  • Osmosis: Potato and Sucrose Solution

    2207 Words  | 9 Pages

    Investigation of Factors Affect Osmosis in Potatoes  Aim  The aim of the following experiment was to investigate the effect of  varying the concentration of sucrose solution on osmosis in a potato.  Preliminary Experiments  One preliminary experiment was done before the main experiment. From  the preliminary, we were trying to find out how osmosis actually  occurred in potatoes, and gave us a vague idea on what the main  experiment would be like.  This preliminary will aid my prediction

  • Effect of Sucrose Solution on Osmosis Essays

    1012 Words  | 5 Pages

    Effect of Sucrose Solution on Osmosis Aim: The aim of the experiment is to show how varying the concentration of sucrose solution affects osmosis by changing different molar solutions of sucrose and water and how it affects the potato. Introduction: In this investigation I will be exploring the effect of varying concentration of sucrose sugar solution on the amount of activity between the solution and the potatoes. Osmosis is the movement of water molecules across a partially

  • The Effect The Molarity Of Sucrose Solution Has On Osmolarity

    1172 Words  | 5 Pages

    Title: The effect the molarity of sucrose solution has on osmolarity Introduction: Passive transport occurs when substances move from high concentration areas to a lower concentration region. Both Diffusion and Osmosis are examples of passive transport, however, osmosis is when water molecules move across a selectively permeable membrane. The plasma membrane, being a thin barrier to outside environment, is a selectively permeable membrane. Thus, it only allows certain particles to enter or exit

  • Compare The Rate Of Osmotic Pressure Between Tap Water And Sucrose Solution

    676 Words  | 3 Pages

    rate of osmotic pressure between tap water and surcose solutions. This will happen by using different concentrations of sucrose (20%, 40%, 60%) afterwards, the change in mass ratio would be observed over time. Other factors affect the rate of osmosis, factors like, pH, Temperature and also pressure. Hypothesis: With predictions, the dialysis bag acting as a semi-permeable membrane in the prescence of sucrose solution, where the water potential is high would cause the mass

  • The Effect Of Osmosis On O Shelled Chicken Eggs On Different Percentages Of Sucrose Solutions

    992 Words  | 4 Pages

    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

  • Ccea as Biology Coursework: an Investigation to Find the Water Potential of Potato and Carrot Tubers in a Sucrose Solution over a 24 Hour Period

    1394 Words  | 6 Pages

    An investigation to find the water potential of potato and carrot tubers in a sucrose solution, of concentration 0.00 – 0.50Mol, over a 24 hour period Interpretation Written Communication C1 From our graph it can be seen that the concentration of sucrose solution is 0.18 M at 0% change in mass for the potato and 0.355 M at 0% change in mass for the carrot. I will use these values to find the solute potential by using the calibration graph. I will work out the water potential by using the

  • Osmolarity: Concentration and Sucrose Solutions

    2118 Words  | 9 Pages

    conducted in order to explore the process of diffusion and osmosis and more importantly to investigate the question of “Does different concentrations of sucrose solutions have an effect on the final weight for the potato tubers?” In this experiment we estimated the osmolarity of potato tuber cores by submersing different potato cores into sucrose solutions of 0.0-0.6M, and weighing the potato. The results showed the weight of the potato tubers had the highest

  • The Administration Of Oral Sucrose Solution

    1167 Words  | 5 Pages

    Study Purpose The purpose of this study was to determine whether administration of oral sucrose solution would lower skin blood flow (SBF) and Neonatal Infant Pain Scale (NIPS) scores compared to a saline water placebo during a procedure during which blood was drawn from an infant’s heel. The infant’s response was to be measured at a baseline, immediately following the insertion of the lancet, and 5 minutes after the blood was collected. Type of Research (Quantitative or Qualitative) Quantitative

  • Sucrose : The Biological Consequences Of Carbohydrates

    964 Words  | 4 Pages

    oxygen branches. Sucrose is normal table sugar. Sucrose is a non reducing disaccharide composed of glucose and fructose linked via their anomeric carbons. It is obtained commercially from sugarcane, sugar beet (beta vulgaris), and other plants and used extensively as a food and a sweetener. (1) The molecular formula of sucrose is C12H22O11. The fructose and glucose rings are linked to each other by an oxygen atom. sugar is a term for any short-chain, sweet-tasting carbohydrate. Sucrose is a  disaccharide sugar
