• Osmosis Data Analysis
    with a lower solute concentration than is found in the cells, water moves into the cells by osmosis, causing the cells to swell; such a solution is hypotonic to the cells. When red blood cells are placed in pure water, water rapidly enters the cells by osmosis and causes the cells to burst, a phenomenon...

  • The Effect of Salt Concentration on Osmosis in Potato Cells
    The Effect of Salt Concentration on Osmosis in Potato Cells We should first explain what Osmosis is. It’s a passage of water from a region of high water concentration through membrane to a region of low water. Semi membrane is a very thin layer of material, which allows some things to pass through them...

In an isotonic solution, there is an equal amount of solute concentration on either side of the membrane, so the net water movement will be zero.
