suggest a reason for the failure of some of the molecules to diffuse through the semipermeable membrane.

  • biology -

    because of the molecular weight of the molecules and structure of the ion channels and carriers or vectors and one more thing is all the structures of channels and carriers structure is genetically determined.

  • biology -

    due to its high mol.weight of the molecules
