Lab Section 66 13 March 2008 Results The main objective of the osmosis experiment was to determine whether or not osmosis of water requires energy in order to transport liquids through the selectively permeable epidermal membrane tissue of the Zebrina plant species. In order to prove that energy was required for osmosis of water to occur, in the epidermal tissue, several experiments were designed and performed to prove this hypothesis. For example, in order to collect data to support the hypothesis, four epidermal grafts were taken of the outer epidermal layer of a Zebrina plant and placed into four different chemical treatments. This was done in order to determine whether present stomata were open or closed in reaction to the chemicals. Next, the observed open and closed stomata were recorded and compared to the rest of the class’s results. These results indicated that the majority of open stomata occurred in distilled water (Figure 1). For instance, when observing the distilled water treatment slide the class found
