Osmosis is the net movement of water molecules across a partially permeable membrane from a region of higher concentration to a region of lower concentration

  • Only tiny molecules can do osmosis, such as water molecules. Bigger molecules (such as sucrose) can't
  • The water molecules are moving around randomly and can actually pass through the membrane both ways

Water moves in and out of cells by osmosis
