Introduction

Osmosis is the movements in water from High Water Concentration/a dilute solution to Low Water Concentration (a Concentrated Solution). A semi - permeable membrane (cell membrane) [image001.gif] [image002.gif] Osmosis [image003.gif] [image004.gif] Low Water Concentration Cell Will Shrink [image005.gif] [image006.gif] [image007.gif] Distilled Water [image008.gif] [image009.gif] [image010.gif] High Water Concentration Cell swells up Prediction: I think that the distilled water, tap water and the weak salt solution will swell up and the strong salt solution will shrink. ...read more.

[image015.gif] [image016.gif] [image016.gif] To investigate the effects of different concentration solutions on osmosis in plant cells I will need to use 6 Boling tubes for each solution 24 * 3cm of potato Weigh each potato Measuring cylinder Test tube rack Potato boar Method 1. ...read more.

Conclusion

I did this for all four solutions Fair Test I will do each experiment 6 times to make it a fair test I will also do all the experiments at the same time. Conclusion My overall result of the experiment was very good it was very accurate and it showed what it was meant to. Evaluation If I were to do this experiment again I would make no changes because my results were very accurate. ...read more.

  1. Investigation into Osmosis

    concentrations of the solutions become more equal and so the probability of a water molecule diffusing in or out of the cell decrease and so the change in mass will slow down. As time passes with the chip in the 0.2 mol concentration, there should not really be any large

    It is this change in length I will examine. There is also a point where the concentrations of water inside and outside the potato cells are equal (isotonic), at this point there will be no change in the length of the potato chip, and no osmosis will occur.
