Conclusion:
1.       Create a Venn diagram comparing osmosis and diffusion. 2.       Part A of the experiment was a demonstration of diffusion. Give an example of diffusion occurring in the setup. Do you think osmosis occurred in this part of the experiment? If yes, explain why you believe this to be. 3.       Did the dialysis tubing serve as a selectively permeable membrane? Explain your answer. 4.       In part B, what caused the mass of the dialysis bags to change? Was there more or less water in the dialysis bags at the conclusion of the experiment? Explain. 5.       Was the distilled water in the beakers hypertonic or hypotonic in relation to...
