Research Project: Potato The potato originated in the South American Andes, but its heartland of wild genetic diversity reaches from Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, southern Brazil, northward into Central America, Mexico, and the southwestern United States. Potato was first cultivated between 3 and 7 thousand years ago, some scientists believe they may have grown wild in the region as long as 13,000 years ago. Potato is the third most important...

Potato Lab

Keegan Bauman Potato Lab Dr. Peano Block 1 Introduction: Potatoes are just your average food; they have been around for as long as the human race can remember. In this lab we will make them be a prime example of osmosis, which is a transport mechanism. In this lab the problem being tested was what environment affects the mass of the potatoes the most. The independent variable is the environments used salt, water and iodine solution. The dependent variable is the mass of the potato after being...

Potato Research

land of Bangladesh. In last few decades, the demand of potato is increasing rapidly. As a developing country, the people of Bangladesh are not so affluent. That’s why they prefer potato to rice or wheat. The demand of potato is thus increasing as it is cheaper than the other two horticultural product rice and wheat. Last year, the production of potato is massive. But, that huge production makes a little impact on the price level of potato. The price at the point of production is relevantly low...

Determing the Osmolarity of a Potato

of a Potato Mishal Hasan Abstract Students in Biology find it difficult to understand the concept of tonicity and osmolarity in a real time situation. In this investigation, several concentrations of sucrose were used to determine the osmolarity of a potato. It was found that the concentration of sucrose was close to 3.6 in the potato used showing that it was isotonic. Anything above caused the potato to gain weight showing that it was a hypotonic solution and anything below caused the potato to lose...

Osmosis with Potato Chips

diffusion I will be using potato discs, of the same size and mass, in different concentrations of sugar solution to find out whether the mass of the discs increases or decreases depending on the concentration. I predict that when the sugar solution is 0% the mass will increase as there is less sugar in the water than in the potato. The water will then travel through a partly permeable membrane into the potato from outside. When the sugar solution is 20% the mass of the potato will decrease as there...

Osmosis in Potato Tubers

Osmosis in Potato Tubers Andrew Dickson Background When a plant cell is bathed in a solution of the same concentration (isotonic) as its intracellular environment, its mass and volume remain the same. This is because water enters and leaves the cells at the same rate. There is no net loss or gain of water by osmosis. Samples of cells can be placed in a range of solutions of different concentration. The cells will gain water by osmosis when placed in solutions which are more dilute (hypotonic)...

Osmosis in Potato Chips

GCSE Biology: Osmosis in a Potato Aim To investigate the effect of placing a piece of potato in a given strength of sugar solution. Prediction I predict that, as the solution becomes more concentrated the more the cell will shrink, as the water, of higher concentration inside the potato cells, flows down a concentration gradient into the solution, which has a lower concentration of water molecules. If we say that the percentage change when the potato is placed in the 1M solution is x%. I predict...

America's Great Potato Baron

America’s Great Potato Baron Eric Schlosser’s biography “Fast Food Nation: Why the Fries Taste Good” explains how this invention started out of a simple potato by a man named John R. Simplot who was raised on a farm, un-educated and by his own account, left home at a young age. According to Eric Schlosser’s claim, “John Richard Simplot, America’s great potato baron, whose seemingly inexhaustible energy and willingness to take risk built an empire base on French fries” (Schlosser par. 2). The...
