Cell Biology descriptions

Post by DarpaChief » Thu Mar 11, 2010 10:16 pm

Hey all

I have recently done an experiment pertaining to onion cells put into various solutions(hypotonic, hypertonic, isotonic) and were asked to draw diagrams for them. There's a section in my observation chart asking for the description of these cells, and I filled them in, but she specified she wanted very specific decription. What do you think this description entails? I mean, I wrote down how much space the vacuole took up in the cell's cytoplasm but I am stuck when it comes to describing other aspects of it.

Any help would be appreciated
Thanks!
