Our science class did a lab about osmosis, where we left a gummy bear in solutions of salt and sugar, as well as tap water. When we came back, we were all surprised to see that our gummy bears in sugar water were nearly twice the size of any of the others.

This couldn’t possibly be some sort of anomaly since it happened with every group.

Our class has been searching online for reports that reproduce this result. We haven’t found one. My question is, why does this happen?

  • $\begingroup$ Hint: Solute (in this case sugar from the gummy bear) diffuses from region of high concentration to low concentration. $\endgroup$ – Anurag B. Jun 4 '18 at 11:22
