Which of the following is permeable to water but not sodium?

Which of the following is permeable to water but not sodium?

The cell membrane of red blood cells is permeable to water but not to sodium chloride, NaCI.

When there are two solutions separated by a semipermeable membrane?

Osmosis is the spontaneous movement of solvent through a semi-permeable membrane. It occurs when two solutions of different concentrations are separated by such a membrane.

How does the solution on Side A of the container differ from the solution on side B?

A container is divided into two compartments by a membrane that is fully permeable to water and small ions. Water is added to one side of the membrane (side A), and a 5% solution of sodium chloride (NaCl) is added to the other (side B). The level of solution on side A will be higher than side B.

What will happen if Rbcs is kept in 0.7 NaCl solution?

It will lead to cell burst. ii) When RBC’s are placed in hypertonic solution, the cells will shrink due to movement of water out of the cell, it will lead to shrinking of RBC’s due to.

What is Hyperosmotic solution?

Hyperosmotic: solution with the greater concentration of solute ( salt water compared to fresh water). If a cell from a salt water fish is placed in a beaker of fresh water, the cell is said to be hyperosmotic to the water. Isosmotic: solutions of equal solute concentrations are said to be isosmotic.

How do you know if a solute is penetrating?

Solutes that enter a cell by any means (simple diffusion, protein-mediated transport, and so on) are said to be “penetrating” solutes. If the cell has a higher initial concentration of nonpenetrating solutes than the solution, at equilibrium water will have moved into the cell. The solution is hypotonic to the cell.

When there is no net movement of water the solution is?

Key terms

Term Meaning
Passive transport Type of transport that does not require energy to occur
Osmosis The net movement of water across a semipermeable membrane from an area of lower solute concentration to an area of higher solute concentration
