The use of physics in Chocolate making

The Importance of Physics in Chocolate making

Chocolate making is based on physics. The altering of these factors can affect the cost, time and therefore profit. From the flow of chocolate during the product to the cross-sectional area of the chocolate is all based on physics. In addition the time it takes for the chocolate to dry is also dependant on physics principles.

How does physics affect chocolate making

Viscosity is the frictional force in fluids they are affected by the temperature of the fluid. If it is a liquid the viscosity will increase, if you decrease the temperature. However in a gas, the viscosity will increase if you increase the temperature. In the production of chocolate the temperature must be average, so that it flows quickly while producing, but must be viscous enough to be moulded to the desired shape. Also the cross sectional area affects the stress required to break it, this will in turn affect the texture. When a liquid is able to move quicker it is less viscous. Also, when the cross sectional area is greater, the force required will also be great to
