Introduction: Biology is the science of life and thus one of the many sciences that are part of everyday life. Diffusion and osmosis are processes that are a constant in our lives, even though many don’t realize it. Medicaments such as Fervex can be drunk only after diffusion has taken place and the powder granules have diffused into the hot cup of water. On the other hand, every day we become unintentional witnesses of osmosis when the roots of the plants try to suck up the water from the soil (1). The purpose of this lab is to show clearly in an understandable way how diffusion and osmosis happen and to help one realize the way they occur. If a cube of beat is put in hot water (5 trials – 5 temperatures: 60 ºC, 70 ºC, 80 ºC, 90 ºC, and 100ºC), then the mass of the beat cube will decrease because thanks to osmosis, water will move from the beat to the clear water outside it, because in osmosis water would move from places with low to places with high concentration of w...

Diffusion And Osmosis Lab

Diffusion and Osmosis Experiment Methods/Materials: 7.1 Experiment: Rate of Diffusion of Solutes In the initial set up of this experiment I had 2 sets of 3 screw-cap test tubes that had each been half-filled with 5% gelatin and 1-mL of the correct dye (either potassium dichromate, aniline blue, or Janus green) in each of the test tubes. I labeled the 3 test tubes of set 1 with which die they contained and marked them “5 ˚C”. Then with the other set I did the same exact thing, except I labeled these test tubes “Room Temperature”. I then placed set 1 of the test tub...

Osmosis Lab Report

NAME: Donna Ha TITLE: Measuring the Rate of Osmosis Using “De-shelled” Chicken Eggs INTRODUCTION: In order to fully understand the concept of this experiment, one must first be introduced to diffusion. Diffusion is a spontaneous process by which molecule particles move from one area that is highly concentrated to another area in which its concentration is lower. Cells contain fluids and are surrounded by fluids; in order for a cell to function it is required to be in a balanced state. The progress in which a cell is in its balanced state is called equilibrium. Diffusion...

Alexandria Lindstrom DIFFUSION/OSMOSIS LAB Objective: To demonstrate and explain the movement of different organic molecules through a non-living membrane. 1. What happened to the iodine, the starch, the glucose and the water in your experiment? Explain which molecules did/did not cross the membrane and in which direction they moved. Substance Prediction Results Starch Starch will stay in the cellulose tubing The results were correct Glucose Glucose will defuse and mov...
