What is an osmosis?

Osmosis is the random movement of water molecules through a semi-permeable membrane from a region of high water potential to a region of low water potential.

How does osmosis is differ from reverse osmosis?

1) Osmosis refers to the flow of water along the water potential through a selectively/differentially permeable membrane/tubing due to a difference in water potential. Reverse ( Full Answer )

What is osmosis on?

I am not sure what you mean.... but if you are asking what is used on osmosis, it is only water molecules. Osmosis is the diffusion of water molecules from a high concentratio ( Full Answer )

When osmosis do not occur?

Osmosis across the cell membrane doesn't occur when the concentration gradients, and therefore the water potential inside and outside of the cell are the same

Can osmosis be harmful?

Yes it could! Since animal cells are not protected by a cell wall, they run a risk of bursting. Hence, animals which live in freshwater have a much greater need of mechanisms ( Full Answer )

How does osmosis differ from osmosis?

it doesn't. you may have asked the question wrong! however, osmosis is slightly like diffusion, it involves water molecules. Osmosis consists of water moving from a high ( Full Answer )
