Adam Jones volunteered to make lemon aid for Betty sue retirement party at work. Adam distributed his home made lemon aid at the retirement party. He noticed several work colleagues adding water to their lemon aid. Explain using the correct terminology in reference to diffusion, as to why his colleagues added water to their lemon aid? Identify the dilute and the solvent.
The lemonade served at retirement party is the hypotonic solution as it has more solutes than water (higher osmolarity).The colleagues adding water to make the hypertonic solution of lemonade to have less solutes into it (lower osmolarity). In reference to the diffusion, the water moves across from higher concentration of water (less solutes) to lower concentration of water (more solutes).Solvents are liquid that dissolve the solutes and dilute is the liquid which is used to dilute the other liquid.Here, Dilute is water and solvent is lemonade.
