    affect us in someway, perhaps even change us. Different situations have different effects. The more difficult the situation is, the more of an effect it has on us. Those hard times can be called adversity. How do we, as humans, react to adversity? What are the possible effects it may have? An example of adversity is the Holocaust - Hitler‘s plan to exterminate the Jews. In the memoir, Night, we discover how Elie Wiesel changes in response to his concentration camp experiences. The separation from

    Investigating Osmosis in Potato Tissue Aim-We are going to investigate how 'osmosis' is effected by higher and lower concentrations of water using potato cylinders as selectively permeable membranes. A selectively permeable membrane is something only water molecules can pass through. We will cut eighteen potato cylinders to the same width and length using a scalpel and a corer on a white tile. We shall use the same potato for each cylinder. The cylinders should then be around the same

    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

    Therefore, if the concentration of reactant increases, the rate of the forward reaction will increase and equilibrium will reestablish when the concentration of products increase (vice versa). This can be observed through color changes of the solutions. Equilibrium Constant Equations for Equilibrium System 1 Fe3+ + SCN- ⇌ FeSCN2+ Yellow Orange + Colorless ⇌ Blood Red Orange Keq = [FeSCN2+] / [Fe3+][SCN-] Table 1: Equilibrium System 1 Part A Data Table studying the effects of concentration within a complex-ion

    concentrated solution will have a high concentration of water than the inside of the cell. Once the cell takes in maximum water the cell becomes turgid. If the cell was to be placed in a high concentrated solution, water would leave the cell because the cell would contain a low concentrated solution. So in the low concentrated solution there will be a high concentration of water and in the high concentrated solution there will be a low concentration of water. So what is happening is water

  • Investigating the Effect of Sugar Solution on the Weight and Size of Potato Cells

    3501 Words  | 8 Pages

    Investigating the Effect of Sugar Solution on the Weight and Size of Potato Cells Aim: To investigate whether the different concentration of sugar solution will affect the weight and size of the potato cells. General background information: Osmosis is defined as the movement of water or any other solution's molecules from an area in which they are highly concentrated to a region in which they are less concentrated. This movement must take place across a partially permeable membrane

In osmosis, water can travel in three different ways. If the molecules outside the cell are lower than the concentration in the cytosol, the solution is said to be hypotonic to the cytosol, in this process, water diffuses into the cell until equilibrium is established. If the molecules outside the cell are higher than the concentration in the

Hypertonic, hypotonic and isotonic solutions are involved in this process. Water tends to move from a high to low concentration area, towards a higher solute concentration is hypertonic. When there is more solute outside of a cell, the cell is hypotonic, and when there is more solute inside a cell, the cell is hypertonic. When the solution concentration is equivalent to the

    pass through. The molecules will continue to diffuse until the area in which the molecules are found reaches a state of equilibrium, meaning that the molecules are randomly distributed all over an object with no area having a higher or lower concentration than the other. Plant cells always have a strong cell wall surrounding them. When they take up water by osmosis they start to swell, but the cell wall prevents them from bursting. Plant cells become turgid when they are put in dilute solutions

  • Difference Between Osmosis And Diffusion

    actions exist and are of extreme importance to biological processes. Diffusion is the movement of molecules (of sugar, of dye, of salt; etc.) across either a permeable membrane or no membrane, from a region of higher concentration of said molecules to a region of lower concentration. It is exemplified in the way perfume diffuses through an entire room from the point where it was initially sprayed, or sugar dropped at the bottom of a cup of tea eventually sweetens the entire drink. Osmosis, on the
