Diffusion is the process in which there is movement of a substance to an area of lower concentration of that substance to an area of lower concentration whereas osmosis is the diffusion of molecules through a semipermeable membrane from a place of higher concentration to a place of lower concentration until the concentration on both sides is equal.
