Extracts from this document...

Introduction

EXPERIMENT TO SHOW THE EFFECT OF CONCENTRATION ON OSMOSIS IN POTATO. AIM: The aim of the experiment is to show how varying the concentration Of sucrose solution affects osmosis is a potato ship. PREDICTION: I predict that as I increase the concentration of sucrose then the amount of water moving in or out the potato will change. ...read more.

Middle

PLAN: To prove my prediction I will need the following: Potatoes (the same potato size) 5 different concentrations of sucrose (1 of which is distilled water) 1 potato borer 1 tile to cut the potato Ruler SAFETY: I will make sure that my experiment is safe by wearing goggles where necessary and making sure that I do not spill any liquid. ...read more.

Conclusion

I will make sure that I will use the same size of boiling tubes and borer. The thing that I will change in my experiment is a concentration of sucrose. What will effect my experiment: Effectors that will effect my experiment. The temperature of a room will effect my. So I will do the experiment in the temperature and record the temperature of each solution to make sure that they are the same. It is possible that the type of potato I will use will effect osmosis. I will therefore use the same type of potato. ...read more.
