Reverse osmosis is a hot topic in the water treatment industry. reverse osmosis, is the process of osmosis backwards. osmosis is the passage of water through a protein membrane (like our skin, or the inside of a plant cell) to equalize the concentration of particles dissolved in the water. the protein membrane allows water to pass through, but molecules larger than water (things like minerals, salts, and bacteria) cannot. water flows back and forth until the concentration is equal on both sides of the membrane, and an equilibrium is formed.
let's apply this knowledge to water purification. we want to drink water from a lake or stream, but it contains contaminants like salt, minerals, and bacteria, that make it undrinkable. by applying pressure to water as it passes through a membrane, the water can be forced to move away from the membrane rather than attempting to form an equilibrium like normal. this motion is where the "reverse" comes from.
