Transport Through Neutral Membranes
The last chapter discussed some of the general features of solute movement in an infinite medium. Solute particles can be carried along with the flowing solution or they can diffuse. This chapter considers the movement of solute and solvent through membranes, ignoring any electrical forces on the particles.
