Scientific Method

A recent news article by Drs. Glazier and Ko from UCLA Health noted that a fecal transplant has been used to cure C diff.  With further reading, I learned that the process replaces diseased microbes with those from a healthy person.   This scientific method has been successful.  There are no known medicines for C diff.   ….  Read More

Welcome to Dr Osmosis

Hello, I am happy to be back.   And I would like to hear from you if you are reading this blog site.  Please leave a note in the comment section.     My blog site was attacked several months ago.   It is now more secure, and I will continue to review published findings about osmosis and osmosis ….  Read More

Osmosis: The Molecular Theory

Thank you for signing in to DrOsmosis.com.   We will delay public posts for awhile as we attempt to resolve the large number of attacks to our blog page.  This is not the first time I have developed Ideas that challenge the status quo.   I had an idea about the attacks I would get as I ….  Read More

Forward Osmosis

Osmosis is a natural process.   In its simplest form, water flows through the membrane into a solution.  It is important for plant and animal life.   Nutrients must enter cells and waste products leave.    Trees must bring nutrients from the soil to the upper most leaves (See: Maple Tree Details at DrOsmosis.com).    Experimenters found that a ….  Read More

OSMOSIS

One must fully understand the history to appreciate today’s textbook thermodynamic theory of osmosis.

Osmosis Experiment

What is difference between Osmosis and Diffusion?

 Osmosis is the movement of a solvent across a semi permeable membrane into a more dilute solution of the solvent.   The semi permeable membrane prevents the solute from passing through the membrane.    The original osmosis experiment used water and wine. Later experimenters found the same behavior using a sugar water solution instead of wine.    Various ….  Read More

An Engineers View of Osmosis

Engineers do not study osmosis.. It was a chain of circumstances that led this engineer to study the theory and history of osmosis. We backed into offering a new theory and explanation for osmosis.

Covid-19

Covid-19 pandemic has opened my eyes to the incredible complexity of the human body and to the many scientists and engineers that have improved our understanding and are working on developing solutions. We still have a long way to go

Cell Transport Models

We have looked at vesicles, cell behavior, and biological osmosis.    Basically, living organisms are composed of single or multiple cells.    From the “Fundamentals of Medical Physiology”,   we know that the cell is the smallest unit of life and  cells are the fundamental building block of all living things.    Cells take in nutrients to generate energy ….  Read More

Honey

Honey is a natural topic for Valentine’s Day.   Here, we are discussing natural honey.  A sweet viscous liquid produced by honeybees.     A hive of honeybees can produce 100 pounds of extra honey annually and contains more than 60,000 bees.  Each bee produces a partial spoonful of honey during its three to 5-week lifetime.  There are ….  Read More
