Diffusion Across a Semipermeable Membrane

For Students 9th - 12th Standards
Semipermeable membranes allow water to go through—but not larger molecules. The simulation encourages pupils to adjust the membrane pore size to understand how this works. It also provides a way to trace the movement of a single molecule.
