AP Biology

In the Osmosis and Diffusion Lab students used potato cores submersed in various sucrose solutions to determine the osmolarity and water potential. Student then measured if the potatoes absorbed water, secreted water, or had no change in mass. They graphed the collected data and used the graph to determine the point of equilibrium (isotonic solution).
