1.3 Osmosis and Diffusion


Diffusion osmosis and the cell membrane

Diffusion, Osmosis, and the Cell Membrane

  • Diffusion – is the movement of particles from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration (Ex. Perfume)

  • Concentration – the amount of a substance in a given space

  • Osmosis – is the movement of water from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration (Ex. Limp carrot in water) through a selectively permeable membrane


Movement across a membrane

Movement across a Membrane

  • Cell membrane is selectively permeable = only some things in

  • Cell membrane can be compared to a coffee filter

  • Diffusion is one way that particles move across the cell membrane

  • If one side of the membrane has a higher concentration of particles they will move across the membrane until both sides have the same amount = this means an equilibrium is reached

  • Particles will continue to move back and forth but there will be the same number on either side

  • Example: oxygen in our cells lungs to the blood cells


Reverse osmosis

Reverse Osmosis

  • Reverse Osmosis – movement of water from a high to a low concentration – backwards – this requires pressure to push the molecules

  • Used for filtering water, purifying maple syrup and juice, and treating sewage
