In lab, you use a special balloon that is permeable to water but not sucrose to make an "artificial cell." The balloon is filled with a solution of 20% sucrose and 80% water and is immersed in a beaker containing a solution of 40% sucrose and 60% water. Which of the following will occur?

Answer Water will leave the balloon.

This is an applied example of the previous question. There will be a net movement of water from the region of higher water concentration to the region of lower water concentration.
