Does soaking make seeds gain weight? How much? We'll weigh
12 each of lima bean seeds, pea seeds, and corn seeds. We'll
soak them overnight in separate dishes of water. Tomorrow
morning, we will drain off all the water, and weigh the seeds
again. We want to know which seeds gained the most weight,
and how much weight they gained compared to their weights
before soaking. What kind of arithmetic shall we do to
figure out the percentage of weight gain? Do you think the
amount of weight the seeds gain in one night of soaking would
be another way to classify seeds? Does soaking help the
seeds to grow? Do you think there are some kinds of seeds
that would be ruined by soaking?
