Example text

You experience this when you stand in a draught after a shower. And since a great deal of heat is lost with the evaporation of a small amount of water, cooling by evaporation of water is economical on water, too. 40 CHEMISTRY OF LIFE Heat energy and freezing The amount of heat energy that must be removed from water to turn it to ice is very great, as is that needed to melt ice. This amount of energy is the latent heat of fusion, and is very high for water. As a result, both the contents of cells and the water in the environment are always slow to freeze in extreme cold.

2 Ice forms on the surface of water The density of ice Most liquids contract on cooling, reaching maximum density at their freezing point. Water is unusual in reaching its maximum density at 4 °C. So as water freezes, the ice formed is less dense than the cold water around it. 2). The floating layer of ice insulates the water below. The consequence is that lakes rarely freeze solid; aquatic life can generally survive a freeze-up. ice forms at surface (because ice is less dense than water) ice acts as an insulator (reducing the chance of water freezing below) Because ice freezes from below, it is difficult to judge its depth.

So, in a very concentrated solution, very many more of the water molecules have restricted movement than in a dilute solution. In pure water, all of the water molecules are free to move about randomly, and do so. When a solution is separated from water (or a more dilute solution) by a membrane permeable to water molecules (such as the plasma membrane), water molecules free to move tend to diffuse, while dissolved molecules and their group of water molecules move very much less, if at all. So there is a net flow of water, from a more dilute solution into a more concentrated solution, across the membrane.
