Hey everyone, i am new to this site.
I was wondering if you could help me with this question:
What would happen if a cell containing 97% water were placed in a 10% salt solution? (A 10% salt solution would contain 90% water)
I need to include the following in my answer:
A. Explain what occurs, why, and how
B. What is the specific name of the transport process? (diffusion, osmosis, dialysis)
C. What is the specific name for what happens to the cell?
I need to complete this questions for an online Anatomy and Physiology class I am taking.
I don't need the answer, i just need someone to explain to me what is happening.
I feel like my book isn't giving me enought information to understand what is happening.
I'm pretty sure i am going to need to know if the tonicity is isotonic, hypertonic, or hypotonic, and i can't seem to understand that part.
I have read my book severaly times, and i am still unsure.
If you just give me little hints or somthing, i would appriciate that a bunch!
Please help if you can!
