Lab 7 Introduction Question 1: How will increasing the number of yeast cells affect the rate of ATP production by the cells (in moles ATP/hr) if the sugar concentration in the experiment is held constant. Hypothesis: Increasing the number of yeast cells will increase the rate of ATP production by the cells if the sugar concentration is held constant. Supporting Facts: 1. Tonicity is the ability of a solution to cause a cell to lose or gain water. Tonicity of a solution depends on the concentration of solutes that cross the membrane of the cell compared to the concentration of solutes in the cell. (Campbell “Biology” 7 th ed. Text,pp.132). 2. Osmosis is the diffusion of water across a selectively permeable membrane. The water diffuses across the membrane from a lower solute concentration to a higher one until the solute concentration on both sides is equal. (Campbell “Biology” 7 th ed. Text,pp.132) 3. If an animal cell is placed in an isotonic environment, then there will be no net
