Nikhil Chinmaya February 18, 2008 Osmosis Lab Introduction: The Shell membrane is an extracellular matrix of “tough” proteins; in this lab, we will be placing decalcified eggs in different glucose solutions. Osmosis is the movement of a solute, through a semi-permeable membrane from a region of high concentration to a region of low concentration, Osmosis can be used in cells to provide energy and help transportation through the body. In this lab, we will place the decalcified eggs in a hypertonic, hypotonic, and an isotonic solution to see the rate of molarities occurring in the respective solutions and how it will affect the rate of osmosis will be effected in the different solutions. The proposed hypothesis in this lab is that osmosis should increase in increasing concentration of sucrose and osmosis should increase as time increases. Results : In figure 1, we can see a many varying graphs and different behaviors as the time of soaking increases, however the we see a decreasing trend in the of molarities with a
