if one train full of sugar leaves chicago at 3pm...

If I combine two parts white granulated sugar and one part water (by volume), how much 2:1 sugar syrup will I end up with? Alternatively, if I boil down a 1:1 sugar syrup (say 16 cups water and 16 cups sugar), at what final reduced volume will I have achieved a 2:1 solution? [more inside]

Why do sugars like to cyclize in solution, thermodynamically speaking?

What is the correct thermodynamic explanation for the fact that all monosaccharides with 5 or more backbone carbon atoms occur predominately in their cyclic form in solution?
