Osmosis

Diffusion of water through a semi-permeable membrane from a region of low salt concentration to a region of higher salt concentration to equalise solution strength

Osmosis

Diffusion of substances through a cell wall or other membrane.

osmosis

(Life processes and cells) the movement of water molecules across a semi permeable membrane down a concentration gradient

Osmosis

Osmosis is the spontaneous net movement of solvent molecules through a partially permeable membrane into a region of higher solute concentration, in the direction that tends to equalize the solute concentrations on the two sides. It may also be used to describe a physical process in which any solvent moves across a semipermeable membrane (permeabl...

osmosis

(Gk: osmos=to push) the transport of molecules in a liquid through a semi-permeable membrane into a more concentrated solution, until the concentration of molecules on both sides of the membrane are the same. Osmosis plays a decisive part in controlling the water distribution in living things. In diffusion, molecules travel from a more concentrated...

osmosis

(oz-mo´sis) (os-mo´sis) the diffusion of pure solvent across a membrane in response to a concentration gradient, usually from a solution of lesser to one of greater solute concentration. This process and the factors that influence it are important clinically for maintenance of adequate body fluids and p...

osmosis

(oz-mo;sis) The passage of solvent (water) from a more dilute to a more concentrated solution through a membrane that is more permeable to water than to the solute.

Osmosis

[solitaire] Osmosis (also known as Treasure Trove) is a solitaire game played with a deck of 52 playing cards where the object, like many solitaire games, is to put the cards into foundations, although not in numerical order. Game play consists of four, vertically arranged reserve piles of four cards each (one face-up card on top of three f...

Osmosis

In chemistry, osmosis is the passage of fluid from a less concentrated solution to a more concentrated solution through a semi permeable membrane. A solution exerts osmotic pressure (O.P.) or suction in proportion to concentration but also depending on the kind of dissolved substance. The roots of the higher plants are covered with fine root-hairs,...

osmosis

Osmosis is the flow of a solvent in a system in which two solutions of different concentration are separated by a semipermeable membrane which cannot pass solute molecules. The solvent will flow from the side of lower concentration to that of higher concentration, thus tending to equalize the concentrations. The pressure that must be applied to the...
