Q:

What is the density of corn syrup?

A:

Quick Answer

The density of dark Karo corn syrup is 1.37 grams per milliliter, while that of light Karo corn syrup is 1.33 grams per milliliter. Differences in density depend on the brand, type and grade of the corn syrup, which is rated by dextrose equivalence. Temperature and pressure also affect density.

Full Answer

Density is a measure of how much mass is in a given volume of matter. In corn syrup, as density increases, viscosity and sweetness also increase. The denser dark Karo corn syrup is more viscous and sweeter than light Karo corn syrup. Corn syrup is denser than water and oil. Therefore, when the three substances are mixed together, corn syrup rests at the bottom of the container.

  • Q:

    Does 1 milliliter equal 1 gram?

    A:

    One milliliter equals 1 gram only when the density of a liquid is 1 gram per milliliter. The most common substance that has 1 gram per milliliter is water. The milliliter is a unit of volume that is one-thousandth of a liter, which is the basic metric volumetric unit. A gram is a metric unit of mass equivalent to one-thousandth of a kilogram.

  • Q:

    What is the difference between a milligram and a milliliter?

    A:

    A milligram measures mass while a milliliter measures volume. Mass relates to weight, or the amount of matter in a thing, while volume is how much space a substance takes up. This comparison is similar to comparing a pound (weight) to a cup (volume).
