Osmosis and the Deshelled Chicken Egg 2 October 2007 Discussion/ Interpretation For our first investigation we had to compare rates of osmosis to see if temperature had any effect on the osmotic rate. Our original hypothesis was that as time increased the weight of the eggs would decrease, therefore having a negative effect on the osmotic rate. Based on the results of our investigation the aforementioned hypothesis was not supported. This could be due to other variables affecting the procedure. These variables are the size of the egg, the amount of solution, the temperature of the solution, and the type of solution each egg was placed in. Temperature and rate had a positive effect during the first investigation which was not expected. To make our results more accurate in future investigations we could make all other variables (size of egg, amount of solution, and type of solution) the same changing only the independent variable of temperature. For our second investigation we had to observe whether the concentration of
