A study of diffusion through cell membranes 


Diffusion is one of the methods by which water and some other liquids and gases can pass through the membrane of animal cells and plant cells. Random spontaneous movement of molecules caused by thermal agitation is known to be the cause of diffusion. In process of diffusion, molecules move from a region of higher to one of lower concentration. By diffusion water can move from one cell to the other cell and gradually travel across the plant or animal organ.

What factors affect diffusion through cell membrane?

 Project description:
In this project you will study the factors that may affect diffusion through cell membrane in plant cells. Factors such as temperature, cooking, and concentration of solutes in water may be studied for their effects on diffusion through cell membrane.
