JSC Science Note2 3rd Chapter Diffusion, and Osmosis. Osmosis is the spontaneous net movement of solvent molecules through a semi-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 to describe a physical process in which any solvent moves across a semipermeable membrane (permeable to the solvent, but not the solute) separating two solutions of different concentrations. Osmosis can be made to do work.
Osmotic pressure is defined as the external pressure required to be applied so that there is no net movement of a solvent across the membrane. Osmotic pressure is a colligative property, meaning that the osmotic pressure depends on the molar concentration of the solute but not on its identity.
JSC Science Note2 3rd Chapter Diffusion, and Osmosis
Osmosis is a vital process in biological systems, as biological membranes are semipermeable. In general, these membranes are impermeable to large and polar molecules, such as ions, proteins, and polysaccharides, while being permeable to non-polar or hydrophobic molecules like lipids as well as to small molecules like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and nitric oxide. Permeability depends on solubility, charge, or chemistry, as well as solute size.
Water molecules travel through the plasma membrane, tonoplast membrane (vacuole) or protoplast by diffusing across the phospholipid bilayer via aquaporins (small transmembrane proteins similar to those responsible for facilitated diffusion and ion channels). Osmosis provides the primary means by which water is transported into and out of cells. The turgor pressure of a cell is largely maintained by osmosis across the cell membrane between the cell interior and its relatively hypotonic environment.
The textbook is written in light of the revised curriculum ahead of the twenty-first-century commitment and conviction. Therefore, any constructive and reasonable suggestions will be seriously considered for further enrichment of the textbook. The book was written in a short span of the vast amount of textbook preparation. As a result, some mistakes can go from In subsequent versions, the effort to make textbooks more beautiful, decorated and refined will be there. The spelling is followed by the Bangla Academy, which is sponsored by Bangla Academy.
Thanking those who sincerely gave me intellectuals and poems for writing, editing, painting, sampling and publishing textbook. Hopefully, the textbook will ensure the student’s delightful reading and achieve the expected skills.
teachingbd24.com is such a website where you will get all kinds of necessary information regarding educational notes, suggestions and question patterns of schools, colleges, and madrasas. Particularly, you will get here special notes of physics that will be immensely useful to both students and teachers. The builder of the website is Mr. Md. Shah Jamal who has been serving for 33 years as an Assistant Professor of Physics at BAF Shaheen College Dhaka. He expects that this website will meet up all the needs of Bengali version learners /students. He has requested concerned students and teachers to spread this website home and abroad.
