Introduction: Biology is the science of life and thus one of the many sciences that are part of everyday life. Diffusion and osmosis are processes that are a constant in our lives, even though many don’t realize it. Medicaments such as Fervex can be drunk only after diffusion has taken place and the powder granules have diffused into the hot cup of water. On the other hand, every day we become unintentional witnesses of osmosis when the roots of the plants try to suck up the water from the soil (1). The purpose of this lab is to show clearly in an understandable way how diffusion and osmosis happen and to help one realize the way they occur. If a cube of beat is put in hot water (5 trials – 5 temperatures: 60 ºC, 70 ºC, 80 ºC, 90 ºC, and 100ºC), then the mass of the beat cube will decrease because thanks to osmosis, water will move from the beat to the clear water outside it, because in osmosis water would move from places with low to places with high concentration of w...

Osmosis Lab Report

Abstract: Water appears to cross the differentially permeable membrane of potato cells by a process called osmosis. During seven-lab experiments our class found that when we soak a potato and a prune in DI water it will gain weight but if we soak a potato in NaCl solution it will lose weight but a prune soaked in NaCl solution will gain weight just as it did in the DI water. Introduction: All cells contain membranes, which are selectively permeable, allowing things to pass in and out of the cell. The process which molecules of a substance move from areas of high...

Diffusion And Osmosis Lab

 Examining Diffusion and Osmosis Introduction: Purpose: 1. To simulate and observe the diffusion of solutes and the osmosis of water through a semipermeable membrane through color change and sugar tests. 2. To speculate osmosis occurring in dialysis bags and potato cores by comparing percentage change in masses. Background information: Molecules are always in random, constant movement due to their kinetic energy. This causes the molecules of a cell to move around and bump into each other.   The random movement of molecules from an area of high co...

Osmosis Lab Bio

Michelle Yeung Bio 101 Cyrus MacFoy June 16,2015 Diffusion and Osmosis Exercise I. Molecules are always in constant movement. Molecular motion is a form of energy, the kinetic energy of molecules. The Brownian movement is the movement of small particles caused by the bombardment of the particles by millions of water molecule. This movement will continue indefinitely as long as there is water. My prediction for this lab is the solution of the water is hypertonic meaning there is a higher concentration of solutes outside of the cell. ...
