Hi summer044 ,

Hydrophobic substances repel water which is different to insolubility - this is a substance which will not dissolve (usually in water).
"Fluid" refers to how all the components of the phospholipid are constantly moving, "mosaic" refers to how the proteins are all scattered and different sizes.
Hydrostatic pressure forces fuid out of the capillary. I am unsure about 'osmotic' pressure, but oncotic pressure draws the fluid back in. The two might be the same?
Plasmolysis is when a (plant) cell loses water to its hypotonic surroundings.

My exam board for A level biology is OCR btw. What about you?

Hope this helps
