Confusing osmosis

  1. Mar 1, 2006 #1
    When a closed jar of hot milk is dipped in a cool solution and tasted after some time then why does it taste like water at the bottom.

    I've never experienced this phenomena, but a glass jar is not permeable, so it wouldn't be osmosis. It could simply be that heating the milk forces the milkfat out of solution/suspension.
