Osmosis. Osmosis is the diffusion of the movement of water from a region of higher concentration to a region of lower concentration through a cell membrane or other semi-permeable
Diffusion means the slow steady movement of individual molecules
The RO process utilizes a semipermeable membrane with microscopic openings. These openings are large enough for water molecules to pass through, but too small for salt and other large
To understand osmosis, you have to understand diffusion. Diffusion = movement of substances from a high concentration to a low concentration. This is a NATURAL process that happens
