Through cellular respiration cells turn sugars into sucrose which is a storage protein from the cell that takes all the energy from the sugar molecule and holds it until the cell needs it too do some sort of work and its particular job.

You would put one of the chosen substances in a graduated cylinder, which you would then put the hydrometer in.
