The purpose to this experiment was to study the effect of osmosis in de-shelled chicken eggs in different percentages of sucrose solutions. Osmosis is the process, in which, water moves across a differentially permeable membrane. The eggs were soaked in vinegar to remove the outside hard shell but still leave the egg in its membrane. By placing the six de-shelled in different sucrose solutions, we tested the rate of osmosis. The eggs were placed in the solutions for an hour and weighed in fifteen minute intervals. Then, each weight was recorded and graphed. The results showed that the egg in the water solution gained the most weigh and the only other egg that gained a little weight was the one in the 10% solution. All the other eggs in the different solutions lost weight, even the unknown solution. According to the results the egg that was in the distilled water solution gained weight because it is the hypertonic solution. All the other eggs lost weight because they were placed in hypotonic solutions with different concentrations of sucrose. The egg that was placed in the higher concentration of sucrose lost the most weight. So, the higher the concentration of sucrose, the more water the egg lost.
Osmosis took place in the egg under a variety of conditions because the membrane of the egg has tiny openings where water can pass through from high to low concentrations. On day one, it was a hypotonic solution because the higher concentration of water in the vinegar moved to the smaller concentration in the egg. This means the egg was filled with water, which resulted in the eggs increase in size. On day three, the hypotonic solution occurred because the corn syrup had a lower concentration of water than the egg. That means the egg released water into the corn syrup, which resulted in the eggs decrease in size. On day four, the egg was placed in water which resulted in an isotonic solution where the concentrations become even. This
In conclusion, the data that was collected helped tell us that the solutions greatly affected the cell of the egg because it caused the egg’s mass to increase than decrease. Also saw how the solutions played a role in the phospholipid bilayer and saw how it altered the shape of the egg. However, it does not support my hypothesis on the affect the egg would undergo onced placed in sugar and water but sugar was not used in this experiment, but water was used and it didn’t affect the shape of the egg, all it did was cause the egg to be in a isotonic state. According to Khan Academy (2017), states that a cell is isotonic “When the extracellular fluid has the same osmolarity as the cell, there will be no net movement in or out of the cell”. Which
The solutions are 0% sucrose, 10% sucrose, 20% sucrose, 30% sucrose, 40% sucrose and an unknown sucrose concentration. We then weighed each egg separately to the nearest gram in order to have an initial starting weight to compare to the results throughout our experiment being conducted. The eggs were then placed in each beaker for 12 intervals at a time. After every 12 minutes the eggs were taken out and weighed to see if the weight of the egg changed. With a total of five intervals (12, 24, 36, 48, 60) the steps were repeated till the egg had reached the total time of 60 minutes. The changes in weight of the eggs were then added into a data table showing the weight of the chicken eggs in grams vs. the time in minutes. In a second data table the weight changes (g) vs. time (min.) between the eggs were taken and used the difference from each time and subtracted it from the initial
What will happen to the egg when a student tests osmosis with 3 different soultions in a cup.The student is trying to see or find the effects of osmosis on an egg.Osmosis is the movement of water molecules through a selecfively permeable membrane. Diffuision is when something spreads more widely and equilibrium means when somethings is at rest due to equal opposite forces. The student wants to find out if the egg will shrink, fill up, or change in any way.
The Osmosis and Diffusion lab was conducted to provide us with information on how built up mucus affects those conflicted by the recessive genetic disease, Cystic Fibrosis., due to a mutation to the membrane regulating chloride (Cl-). This mutation prevents the Cl- from leaving the cell causing the amount of sodium (Na+) in epithelial cells, which results in extreme mucus on the lungs and airways causing this disease to be fatal if not treated but treatment does not equate to a long lifetime. During the lab we took the data from three parts: Diffusion, Osmosis in an Elodea Cell, and finally the Role of Osmosis in Cystic Fibrosis. During Part 1 we looked at diffusion across a semipermeable membrane for starch and glucose, which resulted in both having a negative solution when placed in a semipermeable membrane. Then we looked at osmosis in the Elodea Cell to watch for the occurrence of Plasmolysis, when a cell’s plasma membrane pulls away from the cell, and how a plant cell is affected by both hypertonic and hypotonic solutions. Finally, we observed the role of Osmosis in Cystic Fibrosis using dialysis bags to represent a normal cell and a Cystic Fibrosis cell with the normal containing 1% NaCl while the Cystic Fibrosis bag contained 10% NaCl. After we ran the experiment, we looked at the Percent Change in Mass and compared them after 30 minutes. We found that Cystic Fibrosis cells didn’t change mass as much as the normal cell ending with a change in mass over -1%. The
By the end of the experiment, it was predicted that the egg would be swollen when left in water and shriveled when left in corn syrup. Based on the data given from the table above, the prediction is, more or less, right. The egg did, in fact, shrivel up and the weight of the egg did go down as well. Compared to the beginning of the experiment where the egg had an initial mass of 81.50 grams, but by the end of the water aspect of the research the egg ended up weighing 93.74 grams, therefore, there was an increase of 12.24 grams. Using the data table the weight from the start the syrup aspect of the experiment was 93.74 grams, after being left in syrup the egg weighed a total of 57.32 grams, thus, the egg decreased in weight by 36.42 grams.
More specifically for the experiment we will need four deshelled eggs, four beakers and distilled water with a certain percentage of sucrose, a timer, and a scale to weigh the eggs. Using the process of osmosis, we will determine the weight of the eggs after being soaked in the solution. The four beakers each had distilled water in them with sucrose but all contained different amounts. One beaker contained 0% sucrose. The other beakers contained 10%, 40%, and an “unknown” amount of sucrose. Before placing the eggs into the solution, we are to weigh each egg separately to the nearest 0.1g and record this in table. Once that step has been completed, we then place one egg in each of the beakers separately that was marked with the amounts of sucrose. At fifteen-minute intervals, remove the deshelled egg from the water inside the beaker and wipe off all the excess water. After that process has been completed, we will weigh each egg separately to see if they have gained or lost their mass/weight. Once each egg has been weighed accurately, the recorded data is placed in the table provided. This step goes on for an hour. The deshelled eggs in this experiment will increase in mass in the different types of distilled water. This lab session provided the class with the evidence that diffusion and osmosis occurs within the different types of solutions.
It is time to take measurements and collect data. Take a ruler and measure the height of both eggs. The take a bit of yarn (enough to wrap around the eggs) and wrap the yarn around both eggs separately to get their individual circumferences. Then place both eggs on the grams scale individually to get their weights. Observe their color and shape to get some qualitative data. Rinse the beakers and fill both with 125 ml of water each. Place one egg in a beaker and place the other egg in the other beaker. Record the density by subtracting the current reading of water in the cup by the original amount of water in the beaker. To begin the experiment, remove the egg shells from the eggs. Take one beaker and fill it with 100 ml of vinegar. Take
Table 1, shows the average change in mass and average rate of osmosis of the egg after it had been soaking for ten minutes in the distilled water, 1%, 2%, 5% and 10% Sodium Chloride solutions. The table also shows the SEM for each of the averages. All of the averages show that as the salt concentration increases from 0% to 2%, the rate of change in mass decreases. From the 5% salt concentration to 10%, the rate of change in mass begins to increase. This indicates that somewhere between 2% and 5%, an isotonic environment was reached. This is all shown in the results, as the average rate of osmosis in the egg after being submerged in the distilled water is 0.105 g/min, the average rate of osmosis after being submerged in the 1% solution is
The primary purpose of the lab was to test and observe the effects of the process of osmosis on decalcified eggs. Before the process, the initial weights of the eggs were taken and noted. Two eggs were then immersed in a deionized water solution. The same was repeated to the other two solutions of 20% and 40% sucrose. The weights of the eggs were measured after 15 minutes to note the change in mass due to osmosis and again after 60 minutes to take the final measurement. Overall, while some human error might arise in the weighing process, care was taken in handling the eggs and during the weighing process. As such, it was found that the eggs behaved as predicted. It was found that the eggs placed in the hypertonic solution lost
This is the final step of the experiment. The shell-less egg was now placed into a new cup, but very carefully, as the egg was more fragile than when it was soaked in vinegar. The egg in the new cup was then covered with water. The egg sat in the water for a 24 hour time period once again. During this 24 hour time period the eggs appearance and size were once again recorded. After the time period had completed, the egg was removed from the water and was very carefully patted dry. Since the egg was now swollen, extra care was needed when holding the egg. The swollen egg was placed on the scale on last time and its mass was recorded as M3.
Four eggs that were previously soaked in vinegar were placed into four beakers with different levels of a glucose solution. The four beakers were filled with distilled water, 0.5M glucose, 1.5M glucose and 2.0M glucose. After the eggs were placed in the solutions, they were left for 60 minutes but weighed every 15 minutes to record whether there was an increase or a decrease in mass. The various masses were recorded as well as the percent change in mass. These were then recorded as line graphs. From this it was able to be determined if the egg had been in a hypotonic, hypertonic or isotonic solution, thus being able to determine if osmosis had occurred.
The eggs will increase and decrease in mass when placed solutions with different amount of solutes. This
4.15. The purpose of this investigation was to use our knowledge on osmosis and diffusion and apply it to a de-shelled egg and see how it reacts being submerged in a sodium chloride solution. The hypothesis was that the egg would expand and increase in both size and weight this is proven correct in the table of
