  • Mass Of The Potato Chip
    785 words
    Osmosis Investigation Introduction & Aims At present I am investigating Osmosis, and I have devised a experiment to investigate the rate of it. I have been provided with potatoes, and all the common laboratory equipment. I will look at 2 variables, one discontinuous, one continuous. For my discontinuous veritable I have chosen TYPE OF POTATO. I will have 3 different types of potato, chosen randomly, and numbered A, B & C. For my continuous veritable I have chosen TIME. Every 5 minutes, I will re...
  • Masses Of Potato Chips
    1,544 words
    Osmosis Investigation We are trying to find out what the concentration of the solutions is inside the vacuole of a potato cell. We will investigate how the mass of the potato chips change in different sucrose solution concentrations. We will use osmosis to do this. I will be measuring and controlling many different variables, these include; -The dependent Variable - Weight of potato chip Independent Variable - Concentration of sucrose Control Variables consist of; -1. Temperature 2. Surface area...
  • Poore Brothers New Tortilla Chips
    1,520 words
    Poore Brothers Brothers Don and Jay Poore had worked on potato chip packaging equipment and thought they would strike out on their own. While servicing packaging machines in Pennsylvania, Don and Jay had met a gentleman who knew a lot about making potato chips in small kettles One Batch at a Time and he helped them get started. By cutting their chips a little thicker and cooking them in kettles, their product had a serious crunch that no other chip had. In 1983, they started a small chip manufac...
  • Extra Water Onto The Potato Chips
    1,262 words
    ... After 30 minutes I drained out the solutions in the sink and placed all the chips on the paper towel in the order I had put them in the test tubes as to not confuse myself as to which chip came from which solution. 10. I dried each chip with the paper towel and then placed each one on the scales so that I could weigh them. 11. Each potato was measured accurately on the electronic scales and then the weights were recorded. 12. As I had time after doing the first set of results I redid the exp...
  • Popcorn In Great Britain
    1,137 words
    Introduction: Harvey Wallbanger, president of Harvey Wallbanger Popcorn, entered the popcorn market in 1972. He is considered to be the person most responsible for creating a gourmet popcorn market in the United States. His claim to fame is that his corn is lighter, fluffier, "tenderer", and bigger than ordinary popcorn. He also boasts that his popcorn has fewer hard, un popped kernels than competitive products. Harvey's company sells popcorn to several markets in the United States: 1. Un popped...
  • Concentration Of The Sugar Solution And Water
    2,012 words
    OSMOSIS INA POTATO CHIP Aim: To investigate the effect of varying concentration of a certain sugar solution on the amount of osmotic activity between the solution and a potato chip of a given size. Aim: To investigate the effect of varying concentration of a certain sugar solution on the amount of osmotic activity between the solution and a potato chip of a given size. Osmosis is defined as the net movement of water or any other solutions molecules from a region in which they are highly concentr...
  • Water Molecules From The Chip
    1,046 words
    Background Information. I think that this practical will be based on osmosis because, Osmosis is the random movement of water molecules from a high concentration to a low concentration. This will then happen between the chips and the liquid in the McCarthy bottles. This already tells us that the chips will vary in size from the concentration of water. Plan of the Experiment. Method 1 Firstly we shall set up the experiments by getting the apparatus and the materials (potatoes) ready. We shall the...
  • Concentration Of Sugar In Potato Cells
    1,140 words
    Aim: To find out the concentration of sugar in potato cells. Plan: Background science: Osmosis is diffusion of a special kind. It is diffusion of water across a semi-permeable membrane. Osmosis is very popular in plant cells. Osmosis works in plant cells because the cell membranes of the plant cells are partially permeable membranes. The cell sap inside of the vacuole is the strong solution. Therefore the water diffuses into the plant cell by osmosis and weakens the cell sap. Potato cells are al...
