    Temperature increases the movement of molecules so that would increase the rate of osmosis.

    i suppose so,btw osmosis doesn't need energy (active transport need energy).

    u raise the temperature ,means that the kinetic energy of the water molecules increases thus rate of osmosis increases

    osmosis like diffusion needs energy

    if particles are moving faster then the process is accelertaed
