  • The Effect Of Water On Concentration On The Concentration

    1352 Words  | 6 Pages

    Abstract: The main purpose of the experiment was to test the idea that water would move from the higher concentration to the lower concentration. In order to test this theory, we placed potato slices in 7 different containers, each containing different concentrations of NaCl, to measure the weight change from osmosis. The containers ranged from 0M NaCl all the way to .6M NaCl. We measured the potato slices before and after placing the slices in the solutions and recorded the net change in weight

  • What Is The Concentration Of Salt Concentration In Osmosis

    mass. From these results, it can be concluded that as the salt concentration get higher, the potato’s mass starts to decrease.When there is barely any salt in the solution the mass will increase. When comparing the turgidity of the cells a similar type of pattern emerged. As the salt concentration got higher, the potato became flaccid. However, at lower salt concentrations the potato remained crisp. An increase in the salt concentrations ended up changing the turgidity of the potatoes and making them

  • Osmosis in Different Concentrations

    2449 Words  | 10 Pages

    I am going to investigate osmosis when potato is placed in different  concentrations of sucrose. I am aiming to witness osmosis in 5  different concentrations of sucrose. I will use 5 varying  concentrations so that I have a wider spread to compare the results,  and check that I don’t have any anomalies  Prediction  Osmosis is the process of diffusion of water molecules from a weaker  solution into a stronger solution, through a semi permeable membrane.  The tiny pores in the membrane

  • Discovery Of The Concentration Of Phosphate

    1250 Words  | 5 Pages

    The goal of the lab was to discover the concentration of phosphate in various colas in order to help with a project for a major cola company. Before we could accomplish this final goal, a Spec 20 was used to test three colors of food colorings. A Spec 20 is an instrument used to “measure the intensity of a light beam before and after it passes through a sample and compares these two intensities” (What does a Spectronic 20 measure). The instrument is able to measure the percent transmittance and

  • The Concentration Of Water Molecules

    solution to try to equalize the concentration. The water molecules are always moving, and the rate of the movement depends on the concentration gradient. The bigger the difference in concentration the faster the molecules move down the concentration gradient. To figure out what diffusion was, I used the book and my notes from the lecture. There are three types of diffusion: Hypertonic, Hypotonic and Isotonic. The Hypertonic solution has a higher concentration of NaCl. The Hypotonic solution

  • Sedimentation: Tangent and Concentration

    5169 Words  | 21 Pages

    supernatant liquid and denser slurry having a higher concentration of solids. This is usually accomplished by allowing the particles to settle through the force of gravity, mechanically using centrifugal force, or electrostatically using an electric current. Continuous sedimentation tanks are usually used in wastewater treatment facilities to separate suspended particles from wastewater. This experiment aims to determine the effect of initial concentration and initial height of the slurry on its settling

  • The Effects of Concentration on Osmosis

    1461 Words  | 6 Pages

    Introduction: This experiment was used to examine the hypothesis that: Osmosis is dependent on the concentrations of the substances involved. Diffusion is the passage of solute molecules from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration (Campbell & Reece, 2005). An example is ammonia diffusing throughout a room. A solute is one of two components in a chemical solution. The solute is the substance dissolved in the solution. The solvent, the other component, is any liquid in

  • Concentration Of Iron And Chemical Substance

    Concentration of Iron in an Unknown Substance Jack Boswell Experiment 5 Megan Otting and Dr. Caster Introduction: The objective of this lab was to determine the concentration of iron (Fe+2) in an unknown substance using a spectrophotometer. Spectrophotometry is a process that uses a sample solution to determine how much light a chemical substance absorbs by measuring the intensity of a beam of light passing through the solution. Every substance transmits light over a specific wavelength range

  • The Effect Of Solute Concentration On Osmosis

    1529 Words  | 7 Pages

    The Effects of Solute Concentration on Osmosis Introduction: Diffusion is the movement of certain molecules toward the direction of equilibrium, and is an important process in eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. Osmosis is a specific type of diffusion that refers to the diffusion of water, which is an important factor in many types of cells without cell walls because the water potential of a cell must be similar or equal to its environment in order for the cell to function properly. In cells, a semi

  • Resistance Of A Solute From Concentration

    1805 Words  | 8 Pages

    movement is diffusion, where solutes move from an area of high concentration to low concentration. Diffusion is directly related to molecular kinetic energy, taking in no energy input. The movement of a solute from an area of low concentration to high concentration requires energy input (ATP). The process by which water moves through membranes by a special kind of diffusion is called osmosis. Like solutes, water moves down its concentration gradient. Water moves from areas of high potential to low potential
