What is osmosis?

Osmosis is a special kind of diffusion that involves liquids. Abbe Nollel coined the term ‘Osmosis’. Osmosis refers to:

a) The movement of solvent.

b) From an area of low solute concentration. c) To an area of high solute concentration.

d) Through a semi-permeable membrane (SPM).

A semi-permeable membrane is a membrane that only allows certain substances to pass through. The plasma or cell membrane is a semi-permeable membrane. When the temperature is high, the plasma membrane becomes more permeable.
