Diffusion: Transport of solutes, water, gases or other material from a region of higher concentration to a region of lower concentration. osmosis: the passive transport of water across a membrane. osmolarity: the concentration of solution expressed in terms of osmotically active particles or osmoles. hyperosmotic: having a higher osmotic pressure hypoosmotic: having a lower osmotic pressure 3. Hemolymph concentrations from 3 different shrimp series when placed in solutions of different salt concentrations: salt solution (mOsm) Shrimp A hemolymph (mOsm) Shrimp B hemplymph (mOsm) Shrimp C hemolymph (mOsm) 0 60 30 30 60 250 100 65 100 350 125 102 200 350 150 208 350 350 250 350 500 350 350 500 750 600 755 500 1000 995 995 500 a.What is hemolymph?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
