What is the difference between flaccidity and plasmolysis ???
Asked by dixiciju | 22nd Mar, 2020, 06:48: PM
- When a living plant cell is placed in a hypertonic solution, it loses water through osmosis. There is shrinkage or contraction of the contents of the cell. This process is known as plasmolysis.
- Flaccidity is the condition which occurs when a plant cell is placed in an isotonic solution.
- Flaccid cells are those whose protoplast has no turgor pressure. Plasmolysis cells are those whose protoplast has no turgor pressure and is also shrunken.

- Does a shrunken grape have hypertonic or hypotonic solution? Pls let me know.THANKS
- By which force or how does water, goes above the roots? Is it root pressure or suction force? Pls let me know. Thanks
- What is osmosis
- The water reaches to the top most part of a tree due to the transpirational pull during day time. What makes water rise upwards during night?
- Why balsam plant is always used in most of the plant experiments.
- what are osmosis
- does osmotic pressure occur due to the weight and pressure exerted by the liquid in the cell?
- in which direction does osmotic pressure occur? towards the centre of the cell or towards the wall? give reasons.
- why does osmotic pressure occur?
