Last week your TA’s provided you with many specific guidelines and hints regarding the preparation of the Introduction for the Enzyme Lab. This week, I will give you some less specific guidelines and hints for Lab 6 – the lab on Membranes. Question 1: How will exposure of RBC’s to solutions of different tonicity, either hypo-, iso-, or hypertonic, affect RBC volume? Focus your efforts on the microscopic observations. This question is fairly simple in comparison to those that follow. Supporting Facts. Most of what you need here can be derived from the wording of the question. Define the terms hypo-, iso-, and hypertonic. Following from the terms describing tonicity and their definitions, you will need to define the term osmosis and then describe how tonicity influences osmotic water movement. You need to provide some insight into the size and form of RBC’s as well as the internal composition (tonicity?) of these cells . You must establish how the tonicity of the RBC’s environment could influence RBC structure. Experimental Strategy.
