Homework Help: Biology- Amylase

Posted by Nelson on Sunday, November 4, 2007 at 2:18pm.

Hello,
In our class, we are doing a hypothetical digestion of starch by amylase lab. I do not know where to begin with this following information. If I add Benedict's solution (which I know will change color when the presence of sugar is noted).
After all of these tubes are submerged in boiling water with Benedict's what would happen and why?
Tube A: Starch + saliva treated with HCI(acid)
Tube B: Starch + saliva and water, treated in a boiling water bath
Tube C: Starch + saliva

Thanks for any insight!
