Osmosis Quizzes & Trivia

Osmosis is one of the methods through which solvents. This movement involves the transfer of water from a less concentrated solution to a more concentrated solution through a semipermeable membrane. Most people confuse it with diffusion, which does not involve movement through a membrane. See how much you understood about osmosis in the class by taking the test below before the test.
