  • Osmosis Definitions
    • Concentrated Solution
      • solution containing large amount of solute
      • Opposite of dilute
    • Solute Concentration
      • Amount of solute dissolved in a solvent in a solution
      • High solute concentration means low water potential
    • Dilute Solution
      • Solution containing small amount of solute, compared to solvent
        • Solvent: Greatest part of the solution in which the solute is dissolved in.
        • Solute: Substance dissolved in the solution.
      • Opposite of concentrated
    • Water Potential
      • Pure water has a water potential of 0, anything not pure is a negative number
      • represented by
      • The tendency of water to move from one area to another.
        • A low water potential has more solute molecules and less water molecules.
        • A high water potential has more water molecules and less solute molecules.
    • Water Concentration
      • The amount of ingredients or parts in relation to the other ingredients or parts.
      • E.g. salt in salt water
    • Hypotonic
      • Water potential outside the cell is higher than inside so water moves out
    • Hypertonic
      • Water potential outside the cell is lower than inside so water moves out of the cell
  • Amount of solute dissolved in a solvent in a solution
