2) In “Chardakov method for water potential measurement” experiment, you find that M solution has not been changed by water loss or absorption by the. Chardakov Technique. Plant Physiology. UNI. Incubating tissue in solution. Pre- incubation. Incubation. Post-incubation. Save for later measurement. Did solution change concentration? Solutes stay the same If water left or entered tissue –Water also entered or left solution –Solution becomes more dilute or.

Alternately, for a more accurate measurement of changes in the solution density, a refractometer can be used. In both techniques, tissue samples are incubated in a series of solutions of known osmotic water potential. Response of drops float, sink, hover when placed in solutions in cardakov potato cores have been incubated.

Investigating osmosis: measuring the water potential of a potato cell

Auth with social network: About project SlidePlayer Terms of Service. If necessary, add more of the appropriate solution to completely submerge the cores but the final volume in each tube must be the same. Measuring Water Potential by the Gravimetric Technique. Weigh the cores to the nearest 0. If you wish to download it, please recommend it to your friends in any social system. This occurs when the apoplast becomes infiltrated with water and solutes. Use a cork borer to prepare at least 27 uniform tissue samples from the potato.


Divide by 10 6 to convert to MPa. Which is more accurate?

Repeat for all solutions. Cut them to the same length with a razor blade ca. Draw the best fit line for your data. This increases the tissue weight and may lead to small errors.

Record your results Table 2 and repeat this procedure for each of the sucrose solutions. Determine the approximate sucrose concentration for which there is no net change in density after tissue incubation i. This method depends on the change in density in a solution that chrdakov after a tissue has been immersed in it. A measure of how much material is packed into a unit volume of the material The fewer.

No change in density, concentration No net water movement Tissue and solution were at the same WP If we can find this solution concentration —We can find the tissue WP. To make this website work, we log user data and share it with methof.

Plant Physiology

Chardakov Method for Determining Water Potential. From the graph, determine the concentration of the sucrose solution in which there was no net weight gain chardakob. It is assumed that solute movement between tissue and solution is negligible.

Osmosis diffusion of water through a selectively permeable membrane Membrane X is permeable to water but not to protein Which side has the highest concentration. Examine the cores as you weigh them.


Chardakov method

Do the cores show various degrees of turgor? Share buttons are a little bit lower.

Which method do you think will be more accurate? The answer will be in Jm -3 which are equivalent to pressure Pa.

Immerse the pipette in the water that previously had tissue sections mehhod it until the tip is approximately at the center of the tube. Cell Transport The movement of molecules can be either passive no energy or active needs energy depending upon the membrane structure and concentration.

Incubate the cores for 1.

Slowly release a drop of the methylene blue solution from the pipette and note whether the drop of the dye sinks, disperses, or floats to the surface in this solution and subjectively estimate whether it does so rapidly or slowly.

Then remove the tissues, gently blot on paper towels and reweigh. Use chardalov following equation to calculate the percent change in weight for each tissue by the following equation: In contrast to the Chardakov method which analyzes changes in solution density after incubation, this technique monitors tissue weight changes.
