AP Biology

We just did the Osmosis and Diffusion lab in Biology. My teacher wants us to use water potential (and its equation) to explain the results....how do I use the water potential equation?

  1. Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "water potential equation" to get these possible sources:

    There are more sites available. In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
