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

Transport through a Membrane

Several mechanisms have been proposed to explain flow through a membrane.   These are: Bulk pressure driven flow      The entire flow field is forced through a membrane (filter).   Larger particles are trapped in the filter.   The cleaned fluid is normally reused in the system. Trapped impurities remain in the filter.  Special filters can remove submicroscopic particles.   ….  Read More
