The Question sounds stupid but i have a legit problem
I mixed 1000 mL coconut water and 225 g of agar-agar to make a coconut water [CW] agar. It gave me more than 1000 ml. the medium went beyond the 1000 ml mark. the CW agar was also too soft to use
then i tried mixing 775 mL coconut water and 225 g agar-agar it gave me little below the 1000 mL mark. the CW agar was just right not too soft and not to hard :|
(I did heat after mixing during those two trials but the volume remained the same after cooling to room temp.)
Seems to break rules taught to us. i though when you add mass to a liquid it won't increase the volume but the density will increase or does this only apply to water?
