My Aims

* I am aiming to find out what affects the rate of Osmosis.

* To do this I am going to use temperature as a variation and my aim is to use it successfully.

Prediction

I predict that the warmer the water, the faster the rate of Osmosis occurs. I believe that Osmosis will occur when the water is at 10 but when the water temperature increases to higher temperatures e.g. 50 I believe a greater amount of water will of passed through the Visking Tubing (a semi permeable membrane).

Equipment

* Visking Tubing

* 5x 400ml beakers

* 2x 100ml beakers

* 1 molar salt solution

* 5 paper clips

* Distilled water

* Vegetable oil

* Thermometer

* Stop watch

Procedure

* Fill a 400ml beaker with 300ml of distilled water at the specific temperature e.g. 100 . Use a thermometer to get an exact temperature. Do this for every specified temperature.

* Pore some salt solution into 2x 100ml beakers and make sure that they are 20 .

* Place some of the salt solution (25ml) in
