Give reason-Sprinkling salt on cucumber releases water from it after sometime


Answered by HaRdIk11111111111
The Best answer for your question is.
If we sprinkle salt on cucumber slices, it releases water after some time due to the process of osmosis. Osmosis is a process where solute or salt from higher concentration moves towards lower concentration through a semi-permeable membrane. Here in this case, salt concentration is more outside on the cucumber slices. The individual cell membrane of cells present in cucumber slices act as semi-permeable membrane. Inside the cucumber cells there is less concentration of salt or solute and more concentration of water. Therefore, the salt from outside goes inside individual cells and the water comes out as it also travels from higher concentration to outside lower concentration through semi-permeable membrane.
