Tonicity is the osmotic pressure or tension of a solution, as in the cells would swell or shrink depending on the tonicity of the environment. When the Elodea leaf in the hypertonic solution, the water in the cell will moving outward causes the cell to shrink, due to Elodea leaf consists of cell wall, so it can maintain the shape of the cell. Earth's water is always in movement, and the natural water cycle, also known as the hydrologic cycle, describes the continuous movement of water on, above, and below the surface of the Earth. Water is always changing states between liquid, vapor, and ice, with these processes happening in the blink of an eye and over millions of years.
Dissolve the eggshell—without breaking the membrane that contains the egg. Then use your naked egg to experiment with osmosis, the movement of water across a membrane. EXERCISE 1. OSMOSIS AND TONICITY INTRODUCTION In osmosis, the diffusion of water occurs across a semipermeable membrane. Water crosses the cell membrane using the membrane's channel proteins or aquaporins. Aquaporins are integral membrane proteins that form pores in the cell membrane. These pores allow water to move in and out of the cell.
Investigate the relationships among various tissue types as well as the molecular and cellular composition of these tissues. AP.2.2 Investigate and be able to describe the histological structural and functional characteristics of the four basic tissue types. Tissue Quizlet
