Osmosis Egg Lab Report

Satisfactory Essays
An egg has a semi-permeable membrane, thus processes like osmosis could occur. Osmosis is the movement of water molecules from an area of higher water concentration to an area of a lower water concentration. Osmosis is important, especially for living organisms, as they help distribute nutrients in the body. An egg’s mass would change when it is soaked in different substances. The goal of this experiment was to investigate how an egg changes through osmosis. This experiment was done to show how substances affect the mass of an egg. To start off, an egg’s mass was measured by putting the egg in a beaker then placing it on a mass scale. The beaker was then filled with vinegar and left alone for twenty-four hours. After a day, the egg was taken
