The students will discover how the movement of material occurs through the selectively permeable cell membrane, a highly selective barrier they will observe the processes of diffusion and osmosis, first in two teacher-led demonstrations, and then through two lab activities: the diffusion of starch molecules through a plastic bag and potato. We done a lab in my biology class, in which we put a slice of a potato in salt water and it lost weight we have to do a lab report on it and i. Biology ia: osmosis 002223-0028 graph 2: effect of sucrose concentration on potato cell mass: mean percentage change in mass the error bars represent total percentage uncertainty at that data point.
I will also be using the same type of potato during the experiment to avoid any anomalous results as a different potato may affect the rate of osmosis. Osmosis and diffusion: potato cores as i was doing this lab i made sure to observe the temperature of the specifically plants in salt marshes.

Potato osmosis bi lab carefully remove the potato cylinder from the distilled water solution & pat it dry on a paper towel measure the length of the potato cylinder & record this length & the appearance of the cylinder on your data table (day 2) measure & record the mass of this cylinder.
Osmosis is the diffusion of water across a selectively permeable membrane (bell et al 2004) osmosis is the movement of water molecules from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration (brown 1999) hypertonic is the solution with a higher salt concentration hypotonic solution is the solution with the lower salt concentration.
