    Osmosis is a type of passive transport in which water molecules move from an area of high water concentration (low solute concentration) to an area of low water concentration (high solute concentration) across a selectively permeable membrane. Diffusion, on the other hand, is the movement of particles from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration until equilibrium is reached. Dialysis is the separation of large molecules or colloidal particles from smaller molecules or ions through a semipermeable membrane. In osmosis, only water molecules move, while in diffusion and dialysis, all types of molecules can move. Additionally, osmosis involves the movement of water across a selectively permeable membrane, while diffusion and dialysis may occur with or without a membrane.
