Osmolarity In Plant Cells Essays and Term Papers

  • Osmoregulation

    September 27, 2010 Abstract: When a plant is placed in a hypertonic solution, the environment is more concentrated then that of the cell’s internal environment, the cell will lose water, shrinking and becoming flaccid a process called plasmolysis. When a plant is placed in a hypotonic solution, the...

    al., 2014). The role of osmosis to the cell is to transport water across cell membranes, balancing the water between the cell and its environment optimizing the cells ability to survive (Mao et al., 2008). Diffusion allows substances to pass in and out of the cell using no energy, such as oxygen, or carbon...
