Lets say there is a membrane, which has a channel for the solute(eg sodium) and another channel for water
Now if I have a hypertonic (more sodium) solution in side A, and hypotonic (less sodium) solution in side B. Which way would water go?
* I'm very confused here diffusion and osmosis both occuring.
Does water follow sodium or sodium follows water?
