Question

In experiment showing thistle funnel which contains conc. sugar solution demonstrating osmosis, how does the sugar solution level rises even if the solution is concentrated?


Solution

Water concentration in beaker is 100% while in the sugar solution it is less than this, and, therefore, the water from the region of higher concentration moves towards the region of lower concentration. The movement is through a semipermeable membrane and so the experiment shows the phenomenon of osmosis.

Thus because of Osmosis the level changes
