What will most likely occur when a cell is placed into a saline solution that has a higher salt concentration than the cell?
Water will flow out of the cell and the cell will shrivel in a process called crenation.
A raw egg without its shell but with its inner membrane intact will either swell or shrink when placed in a solution because of the concentration gradient. The membrane is semi-permeable. An egg will shrink if it is placed in a solution that has a higher solute concentration than inside it. It will swell if it is placed in a solution that has a lower solute concentration than inside the egg.
What will most likely occur when a cell is placed into a saline solution that has a higher salt concentration than inside the cell?
A hypertonic solution is a solution that has a high concentration of solute, in this case the solute being salt. When a red blood cell is placed in a hypertonic solution, since the salt concentration is higher in the outside of the cell, the water concentration is lower there as well. Therefore, through the process of osmosis, the water diffuses from the inside of the cell to the outside of the cell.
When two aqueous solutions that differ in solute concentration are placed on either side of a semipermeable membrane and osmosis is allowed to take place where will the water go?
The plant with flexible cell walls when placed in a hypertonic solution tends to grow larger in size by uptaking the solution by the principle of osmosis where molecules from higher concentration moves to a region of lower concentration and this happens in the cell through small minute pores present in the cell walls.
A celery stalk is placed in a solution it begins to wilt what is a likely component of that solution?
A celery stalk is placed in a solution it begins to wilt what is a likely componet of that solution?
osmosis is the diffusion of water across a membrane. Regualtes cells osmotic pressure. diffusion- simply means that a substance travels down its concentration gradient to areas of lower solute concentration. Osmosis is a type of diffusion. hypotonic solution: if a cell is placed in an hypotonic solution (a solution with less solute concentration) the cell will swell (and eventually lyse) as water rushes into it to dilute the hypertonic environment in the cell. hypertonic solution…
What would happen to a cell if it was placed into a solution that had higher concentration of salt then the cell?
It will probably burst. A hypo-tonic solution means that there is less dissolved solute in the solution than there is in the cell, and a greater concentration of the solution (ie water). Since there's a greater concentration of water outside the cell, osmosis will cause a net movement of water into the cell, causing it to swell and most-likely burst.
What would most likely happen to a onion cell of it were placed in a liquid with a concentration of solutes?
Describe what happens when sugar solutions with two different concentrations are placed on opposite sides of a semipermeable membrane in a container?
The cell would swell and lyse (burst) because water would enter the cell faster than it would leave. This is because of osmosis, the diffusion of water across a selectively permeable membrane. Water diffuses across a membrane from a region of lower solute concentration to that of a higher solute concentration until the solute concentrations on both sides of the membrane are equal. If the outside solution is hypotonic, the solution has a lower solute…
As the "salt solution" is a hypertonic solution which has the concentration of the solute outside of the cell is higher than the inside's. That also means the concentration of the water is now smaller in the outside of the cell than the inside's, which make the water molecules diffuse from the inside of the cell to the outside, resulted in making the cell (onion cell in this case) shrunken, or smaller.
There will be a net movement of water from the bag into the starch solution. This occurs because water moves, by osmosis, from where it is in higher concentration to where it is in lower concentration. When you weigh the bag at the end of the experiment, it should have less mass than when you started. The starch will not enter the bag, because the dialysis tubing is impermeable to starch.
This is answered in dot point form because this is the best way to answer your questions in VCE biology -A decalcified egg that is placed in a hypertonic solution will mean that the solute concentration outside of the egg is higher than the solute concentration in the egg cells -This means that due to the solute not being able to move through the semi-permeable membrane, osmosis will take place -Water molecules will move out…
