There are three types of osmosis hypotonic, hypertonic, and isotonic. These are the effects of different solutions on blood cells. This picture is of the osmotic pressures on blood cells.


Primera sesión de repaso de PAU: seleccionando imágenes - Bioquímica - Agua y Sales Minerales - Conceptos de presión osmótica y HOMEOSTASIS. Osmotic pressure; Osmotic Shock

3 An aid for students learning chemistry at the basic level in high school. Make learning fun! Osmotic Pressure!

Turgor Pressure: pushes the plasma membrane against the cell wall of plant, bacteria and fungi cells; this pressure or turgidity is caused by the osmotic flow of water from area of low solute concentration outside of the cell into the cell's vacuole, which has a higher solute concentration; healthy plant cells are turgid & plants rely on this to maintain rigidity; not observed in animal cells (no cell walls); flaccid: reduced pressure
