For my Chemistry paper I decided that I would do technology. Some of the topics I chose for my paper was how chemistry helps with technology by helping with Forsenic Science, Crime Scene Investigations, the wiring of bombs, fireworks and guns preventing premature detonatations, and Engineering. Chemistry deals with technology and sciences since technology is used to make experiments. Another example of everyday use is the computer that helps you in your research and communications. Forensic science techniques uses the chemistry of print to trace the topography or landscape of evidence left at a crime scene. Dusting for fingerprints has its limitations on some surfaces, chemistry allows evidence to be produced imediately. A process …show more content…
It may seem as though engineering would have nothing to do with winemaking , but the fermentation process is what makes the grape juice, grape wine. Grape jucie consists of 79% water and 20% carbohydrates, 1% organic acids and trace amounts of organic acids, phenolics, vitamins, minerals and nitrogenous compounds. Some winemakers don’t wash their grapes. Is this nasty or not? Well, in my research I found that some winemakers believe that making wine with grapes that still have the dust from the dirt and pesticides from their vineyard makes a bolder and better tasting wine. Which is also known as the chemistry of winemaking, also known as enology and is very hard to understand. A man by the name of Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac first found that the overall reaction of gases turns glucose to alcohol and carbon dioxide and has the chemical equation of C6H12O6 -->2 CO2+ 2C2H5OH. Wine is used in many settings, reglious settings such as communion and social settings such as parties and night clubs. Winemaking – Wash Your Grapes?

There are a lot of things that we enjoy can be related to chemistry that we would never think of. I hope my paper has opened up your eyes as to some
