What is hypotonic? → A solution with lower salt concentration than in the cells
(cells burst) MORE WATER THAN IN CELL
What is isotonic? → A solution with the same salt concentration as in cells
What is mitosis? → Cell division involving one cell with the diploid number of chromosomes dividing into two identical cells.
(used for repair of tissues and growth of the organism)
What is contained in the thoracic cavity? → Heart and lungs
What are the two main body cavities and what is contained in them? → Nucleus is within the cytoplasm and has a nuclear membrane with nucleoli and chromosomes of the cell. Nucleolus is where DNA and all genetic info for human traits lies.
