What wil happen if RBCs are kept in hypertonic solution? WHY IS NF3 EXOTHERMIC? WHY IS SF6 more abundant than SCl6??
Kindly post one query at a time.
Answer for your first query.
A hypertonic solution means there is more salt in the solution or external environment than within the red blood cells.
When red blood cells are placed in a hypertonic solution, water within the cells move out via osmosis into the surrounding solution, causing the red blood cells to shrink and shrivel.
