Potassium chloride vs. Sodium chloride for osmosis?

Okay, I'm stumped. Ive been searching endlessly to find two pieces of information for an Honors Chemistry research paper. My mentor wants to me explain why we used sodium chloride rather than potassium chloride in our potato tuber osmosis experiment. Ive searched six hours straight without finding anything relevant.

His second question is what the naturally occurring sodium chloride concentration in potato cells are. I can't find any source that will tell me.

Where can I find this information? This paper is due on Friday and I don't see how i'll be able to get this in at due to my current situation.

None of us know about your pototo tuber experiment so we can't help you.
