Osmosis question urgenttttWatch
Any help is much appreciated!!
Tap water has impurities such as minerals which can decrease water potential wheras distilled water pure and has a water potential of 0. This will affect the rate of osmosis as there would be a smaller water potential gradient with tap water.
also i am doing an evaluation on a potato tuber osmosis experiment with sucrose solution. Why is it important that all of the potato tuber is covered in the sucrose solution?
