Osmosis Notes

If you are stranded on a raft in the ocean, is it better to drink the salt water or no water at all?


Osmosis notes

The diffusion of water through a selectively permeable membrane.

Only water moves during osmosis. Nothing else.

Water continues to move until equilibrium is reached on both sides of the membrane.


Placing a cell in an isotonic solution

Placing a cell in an isotonic solution:

Isotonic means Same Strength

Concentration of particles is the same inside and outside of the cell.

Equilibrium exists but nothing happens to the appearance of the cell.


Placing a cell in a hypertonic solution

Placing a cell in a Hypertonic solution

Hypertonic means Above Strength

Solution has a higher particle concentration than the cell.

Water moves out to try to balance.

Cell Shrivels!!!


Placing a cell in a hypotonic solution

Placing a cell in a Hypotonic Solution.

Hypotonic means below strength

Solution has a lower solute concentration than the cell.

Water moves into the cell to try to balance.

The cell plumps up!!!
