Experiment 1: Tonicity and the Animal Cell
In this experiment, you will explore the effects of osmosis on eggs. An egg is
surrounded by a permeable membrane and a hard shell. To observe the effects
of osmosis, the shell will first need to be removed.
Experiment 2: Tonicity and the Plant Cell
Plant cells are able to generate osmotic pressure, while other types of cells
cannot. This is due to specialized plant structures such as the cell wall, which
prevents lysis caused by osmosis. By taking advantage

Experiment 1: Identifying Cell Structures
The structure of a cell dictates the majority of its function. You will view a
selection of slides that exhibit unique structures that contribute to tissue function.

Experiment 1: Diffusion through a Liquid
In this experiment, you will observe the effect that different molecular weights have
on the ability of dye to travel through a viscous medium.

Experiment 1: Enzymes in Food
Amylase is an enzyme that facilitates digestion in humans. Specifically, it is an
enzyme that breaks down starch molecules into sugar molecules. This is why
people sometimes experience a sweet taste after sucking on a starch-

Effect of Temperature on Enzyme Activity
Enzymes are catalysts that speed up the rate of reaction that happens in the cells. The activity of
enzyme is affected by change in pH and temperature. I
