Hello.My name is Jeri Song. I am currently a student attending 
Watkins Mill High School. My class was assigned a chemistry 
project.Let me explain more about the project:we have to test 
the a chemical property of a set of similar subtances.I have 
selected the topic on different types of rice,(Ex.brown 
Rice,white Rice...) and the amount of iron in it.This project is 
not really to be done, but we need to research a way this 
project could be done.Another resource suggested an atomic-
absorption spectrometric method.I am not certain on this method 
though. Please send me anything you can, any information on 
rice, any device you think will help. Thankyou for your help!
