Why does Osmosis require a Semi-permeable Membrane and Diffusion doesn't?

Asked by Deepak | 11th May, 2021, 12:48: PM

Expert Answer:

Osmosis requires a semipermeable membrane. The concentration of the diffusion substance equalizes to fill the available space. The concentration of the solvent does not become equal on both sides of the membrane. Hydrostatic pressure and turgor pressure do not normally apply to diffusion.
