This lab allows you to learn about two forms of passive transport: diffusion and osmosis. You will compare and contrast similarities and differences in the processes of diffusion and osmosis. Use a colorimetric test to demonstrate the movement of a solute across a semi-permeable membrane. Set up an environment likely to facilitate osmosis and gather data to determine whether or not osmosis may have occurred. Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups.
