Abstract


An investigation of the factors that affect the strength of gelatin used in casing of capsules for medication.

By: Chelsea, Erica, and Ao Shen

Our question is: "What conditions are the best for making the strongest gelatin?" The aim of our paper is to test which factors they might be. The question is solved by testing the crushing weights of the produced gelatin, which have been made under different conditions. The container with the mixture stirred 70 times' crushing weight is 300g. The container with the mixture stirred 85 times' crushing weight is 350g. The container with the mixture stirred 100 times' crushing weight is 350g. The container with the mixture made of a 30g of gelatin powder:150ml of water ratio's crushing weight is 900g. The container with the mixture made of 15g of gelatin powder:150ml of water ratio's crushing weight is 550g. The container with the mixture made of a 10g of gelatin powder:150ml of water ratio's crushing weight is 350g. We now know the conditions under which different kinds of gelatin can be made under. We also know the conditions which need to be achieved in order to make different kinds of capsules.
