Osmosis

by Jeffery Mills

Osmosis

Osmosis is the tendency of water in and around a cell or how much pressure is inside and outside of the cell. There are three examples of osmosis Isotonic, hypotonic, and hypertonic.

Isotonic solutions

Isotonic solutions have equal concentration or the same amount of particles or pressure on both the inside and outside of the cell.

Hypotonic solutions

Hypotonic solutions have more concentration or particles or pressure on the inside of the cell and lower amounts of concentration on the outside of the cell.

Hypertonic solutions

Hypertonic solutions have more concentration or pressure on the outside of the cell and lower amounts of concentration on the inside of the cell.
