Suggested Activity: Oxidation of an Apple

Cut and core an apple into sections. Dip half the apple into lemon juice and place it on a plate. Place the remaining sections of apple on another plate. What happens to each plate of apples? Discuss the effects of the lemon juice coating, which keeps oxygen from the apples. As a result, they do not discolor rapidly.
