Osmosis lab hypothesis question/help!

Recommended Posts

Could you tell me how my hypothesis sounds? Any unnecessary info/too much? Or not specific enough? Etc.. Ty! (PS. my teacher said you could have 2 hypothesis so i made two)

If taro specimens are placed in a corn syrup solution which has a lower concentration of solute outside the taro cells than inside the cells (hypertonic solution), then the masses of the taro specimens will increase because water will move through the selectively permeable membranes of the taro cells from an area of low solute concentration outside the cell to an area of higher solute concentration inside the cell (along the concentration gradient) in a process called osmosis.
