A Brief Explanation Of Osmosis
Simply put, osmosis is gradual absorption. In nature it can be identified through examining a tree. Moisture and nutrients are slowly taken in by a tree from the ground through its root system to its outermost leaves. Moisture drawn from the soil passes through cell walls and as it does increases in density until the density on both sides of the cell walls is the same. It continues through with this process as the liquid density changes inside the tree.
