Experiment 3: Osmosis - Direction and Concentration Gradients
In this experiment, we will investigate the effect of solute concentration on osmosis. A
semi-permeable membrane (dialysis tubing) and sucrose will create an osmotic
environment similar to that
Experiment 2: Exploring Cell Size
Have you ever wondered why cells don't grow past a certain size? There is a size limit for
cells that they cannot surpass. Once they reach this value, cells divide and form two
smaller, daughter cells. Why do they do that
