must be oxidized completely by making sure the flame
does not extinguish too quickly.

11. Conclusion

: Peanut has a higher energy value than bread. The hypothesis is

accepted.
