Corn Syrup Lab Report

Satisfactory Essays
Of course, the various sources of error have affected the results from this lab. Since the initial mass of eggs used was different for each group, the experimenters had to find the percent change in mass to keep the results constant. To conclude, when the eggs were placed in a corn syrup solution with more solute, their masses steadily decreased. The inside of the eggs have a lower solute concentration than the corn syrup solution outside the cell. Water within the eggs flow outwards through the membrane to the syrup solution, decreasing the solute concentration. When the eggs were just placed in 200 mL of water, their masses greatly increased. The inside of the eggs have a higher solute concentration than the water outside the cell. Water
