My lab is on Comparison of the Bcarotene content of raw and cooked carrots...if you use a single 5.0g piece of carrot, do you expect to extract more or less Bcarotene than with the finely cut carrot sample? explain.

This involves surface area if I'm not incorrect. Which has more surface area?

Think surface area. Which melts faster? A 10 lb block of ice or 10 lbs of ice chips.?
