Problem 10Q

How is rock candy made?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Problem 10Q :

Step 1:

Rock candy (also called rock sugar) is a type of confection(sweet dish or delicacy) is composed of relatively large sugar crystals. This candy is formed by allowing a supersaturated solution of sugar and water to crystallize onto a surface suitable for crystal nucleation such as a string, stick, or plain granulated sugar.

        (Nucleation is the initial process that occurs in the formation of a crystal from a solution, a liquid, or a vapour, in which a small number of ions, atoms, or molecules become arranged in a pattern characteristic of a crystalline solid),

 Heating the water before adding the sugar allows more sugar to dissolve thus producing larger crystals. Crystals form after 6–7 days. Food coloring may be added to the mixture to produce colored candy.
