Help with my course work
3 strips of potatoes of equal sizes are put into water, weak sucrose and strong sucrose solution.
As far as prediction goes I know happens. But what is the aim of this experiment?
I came up with this aim- To illustrate movement of water molecules in and out of plant cell through selectively permeable membrane.
Am I correct?
