Learn about the 4 colligative properties!
The Four Properties!
Property of the Month: Osmotic Pressure!
Equation: π = iMRT
Important Vocabulary: semipermeable membrane- a type of biological or synthetic membrane that will allow only certain molecules or ions to pass through it.
the process of Osmosis- the net movement of solvent molecules through a membrane into a region of higher solute concentration, in the direction that tends to equalize the solute concentrations on the two sides.
Cold Hard Facts: Osmotic pressure could not happen without diffusion. Raising the hydrostatic pressure on the solution side of the membrane can stop osmosis.
