Phenomenon Of Osmosis

Phenomenon Of Osmosis: Osmosis is the most important physical process that brings about the movement of water in living systems as well as in their environment. Osmosis is the phenomenon of diffusion of water or solvent from the region of its higher chemical potential to the region of its lower chemical potential when diffusion of solute is prevented by means of a semipermeable membrane. It may also be defined as the net diffusion of water molecules from a dilute solution to the concentrated solution when the two are separated by means of a semi-permeable membrane. If the solution is separated … Continue reading Phenomenon Of Osmosis
