Diffusion, Osmosis and Cell Membranes
Students will explore some of the properties and processes of the cell membrane including permeability, passive transport, equilibrium, diffusion, osmosis, cell tonicity and rates of diffusion. Students will perform a number of laboratory activities intended to lead them to a thorough understanding of the importance of a cell membrane and the physical processes of diffusion and osmosis.
