Osmosis Potato Lab?

Answer

Potatoes are a popular tool for demonstrating the principles of osmosis and diffusion. In a typical laboratory exercise, potatoes are cut into pieces, each of which is carefully weighed. The potato pieces are then immersed in solutions consisting of water only and solutions containing water and salt. Weighing the potato pieces after several days of immersion demonstrates that the potato pieces immersed in solutions containing salt lost weight and cellular turgor due to the migration of salt free water from within potato cells to the solutions with higher salt concentrations.
