Question

In osmosis, water molecules pass through a semi-permeable membrane. What is a semi-permeable membrane? What determines the direction of passage of water through such a membrane?


Solution

A semi-permeable membrane can be described as a membrane that allows the passage of only certain types of molecules through diffusion. The direction of passage of water through a semi-permeable membrane depends on the concentration of water molecules across the semi-permeable membrane.
