I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “learn by osmosis,” but I bet most people don’t know what the word “osmosis” actually means. Ever seen the word “osmosis” in this context?
Wikipedia defines osmosis as follows:
Osmosis is the net movement of solvent molecules through a partially permeable membrane into a region of higher solute concentration, in order to equalize the solute concentrations on the two sides.
Yeah, I didn’t follow all that either. Essentially, osmosis is the diffusion of water… and a reverse osmosis filter removes chlorine, heavy metals, such as barium, cadmium, chromium, lead and mercury from water for drinking.
So boom. No learning going on here – except the correct* definition of “osmosis.”
