Abstract

The experiment was designed to affect the relationship of time storage method on the Vitamin C levels in orange juice. This will show how quickly the Vitamin C in orange juice wears down, and which container a person should buy their orange juice from to get the most Vitamin C from the orange juice possible. Diluted iodine was used to find the Vitamin C levels. The graphical analysis showed that the vitamin c level in the cardboard container dropped more over time that the vitamin c level in the plastic container. The descriptive statistics showed, however, showed that there was more vitamin c in the plastic container than the cardboard container. The inferential statistics was found out that our alternative hypothesis was correct and Vitamin C levels in a cardboard orange juice container deteriorate quicker than the Vitamin C levels in a plastic orange juice container.
