Solute (solid) concentration outside is higher than the inside of a cell. Diffusion of water will be to the outside (cell will shrink).
Solute (solid) concentration outsideis lower than the inside of the cell. Diffusion of water will be to the inside (cell will burst).
Solute (solid) concentration outside is equal to the inside of the cell. Diffusion will be equal in both directions (no change to the cell).
To shrivel (animal).
The rupture or destruction of red blood cells (animal).
Contraction (shrivel) of a plant cell as a result of loss of water from the cell: recovers because the cell wall stays the same. (Plant).
The ratio of solutes (solids) to solvents (liquids in which a solute is dissolved to form a solution) within a solution.
Turgor pressure is the main pressure of the cell contents against the cell wall in plant cells and bacteria cells, determined by the water content of the vacuole, resulting from osmotic pressure.
factors effecting whether a molecule diffuses as they apply to the lab
Amount of concentration and the temperature.
