Asked by Anjali Srivastava | 07 Jun, 2016, 01:43: PM
Expert Answer

Differences between hypotonic and hypertonic solutions:

Hypotonic solution

Hypertonic solution

  • The solution outside the cell has a lower solute concentration than the fluids inside the cell.
  • The solution outside the cell has higher solute concentration than the fluids inside the cell.
  • Endosmosis occurs as the water molecules move into the cell.
  • Exosmosis occurs as the water molecules move out from the cell.
  • Cells shrink in size and lose shape.
  • Cells slightly enlarge or even burst.
  • Example: Fresh water is a hypotonic solution for saltwater fish.
  • Example: Corn syrup is a hypertonic solution for a cell.
