When the pressure becomes so intense that the solvent from the hypotonic solution cannot pass through the membrane, it is known as osmotic pressure, and it will prevent the attainment of an isotonic state. The principles that underlie osmosis...

In comparison, a hypotonic solution will have a concentration ranging from 0 M to .06M, and a hypertonic solution will have a concentration ranging from .06M or higher. This caused me to accept the alternate hypothesis and reject the null hypothesis; therefore, the potato was affected by the sucrose solution as we saw a change in mass of the potato tuber slices. ...
