4. In relation to the cell wall the cell membrane sits next to the semipermeable protective layer. While the cell wall is visible the cell membrane is too thin and transparent to see easily. 5. The visible parts of the cell that control water concentration are the cell membrane, proteins, and vacuoles.The changes expected when the cells are exposed to the solutions are changes in size. 6. If the treatment is increasing turgor pressure then the cell’s volume will increase. If pressure is reduced cell volume will decrease. 7. You could determine which solution is isotonic to cells because the cell wouldn’t increase Adriann Lausen Demi Dobbin AP Bio # 3 Mrs. Houseman 20 September 2019

or decrease in volume.To determine osmosis in the plant pieces through measurement we would weigh them. 8. You can calculate water potential in a cell by using osmotic potential and pressure potential.?The water potential in the different plants was not the same.If the potato had been placed in a dry area for several days before the experiment, it would be dehydrated causing its reaction to the solutions to differ because of the change in water potential. 9. When potatoes are in the ground they don’t swell with water when it rains. This happens because the skin of the potato doesn’t allow water through.

    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.
