Is 5% glucose hypertonic or hypotonic?

Is 5% glucose hypertonic or hypotonic?

If the solution has a lower concentration of nonpenetrating solutes than the cell does, then there will be net movement of water into the cell at equilibrium and the solution is hypotonic. A solution of 5% dextrose has zero nonpenetrating solutes, and therefore, it is hypotonic.

What would happen if a cell containing 97% water were placed in a 10% salt solution?

Explain what would happen if a cell containing 97% water were placed in a 10% salt solution. The solution is hypertonic. The cell will shrivel up (cremate) because it is releasing its water into the solution.

What will happen if an animal cell that has a solute concentration of 5% is placed in a 1% saltwater solution?

The cell will shrink in size, losing water due to osmosis. A cell with 5% solute concentration is placed in a beaker with a 1% solute concentration. The cell will gain water and expand. If there is 100% water and 97% water outside the cell and 3% salt inside a cell, what happens to the cell?

What would happen to the cell if it were placed in beaker B?

in beaker B. Water would move out of the cells. The cells would shrivel. Very salty water is a hypertonic solution for the red blood cells.

Why are blood cells in 10% NaCl crenate?

The blood cells in the 10% NaCl solution were crenated; we know this because all the cells viewed were considerably smaller. We know this because the cells in the viewing field were much bigger, but there were very few of them because many had burst.

What are the major differences between the red blood cell and the elodea cell?

A major difference between red blood cells and elodea cells, is that. elodea cells have a cell wall, which protects them from bursting.

What will happen if red blood cells are placed in 4% aqueous solution of NaCl?

The bursting of the red blood cell is called hemolysis. If a red blood cell is placed in a solution that contains 0.85% NaCl the water moves equally out and into the cell, the solution in the cell and the solution around the cell are the same or in equilibrium.
