Osmosis is the movement of a solvent through a semi-permeable membrane from a region of low solute concentration to a region of high solute concentration.
Most concentrated solution → highest level on the left arm.
Four U tubes each have distilled water in the right arm, a solution in the left arm, and a semipermeable membrane between the arms.
(a) If the solute is KCl, which solution is most concentrated?
