Jello without Meat tenderizer - Not much has drained from the coffee filter. Stayed the same. Leaked just a bit, Coffee filter didn't let it through. Jello still was a bit chunky. completely dry coffee filter.
Jello With Meat Tenderizer - Broke down the jello, lots leaked through to the bottom. Completely wet coffee filter. turned into more of a liquid. I think it leaked down to the bottom because the meat tenderizer broke down the jello like are stomach would brake down are food. Then it leaked through unlike cup one because of the meat tenderizer just like our stomachs would take out all of the nutrients to give to our body the good parts of the food. And it keeps the not needed food in it.
Question 1 - How are the two cups different and why.
Question 2 - What process in the human body is demonstrated by the liquid in the bottom of the cup
Question 3 - What process in the human body is demonstrated by the wet coffee filter.
Question 4 - How does this lab help us understand digestion
1. The cups are different because of the cup two is wet on the sides and let some of the jello through, when cup 1 was dry on the sides and didn't leek through through at all. So one cup drained some out and one didn't.
2. The process demonstrated is the meat tenderizer is the enzymes breaking down the proteins in the jello, which jello is actually meat. The wetness is the liquid in the large intestine.
3. In Number 2 also.
4. It is taking the jello and breaking it down in to what it could use (The Jello).
