User: explain the process of osmosis in animals

Weegy: Osmosis is the diffusion of water through a semi-permeable membrane, from a solution of low solute concentration (high water potential) to a solution with high solute concentration (low water potential), up a solute concentration gradient. [ [ The simplest definition is that it is diffusion of water across a semipermeable membrane.It is a physical process in which a solvent moves, without input of energy, across a semi-permeable membrane (permeable to the solvent, but not the solute) separating two solutions of different concentrations. ] ]

In animals, osmosis involves the movement of water across cell membranes from an area of lower solute concentration to an area of higher solute concentration, helping maintain proper hydration and cellular function.
