Estimating the osmolarity of plant cells purpose: to estimate the osmolarity of potato tuber tissue by finding the molarity where the weight of the potato tuber tissue does not change. Effect of sucrose molarity on potato tuber weight using sucrose solutions to determine osmolarity of potato tubers based on weight by thomas pelikan biology 200a section 004 kimberly schmidt october 2, 2012 abstract: in this experiment we were trying to determine the osmolarity of potato tubers by weighing them before and after incubating them in solutions of sucrose with varying molarities . First we weighed 7 potato tuber cylinders and it says to predict the osmolarity of the potato tuber tissue how would i do that on the weight . The effect of osmosis on potato cells essay introduction in this experiment i am going to investigate the effect of varying concentration of a differing glucose solution on the amount of osmotic activity, between the solution and a potato tuber of a given size. A transgenic study on affecting potato tuber yield by sucrose transporter genes ossut5z and ossut2m under the potato plantlets grown in tissue .
The sweet potato's change in weight will be greatest in terms of osmolarity due to its size, advantage over other tuber osmolarity subjects sucrose solution (1 . Osmosis in plant cells the instructor will use a mandoline to cut uniform sticks of potato tuber tissue you will be total volume of potato sap the corrected . To find the water potential of the cells we need to find out at which concentration of sucrose solutions was a state of equilibrium obtained, ie the solution in which there was no change in the volume or mass of the tissue which is equal to that of the cells.
Potato osmolarityagain hi, after doing a diffusion/osmosis lab, i am being asked to determine the osmolarity of a the potato cores we recorded the cores' initial mass, placed them in sucrose solutions of varying molarities, and then weighed them one day later. Seven cups were set up, one as a control containing water and potato tissue, the other six with differing amounts of 1 m sorbitol stock solution and distilled water, and uniform cylinders of potato, in order to measure the gain or loss of water as an indicator of net osmosis. Estimating osmolarity by change in weight and it says to predict the osmolarity of the potato tuber tissue how would i do that concentration on . In this lab we will test samples of potato tissue to see how much water they absorb or release in salt solutions of varying concentrations changes in potato mass . Estimate the natural osmolarity of a potato tuber tissue how can you determine the osmolarity of a potato when there is a weight change in the potato tuber from the sucrose solution.
Diffusion and osmosis in the following experiment you will estimate the osmolarity of potato tuber cells the weight of the potato tissue does not change . Osmolarity and tonicity: an inquiry laboratory potato plugs in different solutions to observe changes in the volume and texture of the plug plant tissue . Social issues term papers: biology lab - estimating osmolarity by change in volume of potato tuber tissue.
View lab report - osmolarity lab from biol 105 at university of san francisco october 1, 2013 estimating osmolality by change in volume results: all of the potato tuber cylinders decreased in size. Table 1 estimating osmolarity of potato tuber using the most negative percent change in weight of the potato when placed diffusion on potato tissue by changes . Estimating osmolarity by change in weight estimating osmolarity of sweet potato in this experiment, we measured the osmolarity of a sweet potato tissue the . The objective of this lab is to measure the water potential of potato tuber tissues we will monitor water uptake or loss by tissues in different sucrose solutions to identify an isotonic solution with water potential equal to that of the tissue.
