A Simple Student Laboratory on Osmotic Flow, Osmotic Pressure, and the Reflection Coefficient.
Feher, Joseph J.; Ford, George D.
Advances in Physiology Education, v13 n1 pS10-S20 Jun 1995
Describes a laboratory exercise containing a practical series of experiments that novice students can perform within two hours. The exercise provides a confirmation of van't Hoff's law while placing more emphasis on osmotic flow than pressure. Students can determine parameters such as the reflection coefficient which stress the interaction of both solute and membranes in generating the osmotic phenomenon. (Author/PVD)
