Homeostasis - Osmoregulation

Submitted by hsilvest on 25 February 2015

The experiment from this website has been tried and works well: http://www.nuffieldfoundation.org/practical-biology/investigating-effect...

The experiment involves identifying how much Ribena needs to be diluted before it becomes isotonic to potato cubes.

Students then do their own investigation with a fluid of their own choice (i.e., lemonade, orange juice, etc.) to determine the correct dilution to give to a dehydrated child (i.e., with the same solute concentration as the potatoes).
