Introduction

The experiment revolves around selective permeability of the membranes of de-shelled chicken eggs. The eggs have been soaked in vinegar for about 3-4 days to dissolve its shells, which results in a delicate shell membrane connecting the inner contents of the egg. The shell is selectively absorbent only to water. The solution that is the dissolved in the internal contents of the egg is approximately 18-20% which is the solute concentration. solute concentration is the solution that will be dissolved by the egg. The process that will be tested for the egg is osmosis, which is the diffusion of water across a selectively permeable membrane from an area of low solute concentration to an area of high solute
