Reverse osmosis occurs when concentrated water is pushed through a membrane to produce fresh water on the other side, according to chemistry section. Reverse osmosis allows water molecules to pass from concentr... More »

Bottled water made with the reverse osmosis process is passed through a system capable of removing not only particulates, but also dissolved salts and other impurities too large for filtering. As of 2014, two brands that... More »

The pH level of most reverse-osmosis-treated water ranges from 6.5 to 8.0. The exact pH level depends on the age and condition of the filtering system and the composition of the source water. Water with a pH below 6.5 ar... More »

Animals and plants that live in saltwater biomes feature adaptations designed to prevent osmosis from equalizing the salt concentration throughout their bodies while remaining capable of absorbing oxygen from the water. ... More »

During osmosis, water molecules move from an area where there are fewer molecules of a solute to the area where there are more of them. The former solution is called hypotonic and the latter is called hypertonic. More »

Potatoes lose weight when placed in high concentration sucrose solutions because they lose water through osmosis. Osmosis is the process where solvent molecules pass through semi-permeable membranes to equalize the solut... More »
