what is osmosis and diffusion

Asked by abhishek koery | 9th Aug, 2014, 12:38: PM

Expert Answer:

Osmosis: Osmosis is the diffusion of water molecules across a semi-permeable membrane from a more dilute solution (with a lower solute concentration) to a less dilute solution (with a higher solute concentration).

Diffusion: Diffusion is the movement of a substance from its higher concentration to its lower concentration when the two are in direct contact.
