Unformatted text preview: 6. See attached graph 7. The weight change is the result of starch not diffusing through the dialysis tube. Also, the weight increased because of the process of osmosis. As time increased so did the weight. This shows a direct relationship between the time and weight. 8. In order to do this, you would put the Na+ ions and K+ ions in a dialysis tube that has a certain MWCO to allow the Na+ ions out, but not the K+ ions. Then the tube would only have K+ ions inside. The Na+ ions would be outside of the solution. This would allow you to transfer the Na+ ions into a new solution. 9. An example of the process of dialysis used in practice for people is Kidney Dialysis. It acts as an artificial kidney where blood is circulated outside the body and cleaned inside a dialysis machine before returning to the patient. This removes wastes and extra fluid from blood. This process is used in place of kidneys lost to disease, birth defects, or injury....
