In a lab I did, I put slices of potatos in varying amounts of sugar concentrations and one control group which contained only water and no sugar.

What is suppose to happen? My data tells me that the potato weighed heavier after a day of being submerged. Is that correct? In relation to water and sugar, what is the concentration of a potato?

Also, how does the concentration of the sugar affect the potato?

  • Chemistry -

    If the potato gained mass,that means water from the sugar solution diffused into the potato.

    If you had placed them in a more concentrated sugar solution, the potatoes would have lost water.

    We are not in competition with Yahoo. Please don't post questions all over the web, it just wastes a lot of volunteers time.


  • Chemistry -

    Take two bulb in one of them put milk in which sugar is dissolved and in another bowl put simple water of same quantity put both of them ice box which one will be freezes first and why?
