  • Potato Osmosis In Potato

    There were many observable factors when investigating osmosis in potatoes. Four different solutions were created (distilled water, 1% salt (NaCl), 3% salt and 5% salt. The potatoes were sliced until they were 3cm long, each test tube contained 3 strips of potato cores and a different concentration. The potato strips were weighed and the results recorded. The potato cores were left in each solution for 24 hours. Once the test results were collected the data was averaged and placed into a graph and a table. As shown in both the table and the graph, both results from the group E20 and the class data prove the fact of osmosis. which can be seen when the potatoes are placed in a distilled solution for 24 hours they gain weight. And when placed in…

  • Potato Osmosis Experiment

    the length and mass of the potato when it is put in water and different concentrations of salt? Introduction Osmosis is the diffusion of water molecules from a region of higher concentration to a lower concentration of water molecules (through a partially permeable membrane). If the cell is placed in a higher water potential, water enters by osmosis and if the cell is placed in lower water potential, then the water leaves the cell by osmosis. The experiment we did shows the process of osmosis.…
