Temperature is your proxy measurement for the concentration of sugar - if you don't hit the right temperature, the ...

Specifically, adding 1 gram molecular weight of nonionizing solute (like sugar) to 1 liter of water increases the boiling point by 0.52 degree Celsius (C). 1 gram molecular weight ...
