Investigation For this experiment we plan to investigate the effect of varying concentration of a certain sugar solution on the amount of osmotic activity between the solution and a potato core of a given size. Osmosis is defined as the net movement of water or any other solution's molecules from a region in which they are highly concentrated to a region in which they are less concentrated. The water concentration, if left long enough will come to a state of equilibrium where the amount of water in each region is equal. This movement must take place across...
saturation point of the cores. The range of concentrations was adequate but I would possibly create more concentrations if I repeated the experiment so that I would have more varied results, i.e. 0.10m, 0.15m, 0.20m, and so on.

This test showed us that plant cells perform osmosis, and that; osmosis will eventually create equilibrium if given enough time.

To improve this test if doing it again I would, use fresher potatoes, and more variations of the concentration of the sucrose solution. Also I could try adding another variable, length of time in the sucrose/water solution.
