Reverse osmosis occurs when the water is crossed the membrane layer against the focus slope, from lower focus to greater focus. To highlight, visualize a semipermeable membrane with fresh water on one side and also a concentrated liquid solution on the other side. If normal osmosis occurs, the fresh water will certainly cross the membrane layer to water down the focused service. In reverse osmosis, pressure is put in on the side with the focused solution to compel the water particles throughout the membrane to the fresh water side. Reverse osmosis is the process of compeling a solvent from a region of high solute concentration via a membrane to a region of reduced solute focus by applying a stress in excess of the osmotic pressure. This is the reverse of the regular osmosis process, which is the natural movement of solvent from an area of reduced solute concentration, through a membrane layer, to a location of high solute concentration when no outside stress is used.
