What would you like to do?

Is water always able to diffuse through a Cell's selectively permeable membrane?

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

Yes, due to its very small molecular size - unless of course it is frozen.

What is the diffusion of water molecules through a selectively permeable membrane?

It's called osmosis.   A selectively permeable membrane will only allow certain molecules  to pass trough. To illustrate: If you have a high concentration of  sugar mole

Water molecules diffuse through a selectively permeable membrane?

Water diffuses by facilitated diffusion, passing through water permeable protein channels embedded in the cell membrane. Water molecules can not pass through the lipid bilayer
