So we've started working on our first controlled assessment for biology. And we're doing the burning crisp experiment to find out the energy content of crisps. Here's our 'task':
Energy content of food;
"Eating an energy controlled diet is one way of reducing the risk of obesity. The energy content of a food can be measured by heating water with a burning food sample. Plan and carry out an investigation into the energy content of crisps"

As part of our experiment and plan, we have to write a hypothesis based on what we think the outcome will be. We have to include our prediction (crisp with most energy causes greatest temp. increase) and other relevant key terms, including energy, kilojoules, carbohydrate, fat, obesity, energy balance, energy equation and energy requirement

Can anyone who has either studied GCSE biology, is studying biology or someone who has a good idea on how to write a hypothesis, either tell me how to write it and structure it or write a hypothesis

Thanks!😁😊x

A hypothesis doesn't have to be long at all. Just write something like the crisp containing the highest kilojoules of energy will cause the highest temperature increase of the water. That is all you need in the hypothesis and then go on to give some facts on obesity and energy coming in different forms (carbohydrates and fats) just to set up your experiment plan. Try to make sure that you use of the key terms to show that you know and understand their relevance.
I haven't done GCSE biology in three years but your teacher should give you guidance as long as you've put in some effort to try and do it.
Good luck!
