Does your text book give you some ideas on what your teacher is looking for?

No this is a project in which my group and I have to type up a report and have to be able to perform an experiment where something can be tested. There has to be an independent variable and dependent variable. We have to use equipment like a spectrophotometer, pipetting etc.

Thanks. We figured out that we would check the ph levels of the energy drinks we plan on testing and will add an acid an base to the samples to see if the concentration changes

Did your teacher specify that it must be related to human beings?

A taurine deficiency for cats can cause irreversible blindness, fwiw.
