We're being asked to determine what will happen when the left arm of the U-tube has a more concentrated solution that the right arm
Osmosis is the process of a solvent moving from one compartment to another, across a semipermeable membrane, toward higher solute concentration. Osmotic pressure is generated at equilibrium due to the different heights of liquid on either side of the membrane and is equivalent to the pressure needed to equalize the fluid levels across the membrane.
If the pure water in the left arm of the U-tube is replaced by a solution more concentrated than the one in the right arm, what will happen?
