Hypertonic/Hypotonic/Isotonic solutions & Plant/Animal cells

HideShow resource information

The volume of water that moves in or out of a cell depends on the water potential of the surrounding solution. Animal Cells Hypotonic solution - when an animal cell is placed in a solution with a higher water potential, the net movement of free water molecules is into the cell by osmosis, down a water potential gradient. The cell with burst. Isotonic solution - when an animal cell is placed in a solution where the water potential is equal on both sides of the cell membrane, the net movement of water molecules into and out of the cell is the same. Hypertonic solution - when an animal cell is placed in a solution with a lower water potential, the net movement of free water…

You should at least make it into bullet points or paragraphs to structure it clearly. :(
Anyways, very good and useful information you've got there! ^^
