when an animal cell is placed in a concentrated or diloute solution, it soakes up the water but because animal cell do not have cell walls like plant cells they will eventually burst.

What happens to animal cells exposed to hypertonic and hypotonic solutions?

Hypertonic solution: highly concentrated, therefore water exits the cell, attracted to the solution. Cell ends up deflated-looking.Hypotonic solution: not very concentrated, therefore water enters cell, attracted to the solution inside the cell. Cell ends up looking like it's going to burst (and actually can burst).


If animal cell is put into a high concentrated solution what will happen?

It will burst from the pressure caused from the imbalance of osmosis.

Why does the animal cell shrink when placed in concentrated salt solution?

This is because of the process of osmosis. When an animal cell is placed in concentrated salt solution (of lower water potential than the animal cell/ hypertonic relative to the cell), water molecules will leave the cell and move into the salt solution to achieve equilibrium of water potential. This causes the animal cell to decrease in size and shrink. Spikes appear around the cell, and the cell is said to be crenated.

What happens to a animal cell when in a hypertonic solution?

When an animal cell is placed into a hypertonic solution, the water will generally flow out of the cell in an effort to balance the concentration of solutes.


What happens if excess water moves into animal cells by osmosis?

If excess water moves into an animal cell, it will eventually burst. This happens if the cell is placed in a hypotonic solution (a solution with a lower solute concentration than the cell).


What happens when an animal cell is placed in a hyptonic solution?

If an animal cell is placed in a hypotonic solution, there will be a net movement of water into the cell and it will eventually burst. If an animal cell is placed in a hypertonic solution, there will be a net movement of water out of the cell and it will shrink.


What happens to animal cells in a hypertonic solution?

In a hypertonic solution the cell's fluid will move out of the cell and into the surrounding solution (osmosis) , causing the cell to shrink.


Why do animal cells burst when they are in hypotonic solution?

The cells burst because the solution is diluted i.e.,the cell is more concentrated than the solution. So the cells gain water by osmosis and since animal cells have no cell wall they will fill with water until they become so stretched that they burst.


What can happen to animal cells when placed in a hypertonic solution?

A hypertonic solution is less concentrated compared to the cytoplasm of the animal cell. When an animal cell is placed in a hypertonic solution, water diffuses across the selectively permeable cell membrane in an attempt to form an equilibrium between the two liquids. If the solution is hypertonic enough compared to the cell's cytoplasm, the cell would swell and could possibly explode.

What happens to a animal cell when placed in an hypertonic solution?

An animal cell in a hypertonic solution will shrivel up because the water inside the cell will diffuse to the outside where there is less water and more ions.


What happens when an animal cell is placed in a hypotonic solution?

A hypotonic solution contains less solutes than the cell. This means there will be a net movement of water into the cell. An animal cell will eventually burst in this situation.

What happens to a animal cell in hypotonic solution?

the cell will become flaccid or will undergo plasmolysis because the concentration of solute is more inside the cell and less in the solution.


What happens to animal cell in a hypertonic solution?

If you put a animal cell in hypertonic than the animal cell will shrink because hypertonic contains salt which the cell is not use to so it will shrink.
