For the osmosis experiment when there is sugar solution in thistle funnel and water in the beaker, water molecules from the thistle funnel can go to the beaker due to gravity since the membrane is also semi permeable. Please explain.

Expert Answer:

The concentration of water molecules in the beaker is more than their concentration inside the thistle funnel. Therefore, water molecules move from the region of higher concentration to lower concentration.
