Presentation Transcript
slide1
Diffusion is the movement of molecules from a high concentration to a low concentration.
  • Many molecules diffuse across cell membranes
slide2
Molecules of oxygen are represented by the small circles on the diagram to the left.
  • Which way will oxygen diffuse in this example?
slide3
The speed of diffusion depends on several factors, including temperature.
  • Do think a higher temperature will cause diffusion to occur more rapidly or more slowly?
  • What is your hypothesis?
slide4
1. Fill a beaker or glass three fourths full with cold tap water.

2. Fill another beaker or glass with very hot water.

3. At the same time lower a tea bag into each of beakers or glasses. Do not mix.

slide5
Describe the rate of diffusion in the two.
  • Was your hypothesis correct?
  • What does this experiment tell you about how temperature affects the rate of diffusion?
slide6
Osmosis is the movement of water (red dots) through a semipermeable membrane to a higher concentration of solutes (blue dots).
  • Water easily moves through cell membranes by osmosis.
slide7
In this example there is more salt in the blood than in body cells..
  • Which way will water move in this example?
slide8
A marine fish has about 1% salt in his body. The ocean water is 3.5%.
  • Will water move into or out of the fish?
slide9
A freshwater fish has about 1% salt in his body. Freshwater is close to 0% salt.
  • Will water move into or out of the fish?
