Drinking is not the only source of water. People take in water in many foods they eat. How much water is in some foods? Test different foods such as a small slice of apple, banana, potato, and celery. First weigh each slice and to record that weight on a chart. Leave the food slices under a lamp overnight; the light source should be about 1-1/2 feet above the food. The next day, weigh your foods again. Did the foods gain or lose weight? Why?
