Ok, so here's the thing. You still have a least one day (Assuming assingment is due on Monday) to work on your assignment. Suck it up, read what you need to, and you can still do well. Do not get into the habit of blowing off work, it only sets a pattern.
Sure you will feel a moment of relief, but you will still have that nagging feeling in the back of your mind, I think they call it guilt.
Do yourself a favor, forget about hanging with the friends, hit the books, and techno yucky stuff on the internet, and get yourself a good grade. You will feel good about yourself if you do. There is always time to hang out and chat with friends.
If I still have failed to convince you, then I do not see you passing your bio course as it only gets more difficult if you do not understand basic concepts.

Ok, I am finished being a nag. I think that is Canalons job :)

i know but i don't know what you're trying to say

the benedict reagent thing just determines the presence of glucose (which is in molasses) so i have no idea how thats useful

And i realize there's a concentration difference, being higher outside the cell causing a hypertonic solution ?? which means the molasses would attempt to move out of the tubing causing it to shrink?

Mith is right. Here is the deal. You have a bag with 5% solution placed in a beaker with 10% solution. That means the bag has a water concentration of 95% while the beakers water concentration is 90%. In osmosis water moves to equalize the concentrations, so in this case water from the bag will move out into the beaker in order balance the concentration.

Does that make sense?

so what i said above is true except for when i said molasses i should've said water?

it makes sense, yes, but is a solution always with water? because i dont know where the 'water' came from :confused:

A solution is not always water, but we're talking about sugar in solution, so it's most probably water. Anyways, there should be water movement.

Be sure to let us know how you do in class.

And Canalon, I was just joking about the nag part.
