Hello class! I'm Mrs. Jones, today I'm going to teach you about Osmosis and Diffusion.
diffusion: the spreading of something more widely.
Osmosis: a process by which molecules of a solvent tend to pass through a semipermeable membrane from a less concentrated solution into a more concentrated one, thus equalizing the concentrations on each side of the membrane.
What is the difference between Osmosis and Diffusion?
Good question. Diffusion refers to the movement of any chemical from one place to another, whereas osmosis exclusively refers to the movement of water across a membrane. Also diffusion is the movement of molecules
Why is osmosis important in functioning of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems?
Well...the carbon dioxide and oxygen would not be able to defuse into in the blood and capillaries.
And that class is everything you need to know about Osmosis and Diffusion. Thanks for tuning in! I'm Mrs. Janice and I hope you learned something today!
