If a solution on one side of a membrane has .05M sucrose and .05M gluclose and the other side has .05M sucrose and .1M gluclose will dialysis occur? Will osmosis occure? Which direction?
Since side a and b both have the same amount of sucrose, dialysis will not happen for sucrose.
Since side a has less glucose than side b, dialysis will happen for glucose. The glucose will move through the membrance from side b ( higher amount ) to side a ( lower amount ).
Dialysis: higher amount -----> lower amount
Side a has less total solute and thus more water than side b. So osmosis will occur with water moving from side b to a.
Osmosis: more water -----> less water
