    1. Vitamin C is considered to be unstable during cooking. What kind of chemical reaction do you expect vitamin C to undergo in solution (hydrolysis, oxidation, reduction?)

    2. If 12.5 ml of iodine solution is needed to titrate 10.0 ml of 1.0 mg/ml ascorbic acid standard solution and 5.0 ml of iodine solution is needed to titrate 10.0 ml of an ascorbic acid test solution. What is the concentration of ascorbic acid in the test solution?
