Question regarding water potential

  1. May 23, 2005 #1
    today in bio lab we measured the change in weight of potatoes when it was placed in diff molal sucrose conc for 1 hour.

    However, there was a question on the lab that i didnt understand

    what condition must be met for the size and shape of potato pieces to have no influence upon the results of this effort to measure water potential for this tissue? (think about the required amt of incubation time)

    wat the heck does the size and shape have anything to do with potato pieces having no influnece on water potential?
