Gummy bear experiment gummy bears do some interesting things when put into different liquids in this experiment, we will find out what will happen when we put the gummy bears into water, salt water, vinegar, and baking soda water part a: 1 fill out the scientific method chart.
In our gummy bear lab, we placed gummy bears in two solutions one was pure water, and one was 10% sucrose after 24 hours, we observed that the gummy bear in pure water gained the most mass. Osmosis in gummy bears background information: gummy bears are made of gelatin, starch, and sugar gelatin is a polymer (huge molecule made of many repeating units) that forms large three-dimensional matrices. The mass of a regular gummy bear is 23 grams, the mass of the gummy bear in the salt water was 13 grams so it decreased by 1 gram, the mass of the tap water gummy bear was 75 grams, so the gummy bears mass increased by 53 grams.
