Water molecules move with the help of membrane proteins called aquaporins, which regulate the movement of water in an out of the cell. Because of the dual nature of the membra…ne (hydrophobic and hydrophilic), water doesn't simply diffuse in an out, although a certain percentage can slip in between phospholipids.
I think that yes, becuase osmosis is the diffusion of water across the cell membrane and diffusion is the movement of a substance from a area of its higher concentration t…o an area of its lower concentration so as diffusion is a movement and a osmosis a diffusion, osmosis can move nutrients.
Through semipermeable membarane.
water because it moves
from low to high concentration
i am not sure, but i put false and i put proteins to correct it
Describe how water molecules move through the cell membrane during osmosis?
Osmosis is the diffusion of a solvent (usually water molecules) through a semipermeable membrane from an area of low solute concentration to an area of high solute concentrati…on, or conversely from an area of higher water potential to an area of lower water potential. Water will tend to flow from a hypotonic solution (low concentration of dissolved substances) into a hypertonic solution (higher concentration of dissolved substances). Water will in essence push or thrust (Greek osmos, push,thrust) from a place of low concentration of water to that of a high concentration of water as it requires it. The membrane allows only water and some select substances to pass through.
Some water just "leaks" through the membrane. But most cells have Aquaporins in their membrane to allow the water to pass through more rapidly.
through a semi pemeable membrane. it not always water that moves. solute can laso move through semipremeable membrane
They pass through the selectively permeable cell membrane.
Osmosis is the movement of WATER from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration through a semi-permeable membrane. So water is exchanged during osmosis.
Water moves across the cell membrane through the process of osmosis.
The cell membrane does not move during osmosis. Osmosis is defined as "the net movement of water molecules across a semi-permeable membrane following a concentration gradient.…"
Yes. But only through a permeable or semi permeable membrane EDIT: The cell membrane is not itself permeable to water. However there does exist a type of protein pore called… an aquaporin in the membrane that can allow water to pass through, driven by diffusion or osmosis.
