Osmosis Lab

I.             Title

II.            Purpose

III.          Hypothesis

IV.          Materials

V.            Procedure

VI.          Observations (Chart) , also add qualitative data (eyes)

VII.         Results (summary of observations)

VIII.       Analysis: (interpret your data)

IX.          Conclusion (restate hypothesis, was it right or not, why/why not, what did you learn?)


Procedure (Do not plagiarize for your lab report)

Create a table to record your data for the Section V. of your lab report.  DON’T FORGET A TITLE!


Original Mass of Grape

Predicted Mass

Actual Mass

Sugar Solution

Salt Solution 

Tap Water
  1. Label one of the cups at your station “Sugar Solution”, another “Salt Solution” and the last cup “Tap Water”.  Also, label each of your cups with your group symbol.  Fill each of your cups 2/3rd full with the corresponding fluid from the large containers provided by your teacher. 

  1. Obtain 3 grapes.  Using the balance, find the mass of the first grape.  Record the mass on your table in the column labeled “Original Mass of Grape” for the “Sugar Solution”.  Place the grape in the cup labeled “Sugar Solution”.  Repeat step 3 for the remaining two grapes.

  1. Predict whether the mass of each grape will increase (+) or decrease (-) over time.  Explain your answers in the purpose section of your lab report.

  1. After an overnight soak, remove the grape from the “Sugar Solution”.  Gently blot it dry and weigh.  Record the mass on your table.  Repeat for the remaining two grapes.

  1. Clean up your station before leaving.

Diffusion Lab!

Diffusion lab

Problem: Does heat affect the rate of diffusion?

Hypothesis: Answer the problem!!!

Materials: Just list them!!


1)     Take 2 petrie dishes and fill one with 1cm of cold water and the other with 1 cm of warm water.

2)    Drop one drop of dye in the center of each dish, when the water is still, at the same time

3)     Draw a picture of what it looks like immediately after the dye is dropped and one minute after

Observations:   Include 4 diagrams with qualitative and quantitative data


1)     Did the dye move in any particular direction?

2)    In which dish did the dye move fastest?

3)     What effect does increasing the temperature have on the rate of diffusion?  Explain why the dye spread out.

4)    Using the idea from the lab, explain how carbon dioxide would move out of a cell.

Lab Report

Lab Report (using scientific method)



Question:  Write the purpose of the lab (i.e. what you are trying to discover by conducting an experiment)

Hypothesis:  This is an educated guess of what the results will be.

Materials:  List the materials that you used for the experiment.

Procedure:  Write out the steps you took to complete the lab in sequential order

Observations: This is where you record the data you observed during the experiment (qualitative and quantitative)



Quantitative (FOV, Magnification, Size of organizm)

qualitative (physical description, how it moved, colour, texture, etc)
Results:  This is a summary of your observations

Analysis:  Explain, examine and interpret your results.  Often, analysis questions are included with the lab for you to answer.

Conclusion:  Summarize the experiment in a few sentences. Is your prediction correct? Why or why not? What did you learn ?

Include labelled drawings on a separate sheet attached to your lab

Below you will find pictures of some unicellular organisms.  The first 4 are types of bacteria and blue-green algae.  The last 4 are all protists.
