A hypotonic solution.
A red blood cell will swell and burst when placed in a hypotonic solution. A hypotonic solution has a lower solute concentration than the interior of the cell. Placing a cell in distilled water will cause it to swell and burst as distilled water is hypotonic to the cytoplasm of the cell.
They swell because of abnormal concentration of osmotic pressure.
When a red blood cell is placed in distilled water it will swell and burst. This is a physical change.
A cell placed in hypotonic solution will burst or split as a result of water entering into the cell which makes it continue to swell until it burst.
Red blood cells will neither shrink or swell/burst when placed in an isotonic solution because the concentration of water inside the cell is the same as outside of the cell.
swell and burst
It will swell and Burst. Placed in a hypertonic state, Cells would shrink and collapse.
Humans and most animals have oils on their skins that are designed to prevent water from entering pores. This prevents absorption and therefore we do not swell.
it would swell and burst
Blood cells swell in hypotonic solutions
Then RBC will swell into a spheric shape!
3. water from the blood cell into its environment
Water will enter the cell by osmosis, causing the cell to swell and possibly even burst.
Which is called Plasmoptysis.
If a human red blood cell is placed in a hypotonic environment, the red blood cell will swell and eventually burst. The reason for this is because a hypotonic solution has a higher osmotic pressure compared to the cytoplasm of the red blood cell. Thus, the water from the hypotonic solution moves into the red blood cell causing it to rupture.
As, human cell is an animal cell. When it is placed in an hypotonic solution like freshwater,it will finally swell and burst
If they are in a hypotonic solution, water will flow into the RBC causing it to swell or possible burst.
the red blood cells will swell and eventually burst as a result of too much water entering into it
IT will swell and burst
Due to Exosmosis.
If the concentration of the salt solution is high it will shrink and if the concentration of the solution is low it will swell and then burst!!
