osmosis

Definitions

osmosis rate
(Noun) the diffusion of water from an area of lower concentration to an area of higher concentration.
Usage: Osmosis can be observed in cells that are placed in a hypotonic solution.

osmosis rate
(Noun) the movement of water molecules from an area of high water potential to an area of low water potential through selectively permeable membrane.
This process constantly occurs and aims to have equal water potentials either side of the cell.
It can also be interpreted via solute concentrations.
Osmosis is the movement of water from an area of low solute concentration to an area of high solute concentration through a selectively permeable membrane. The process continues until the solute concentrations are equal either side of the cell.
osmosis rate
(Noun) the movement of water from a lower concentration of substance to a higher concentration of substance across a semi-permeable membrane. It stops when the concentration of substance is equal on the both sides of the membrane.
