Osmosis Saves The Day For The Dried Up Celery

We learned that osmosis is the diffusion of water from a region of high concentration to a region of low concentration.  Initially, the celery was very limp.  Most of the water had evaporated from the cells.

After we placed the celery in a beaker of water, osmosis began to help the celery regain its original shape.  This took place over only two hours!  Cool!
