PURPOSE• To observe osmosis in a cell.1)Place eggs in vinegar to remove the cell.2)Measure it’s weight.3)Measure it’s width.4)Place egg in water and corn syrup.5)Weigh and measure it again.
HYPOTHESIS• Corn Syrup:I think the egg is going to get heavier for it’s weight.I think that the egg will get a little bit bigger for it’s size.I think the egg will look shiny.
HYPOTHESIS• Water:I think that the egg will get Lighter.I think that the egg will stay the same size.I think the for the eggs look will be the same.
MATERIALS• Corn Syrup• Water Vinegar• Balance• String/Measuring Tape
OBSERVATIONS CORN SYRUPCorn Syrup Before After Weight: Weight: 71.3 48.8 Size: Size: 17cm 13cm
OBSERVATIONS WATER EGGWater Before After Weight: Weight: 62.2 77.0 Size: Size: 14cm 18.5cm
OBSERVATIONS CORN SYRUP/WATER EGG1. Corn Syrup:2. Shrivelled3. Bubbles were on top of the glass4. Floating More bubbles Foam More bubbles5. Water: Puffy
24 HOURS LATER• Both Eggs:• Squishy• Foamy
CONCLUSION• My Corn Syrup hypothesis is wrong:• The egg got lighter than heavier.• The egg got smaller, not bigger.• The corn syrup egg looked different because it looked all squishy and I said it would look all shiney.• My Water Egg hypothesis:• The egg got heavier, not lighter.• I thought the egg would stay the same size, but then it got larger.• The water looked the same just like what I said.
