  • How Osmosis affects Potato chips in Different Concentrations

    2689 Words  | 11 Pages

    How Osmosis affects Potato chips in Different Concentrations Background: Osmosis is the movement of water molecules across a partially permeable membrane from a region high water concentration to low water concentration. A partially permeable membrane is a membrane with tiny holes in so small that only water molecules can pass through. When you place a potato chip in a salt or sugar solution, then if the potato has higher water potential some of the water will diffuse into the Sal solution

  • Investigating Osmosis In A Potato

    because the concentration of water is greater there, that is, fewer dissolved substances exist in this solution than in the sugar solution. The level of liquid in the tube of sugar solution will eventually rise until the flow of water from the tube of sugar solution, under the influence of hydrostatic pressure, equals the flow of water into the tube." -From Encarta 2001 In osmosis, a solvent (often water) moves from a region of low concentration to a region of high concentration through a

  • The Effect of Solute Concentration on the Rate of Osmosis

    2872 Words  | 12 Pages

    The Effect of Solute Concentration on the Rate of Osmosis Aim: To test and observe how the concentration gradient between a potato and water & sugar solution will affect the rate of osmosis. Introduction: Osmosis is defined as, diffusion, or net movement, of free water molecules from high to low concentration through a semi-permeable membrane. When a substance, such as sugar (which we will be using in the experiment we are about to analyse), dissolves in water, it attracts free

  • Factors Affecting the Equilibrium Reaction of Iron (III) and Thiocyanate ions

    2713 Words  | 11 Pages

    are mixed. - The quantitative data of the absorbance of the solution will allow the determination of the concentration of the Iron (III) Thiocyanatoiron using the Beer–Lambert Law. The difference in concentration of the solution per temperature point provides the precise effect of temperature on the reaction’s equilibrium position. Introduction This experiment investigates how changing a factor that affects the equilibrium reaction, in this case temperature, affects the equilibrium position

  • An Investigation on How Different Levels of Sugar Concentration Can Affect Potato Cells

    2863 Words  | 12 Pages

    An Investigation on How Different Levels of Sugar Concentration Can Affect Potato Cells AIM: My aim for this experiment is to see the results of potato tissue's mass difference, when placed in different concentrations of sugar solutions. Also my aim for this experiment is to estimate the concentration of cell sap within the potato cells. Variables involved: For this experiment I would expect to have 3 different variables, Independent, Dependent, and fixed variables, which all help

  • Chemistry Catalyst Investigation

    3891 Words  | 16 Pages

    Chemistry Catalyst Investigation Aim To devise and carry out an investigation into how the concentration of hydrogen peroxide in a solution with distilled water will affect the rate of the catalysed reaction between hydrogen peroxide solution and manganese oxide. I will be studying the chemical catalyst manganese and its reaction with different concentrations of hydrogen peroxide. The liquid hydrogen peroxide decomposes according to the equation: 2H202 (l) 2H20 (l) + 02 (g)

  • An Investigation into Osmosis

    2765 Words  | 12 Pages

    potato? 2 How does the concentration of a solution surrounding a cell affect movement in and out of cell across its semi- permeable membrane? In order to do this I will need to consider what osmosis is and make some experiments to help me investigate and find answers for the key questions. Background Information [IMAGE] Osmosis is diffusion of water molecules moving from a particularly permeable membrane from a high concentration to a lower concentration. The water molecules can

  • Investigating The Affect of Concentration on The Rate of Reaction

    2090 Words  | 9 Pages

    Investigating The Affect of Concentration on The Rate of Reaction Aim- To find out if changing the concentration of the hydrochloric acid affects the volume of gas released in 5 minutes. Background Information The rate of reaction depends on four things:- 1. Temperature 2. Concentration 3. Catalyst 4. Size of particles/surface area The Collision Theory The collision theory explains the rates of reaction, the rate of reaction depends on how often and how hard the reacting particles

  • Osmosis Investigation

    Osmosis Investigation In this investigation we are going to be monitoring the sucrose sugar solution concentration change on the mass of a potato. We are basing our investigation on the process of osmosis. This is the net movement of water molecules from a region of their higher concentration to a region of their lower concentration, through a partially permeable membrane: [IMAGE] Water molecules move from where there is more water, to where there is less, as long as the membrane

  • Investigating the Effects of Different Concentrations of Sucrose Solution on Potato Cells

    2636 Words  | 11 Pages

    Investigating the Effects of Different Concentrations of Sucrose Solution on Potato Cells Aim: to investigate the different effects of various concentrations of sucrose solution on potato cells. Introduction: Osmosis is a special type of diffusion. Osmosis happens when two solutions of different concentrations are separated by a selectively permeable membrane. A selectively permeable membrane has holes in it which are just big enough for water molecules to pass through, but not the
