  • Explain why the concentration of water in cells should be maintained within a narrow range for optimal function
  • Changes in water concentration changes the relative concentration of solutes in the cells
    • This will impact on the osmotic gradient across cell membranes
    • Too little water will increase the concentration of solutes and alter the pH
