If a cell lives in hypotonic environment what will happen if placed in hypertonic environment?
If a cell is used to living in a hypotonic environment, that means that there exists less solute concentration outside of the cell. Take, for example, a red blood cell (RBC). When the RBC is placed in distilled water, the RBC is hypertonic to the water. The water is hypotonic to the RBC. In this case, the RBC will swell, and in most cases rupture. However, if one were to put an RBC in very salty water, the RBC would be hypotonic to the salt water. The salt water would be a hypertonic environment. In this case, the water would diffuse out of the RBC, causing it to shrivel. Awigman
