Reverse Osmosis Principle
|This is the process by which the molecules of a solvent pass through the semi-permeable membrane from a region of lower concentration to a higher concentration.||This is the process by which the molecules of a solvent pass through the semi-permeable from a region of higher concentration to lower concentration when pressure greater than the osmotic pressure is applied.|
|It is a natural process.||It is an artificial process.|
|Occurs along the potential gradient.||Occurs against the potential gradient.|
|This is observed during the opening of stomata and absorption of water from the soil by the roots.||This is used in water purification systems.|
