How Does Changing The Surface Area Affect The Rate Of Osmosis

Background Information Surface area will increase the speed of reaction as the greater the surface of the solid reactants, the more particles are required to expose and ‘cover’ the capacity of the solid. Increased surface area results in an increased chance of collisions between reactant particles. Since the collisions become more frequent and abundant, the rate of reaction increases. Aim The aim of the experiment is to see if a greater surface area of a dissolvable tablet creates a faster or...

Investigation: A factor that affects the movement of water in and out of cells. Osmosis: movement of water from a region of high water potential to a region of low water potential through a partially permeable membrane. High water potential = lots of free water molecules, low solute concentration Low water potential = very few free water molecules, high solute concentration Factors That Affect the Movement of Water in and out of Cells * Solute concentration * If one solution...

Total Surface Area and Rate of Reaction

acid. Planning Aim To determine how the surface area of the tablets affects the rate of the reaction. To determine which form of tablets gives the biggest surface area resulting in the fastest reaction rate. Investigation question: What is the relationship between the total surface area of the tablets and the rate of the reaction? Hypothesis: The rate of reaction will be the fastest when the tablets crushed into powder as there is a bigger total surface area resulting in more effective collisions...

An investigation how sugar solutions of different concentrations affect osmosis. Research Osmosis is the diffusion of water across a partially permeable membrane from a dilute solution to one of a higher concentration. If a solution has a low concentration then the amount of (in the case of my investigation) sugar, the solute, will be low and the solution will be weak. If there is high amount of sugar then the solution will be concentrated (have a high concentration). When two solutions...

How Surface Area Affects the Buoyancy of Wood

different areas, and especially in the making of ships. The surface area that is touching the water of the ship is very large, due to the shape of the hull, and that, beside the density of the ship, is what keeps the ship floating. An important example of how surface area affects buoyancy is when people float in the water. Everyone knows that it is much easier to stay afloat when we are lying on our backs than when we are in a standing position in the water. But how does the surface area of an object...

Osmosis in Potatoes

How is Osmosis Affected By the Concentration PLANNING Independent Variable The independent variable in this experiment is the thing that I will be changing in the experiment. This is the range of concentrations that have been obtained by diluting the original 1M solution of Sucrose. This is therefore the only thing that is going to be altered as I am investigating how different percentage of water molecules affects the weight of the the potato thus the rate and direction of osmosis. ...

Surface Area to Volume Ratio and the Relation to the Rate of Diffusion.

Surface Area to Volume Ratio and the Relation to the Rate of Diffusion Aim and Background This is an experiment to examine how the Surface Area / Volume Ratio affects the rate of diffusion and how this relates to the size and shape of living organisms. The surface area to volume ratio in living organisms is very important. Nutrients and oxygen need to diffuse through the cell membrane and into the cells. Most cells are no longer than 1mm in diameter because small cells enable nutrients and oxygen...

To Investigate How Does the Concentration of Hydrochloric Acid Affect the Rate of Reaction?

To investigate how does the concentration of Hydrochloric acid affect the rate of reaction? Outline I aim to discover how different concentrations of Hydrochloric acid influence the rates of reaction. In order to carry out this investigation I have decided to use marble chips, which I will vary the sizes as powder, small chips and large chips. I will also be changing the concentration, the different concentrations are as follows 0.2m, 0.5m, 1m, 1.5, 2m. I have chosen these concentrations as they...

How Does the Amount of C02 Affect the Rate of Photosynthesis?

How does the Amount of CO2 Affect the Rate of Photosynthesis? There are a number of variables that can affect the photosynthesis rate of Canadian water weed (Elodea). They are as follows:  The amount of light: an increased light level increases the rate of photosynthesis to a certain point where at another factor limits the photosynthesis rate.  The temperature: Increased temperature increases the rate of photosynthesis to a certain temperature, after which, essential enzymes...
