If you compare the egg to a cell, what did you learn about how water moves into or out of a cell? What about salt water? Why does the water move in the direction it does?

    If we compare a cell with an egg there is a major difference between the outer membrane

    in case of cell they are bounded by semi permeable membrane

    The semi permeable membrane is a selectively permeable membrane which allows the movement of only solvent molecule and not solute molecules through it.

    So water can move into or out of the cell through cell membrane by a special physical process known as osmosis.

    the water will move from a low concentration gradient to high concentration gradient.
