Problem

Consider the following:

What would happen to the level of liquid in the two arms if the semipermeable membrane separating the two liquids were permeable to H2O (the solvent) only?

Solution

Recall that osmosis is the diffusion of fluids through a semipermeable membrane. A semipermeable membrane will not allow some solutes to pass.
