    Investigating the Movement of Osmosis through a Selectively Permeable Membrane My aim for this experiment is to see the percentage increase decrease and results of potato tissue's mass difference, when placed in different concentrations of sugar solutions. This investigation would expect to have 3 different variables, Independent, which you can change, the thing that I will be changing in this investigation for the factors affecting osmosis, is the concentrations of the solution that changes

    of mass and was hypotonic to its environment. Introduction In this lab we tested osmosis through a semi permeable membrane using dialysis bags (SCC Science Division, 2014). We also looked at osmosis in living cells of potatoes. When water is moved through a semi permeable membrane that is called osmosis. Passive transport is when molecules move with the concentration gradient across the membrane with no cellular energy used. Osmosis and diffusion are examples of passive transport. There is also active

    hour. I will change the salt concentration after each experiment. Background Knowledge -------------------- Osmosis is the passage of water molecules from a weaker solution to a stronger solution through a partially permeable membrane. A partially permeable membrane only allows small molecules to pass through, so the larger molecules remain in the solution they originated in. Solute molecule [IMAGE] [IMAGE] Water molecule [IMAGE] The water molecules move into the more

    Disapproved (is unable to go through the semi permeable membrane O Line Callout 2: Approved (is able to go through the semi permeable membrane P Salt solution Water [IMAGE] When a substance such as salt dissolves in water, the substance's molecules stick with some of the water molecules, so the concentration of the water molecules decreases. When the water molecules are the same concentration on both sides of a semi permeable membrane and salt is dissolved into one of them, osmosis

    movement of water particles from a high concentration to a low concentration through a partially permeable membrane. Osmosis happens when a partially permeable membrane allows small water particles to pass in or out towards a low water concentration. To reach an equivalent osmotic potential the concentration of water molecules has to be equal on either side of the partially permeable membrane. This means there would be no mass change. If you had a beaker of water that is distilled and filled

    sultana fairly quickly which starts to push the sultana back into a ‘grape shape.’ The water concentration is now even on the inside and out. This process is called osmosis. Part B: Aim: To investigate the action of a differentially permeable membrane. Method: See attached. Apparatus: See attached. The water level in the cellulose bag rose because of the higher

    the lungs. Oxygen in the alveolar air spaces diffuses in to the blood capillaries. Osmosis it the diffusion of water particles through a partially permeable membrane, from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration. This is until an equilibrium is formed. ‘The movement of molecules of a solvent through a semi permeable membrane’ (Usborne Dictionary of Science) [IMAGE] Temperature, concentration levels, mass (or surface area), types of solutes and types of tissue are

    expect the potato to shrink in size. I think this because of the laws of Osmosis. Osmosis is the diffusion of water through a partially permeable membrane from a high concentration gradient, to a low concentration gradient. [IMAGE] When there is a situation, such as above, the big particles on the right cannot fit through the partially permeable membrane. However the smaller water particles can fit through, and so they spread out to even the pressure, and spread the concentration equally

    defined as 'the movement of water molecules from an area of high water concentration to an area of low water concentration, across a semi-permeable membrane' (Collins, 1999). A semi-permeable membrane is a membrane that partially allows liquid to pass through. In the case of the experiment I am carrying out, the potato chips have small holes in their membranes, which only lets some water molecules flow in and out of the solution and potato chips depending on the concentration of both. In a
