  • Potato Osmosis Lab Report

    1078 Words  | 5 Pages

    Biology Design Practical Joshua Edwards What are effects of the volume of a potato and the amount of weight it loses when placed in salt solution? Introduction This design practical uses a potato’s surface area to volume ratio to see what affects it has on osmosis in different concentrations. Osmosis is the movement of water molecules through a cell membrane into an area of a higher solute concentration. The movement goes the way of the solvent with more solute because the lower solute concentration

    The potato peeling machine consists of seven parts, main frame, peeling drum, hopper, collection basin, waste remover, water supplying systems, and power transmission. The machine was evaluated using different potato bulb sizes (small, medium & large). A mixed sample of different sizes was also tested. The evaluation process was conducted between1000 and 1440rpm drum rotational speeds , three different peeling residence times (10,15 and 20seconds) and two different batch loads (1 and 1.5kg). The

  • Potato Osmosis Investigation

    will affect the mass of a Potato Investigation Background Information: In this investigation we are going to see how osmosis occurs in a potato and affects the mass by reducing or adding onto it. Osmosis is the diffusion of water between a semi-permeable membrane from a higher concentration to a lower concentration. Variables that can be explored in this investigation is how the concentration of salt solution could affect the mass as well as how the size of potato could affect the mass. Research

  • Water Potential Osmosis Experiment

    743 Words  | 3 Pages

    This experiment is an attempt to investigate the amount of water potential across root storage plant species. The root storage plant species that shall be used are the carrot and the potato and the method that shall be used is known as Chardakov’s method. Water potential is the tendency of water to enter or leave a cell. Water moves from an area or region of low water potential to an area of high water potential. It is important to note that the highest water potential is 0(the water potential
