Osmosis

Osmosis is a simulation of the classic potato experiment. It comes with animations to show what happens at both the cellular and molecular level.

YouÂ’ll use it to:

  • Describe what happens in the experiment and explain why.
  • Investigate what happens when you change the concentration of the solution surrounding the potato and explain why.
  • Show how cells become turgid or plasmolysed.
  • Practise investigations with less hassle and no washing up.
  • Compare what happens in the real experiment to the simulation.
