Diffusion through a membrane e a laboratory activity for the living environment part i diffusion through a membrane molecules are constantly moving they move in straight lines unless they are deflected by other molecules or obstacles in their environment diffusion is the process by which the collisions between. Molecules can move through the cells cytosol by diffusion and some molecules also diffuse across the plasma membrane as shown in the picture above each individual substance in a solution or space has its own concentration gradient independent of the concentration gradients of other materials and will diffuse according to that gradient. The membrane will allow small particles to pass through while large molecules such as starch cannot describe the changes observed in the red onion cells after you added salt solution the cell membrane and its contents pulled away from the cell wall. Diffusion through a membrane part 2 diffusion of water across a membrane osmosis osmosis is a special type of diffusion specifically it is the diffusion of water across a membrane osmosis is a very important process because it enables cells to maintain the proper water balance generally water will diffuse across a. Diffusion through a membrane we used a dialysis tube to simulate a semi permeable cell membrane the dialysis tube was filled with glucose solution and starch solution sealed and rinsed with water it was placed in a beaker with water and iodine and allowed to sit
