The water potential of the solution at equilibrium

This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

1. The water potential of the solution at equilibrium will be equal to the water potential of the potato cells. What is the water potential of the potato cells in the lab you completed? Show ALL of your work in the space below. Include the formula. Don’t forget units. (3 points)
2. Predictthe direction in which water will flow given the following information: A student calculates that the water potential of a solution in a dialysis bag is equal to -6.25 bars (s = -6.25, p= 0). The water potential of a solution surrounding the bag is -3.25 bars (s = -3.25, p= 0). In which direction will water flow? Justifyyour answer.) (2 points)
