From I have observed that the 2% glucose

From the results above, it
displays that the higher the glucose concentration, the faster the time taken
for potassium permanganate to decolorize – there is a very strong negative
correlation/relationship between glucose concentration and potassium
permanganate: a scatterplot with a line of best fit has been utilized because
it allows the display of this relationship between the two variables. The
reason for this relationship between the glucose and potassium permanganate is
since glucose is a reducing agent while potassium permanganate is an oxidizing
agent, the glucose is reducing this potassium permanganate, while at the same
time, the potassium permanganate oxidizes the glucose: the theory behind the occurrence
of the higher concentration of glucose present in a solution, the shorter the
time taken for the potassium permanganate to decolorize, is because a
solution/drink with a higher glucose concentration, will transfer a higher
number of electron (to the potassium permanganate), thus, quickening the
reaction of transforming potassium permanganate to manganese ions and water
(both manganese ions and water are colorless). This is called the redox
reaction displaying the relationship between glucose and potassium permanganate.

This claim/theory is evident from graph 1 and processed
data table 1 above as when
the glucose concentration is at 2.0%, (the lowest), the average time
taken for potassium permanganate to turn colorless is 397.3 seconds, whereas when the glucose concentration is
at 10% (the highest), the average time taken for potassium permanganate
to turn colorless is
122.4 seconds. The
difference between the two is very much evident, where it portrays that the
average time taken for potassium permanganate to turn colorless in this redox reaction at
the presence of 10% glucose concentration is much more significant than at the
presence of 2% glucose with an average difference of 274.9 seconds between the
two highest and lowest glucose concentrations. In addition to the quantitative data, this claim can
also be observed through the observations stated in qualitative table 1 as I
have observed that the 2% glucose concentration solution took the longest time
to decolorize from purple-pink color while 10% glucose concentration took the
fastest to decolorize. When the 10% glucose solution was almost colorless, the
2% glucose solution was still purple in color.
