a. What can you say about the concentration of the solution in the beaker based on the results shown in the diagram? START AFTER 24 HOURS 6. A U-tube is divided into 2 halves, A and B, by a membrane which is freely permeable to water and salt, but NOT to glucose. Side A is filled with a solution of 8% salt and 2% glucose, while side B is filled with 2% salt and 8% glucose. a. In terms of glucose concentration, which side is a hypotonic solution? b. What could you say about the water concentration on side A relative to side B? c. Which molecule(s) will move across the membrane and in which net direction(s)? 0.9% NaCl 5% NaCl Tap Water Selectively Permeable Membrane 4% Starch Solution UNKNOWN Solution 8% Salt 2% Glucose Side A 2% Salt 8% Glucose Side B

Jeffrey d. Notice that the levels of liquid in both A and B are equal. Do you think they will appear this way when the system reaches equilibrium ? Explain. 7. The solutions in the arms of the U-tube (at right) are separated by a selectively permeable membrane that is permeable to water and solute A, but not to solute B . 40g of solute A and 20g of solute B have been added to the water on side 1 of the U-tube. 20g of solute A and 40g of solute B have been added to the water on side 2 of the U-tube. Assume that after a period of time, equilibrium is reached.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
