While I am not asking the question here, a recent question concerning osmosis at the Bio SE caught my interest. In a nutshell that question was, given isotonic solutions of sugar inside and outside an ...
This question was posed a couple years ago but not answered adequately. You can view the older thread here. The cellulose membrane commonly used in high school and university labs is widely available ...
How can osmosis be used to measure molecular weight of macromolecules ? Is it applied practically ?
