What happens to a cell placed in a hypotonic solution?
When a cell is placed in a hypotonic solution, the cell absorbs water into the cell. A hypotonic solution contains fewer dissolved particles than is found in normal cells. ...

What happens when a cell is put in a hypotonic solution?
It increases its fluid intake. A hypotonic solution means that there is more solvent than solute comparitevely to what ever you compare it to. In this case the cell is the hypertonic solution so there is a smaller percentage of water than the hypotonic solution. When the cell is put in the hypotonic solution the water or fluid moves into the cell through osmosis or diffusion to get the cell and the solution to equilibrium. ...

What is the concentration of water in a hypotonic solution?
The concentration of water in a hypotonic solution is relatively high. It is due to smaller amount of solute in the solvent. ...
