4 star(s)

****
A good summary of the investigation but the concise style means that insufficient detail and explanation are included in places. The author has a mostly sound grasp of background theory.

Biology Coursework - Osmosis

Planning

Aim: To investigate what concentration of sucrose solution is isotonic to potato cell sap.

Apparatus: 0M sucrose (aq) (distilled water)

2M sucrose (aq)

Potato

Chip cutter

Knife

Boiling tubes

Measuring cylinder (25cm3)

Vernier callipers (to nearest 0.1mm)

Balance (to nearest 0.01gram)

Safety: I will ensure safety around the lab by: wearing safety goggles, laying paper towels, removing baggage from walking space, push stools under the bench, stand up, walk carefully and slowly - don't rush and handle equipment and apparatus carefully.

Preliminary Experiment: I did a small experiment before doing the real one so I could find a suitable range to base my investigation round. I used 3 chips in 3 boiling tubes, each containing 20cm3 of: 0M sucrose, 0.5M sucrose and 1M sucrose.
