Leslie Trujillo January 30th 2019 Mon/Wed/Fri 10:45-11:35 How does osmosis differ from other types of simple diffusion? Osmosis differs from other types of diffusions due to how high the permeability is in the Osmosis membrane. Water is able to just sneak right in. Tonicity - solution is able to change shape or tone by adjusting cells’ internal water volume - Explain what is meant by an isotonic solution - isotonic solution contains the same level of osmolarity as the inside of the cell so does not have to make any changes - How do hypotonic and hypertonic solutions differ from isotonic - hyper has higher osmolarity so when water is released it causes cell to shrink, hypo has lower osmolarity meaning when water is absorbed it has the potential to cause the cell the burst. - Explain what happens to a living cell if placed into an isotonic solution vs hypotonic solution vs hypertonic solution - if the living cell is placed into isotonic

    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.
