3 large central vacuole (stores water)
what is osmosis?
diffusion of molecules thru semi-permiable membrane
what does it mean to have a semi permiable membrane?
membrane allows small molecules to enter & leave
and blocks big ones
what is a solvent
liquid that dissolves the solute
what is solute?
substance that dissolves in liquid solvent producing a solution
the greater the concentration of a molecule the ____
slower its rate of difussion
what is the Law of Diffusion?
whenever a semi-permeable membrane seperates unequal water concentration; water in high concentration move out to areas of low concentration
what is osmosis?
the movement of water in high concentration move out to areas of low concentration
a solution of higher solute concentration has _____ concentration of water & is called?
lesser; called HYPERtonic
when water concentrations are equal it is?
a solution of lower solute concentration has _____ concentration of water & is called?
more water concentration & called HYPOtonic
what is plasmolysis
as plant lose water (in hypertonic solution) it shrivels & plasma membrane pulls away from cell wall.
