Unformatted text preview: solute is higher than a solution it's compared with. A hypotonic solution is the one whose concentration of solute is lower than a solution it's compared with. An isotonic solution is the one whose concentration is the same as the comparing solution. Upon learning the different types of solutions, each group was given cells in different types of solutions and was told to observe the osmotic behavior in cells. Results: Significance: Based on the results of sucrose molarity affecting the weight and volume of potato tubers, the relationship between the two is inverse. As sucrose molarity increases, the weight and the volume of the tubers decrease in a negative fashion. This indicates that solute concentrations affect the amount of water taken up by the tubor pieces....
