Definition funny of Osmosis:

urbanThe simple diffusion of water (H20) into the plasma membrane. The diffusion of water is determined by the concentration of dissolved substances in the surrounding enviroment.

urbanOsmosis is integral to life. A change in the surrounding enviroment could disrupte the homeostasis of a cell.

urbanThe transfer of something from an area with a high concentration of said thing to an area with a low concetration through a permeable membrane. A study method popular with many pupils and students, usually achieved by falling asleep with ones head directly atop of ones study materials.

urbanStudent #1: Dude, I'm soooo tired and stressed about tomorrow's test, I'm soooo unprepared. Student #2: Dude, relax. You can kill 2 birds with 1 stone, just use osmosis.

urbanThe net diffusion of water molecules across a semi-permeable plasma membrane

urbanImagine a tea bag, the bags walls are porous (holes in them) just like a membrane. The water displaces inside the bag, now although this has a lot to do with environmental pressure (ie. the water) it is mostly to do with diffusion, Osmosis is a form of diffusion*, specifically across a semi - permeable (porous) membrane. * Diffusion is displacement of molecules so that they are equal. E.g. Imagine your friend sprays deodorant/perfume on the far side of the room, it takes a couple of seconds to reach you. It is a highly concentrated cloud at first but then spreads (diffuses) into the air until there are an EQUAL concentration of spray to the air. E.g. five 1 pennies to every three 2 pennies

Wiki information Osmosis:

Reverse osmosis
Field of study

Reverse osmosis is a water purification technology that uses a semipermeable membrane. This membrane technology is not properly a filtration method. In reverse osmosis, an applied pressure is used to overcome osmotic pressure, a colligative property,...

Literature Subject

Osmosis is the spontaneous net movement of solvent molecules through a partially permeable membrane into a region of higher solute concentration, in the direction that tends to equalize the solute concentrations on the two sides. It may also be used...
