Unformatted text preview: H2O is very permiable this explains why when the solute has a higher concentration of water we see an increase rate of weight over time. On the other hand sucrose is not as permiable this explains why the rate of weight over time is less than that of a solution with high water concentration. This proves that the concentration of osmotically active particles do influence the direction of water movement during osmosis. In the second expieriment we hypothesized that temperature does influence the rate of osmosis. The rate of osmosis in the egg increased wether the temperature was higher or lower. As the temperature goes up osmosis goes up. As temperature goes down osmosis goes up. We also hypothesized that the heated bath water would have a higher rate of osmosis than thecold bath water. We concluded that the change in temperature effects how well the water molocules move through the semi-permiable membrane of the egg. Andria Fisanich Professor Patrie Jonathan Boice MTWF 9-10...
