PROCEDURE
1. Add 200ml of distilled water, 40ml sucrose solution and 5g salt into three beakers respectively. Record the solutions concentrations, volumes, and weights. ②Use a cutter to cut the potato to the similar size. Record the weight of pieces potato. ③Put the three potatoes slice into each beaker. Cover the beakers with glass covers and leave them for 48 hours. ④Carefully remove the potato slices from the distilled water solution & pat it dry on a paper towel. Weight the potato slices immediately. Record the final weight of the pieces. ⑤Clean up the equipment & area and return materials to their proper place. DATA AND/OR OBSERVATIONS
