Storyboard Text

  • What are Diffusion and Osmosis?
  • diffusion: the net passive movement of particles from a region of higher to lower concentration osmosis: a process by which molecules of a solvent pass through a semipermeable membrane from a less concentrated to a more concentrated solution
  • Hey guys! Do you know what the definitions of diffusion and osmosis are?
  • Today's Lesson: DIFFUSION and OSMOSIS
  • What is the process?
  • Can you tell me what the processes are for diffusion and osmosis?
  • The Processes of Diffusion and Osmosis: Diffusion: the movement of particles continues until the substance is distributed evenly, which is needed for many cellular processes Osmosis: the movement into different concentrations tends to equalize both sides, which is very important to the cell's function
  • What if they didn't work?
  • If diffusion didn't work, we would not be able to smell, as a result of the molecules not spreading out into the air from things like food or air fresheners.
  • Warm-Up: What if diffusion and osmosis didn't work?
  • Do you know what would happen if diffusion and osmosis didn't work?
  • Well, if osmosis didn't work, we would not be able to receive oxygen to our bodies and in that case we would not live.
