Critically discuss Fick’s law. How might this law be applied to the osmosis? Discuss how osmosis is special case of diffusion.
What role does solute concentration play in the osmosis? How does water’s chemical potential affect osmosis? What role do water properties play in the diffusion?
Make a distinction between osmotic pressure and potential. What organelle is related to the osmotic potential?
What role do aquaporins play in the cell membrane permeability? What controls gating of aquaporins?
