Can you explain how the phospholipid bilayer stops the diffusion of water soluble compounds ?
Water potential is measured in kPA - a unit of pressure. So water moves to a lower water potential.
Can you define water potential ?

the cellulose cell wall is permeable - but resists the expansion of the cytoplasm, therefore preventing osmotic lysis
Diffusion is moving from where there are lots to where there are few. Moving the opposite way needs energy
