Intracellular Fluid (ICF)

This is the cytosol of the cell.




This is the fluid portion inside the cell.

Extracellular Fluid (ECF)

This is the fluid outside of the cell



Solute

Solutes are the dissolved particles in the fluid in the ICF and the ECF.




Solutes can be : Ions/Minerals/ Sugars/Salts



Solution



This is the combination of solutes and water inside the cell and outside the cells.




The ICF consists of a solution made of water and solutes.


The ECF consists of a solution made of water and solutes.



Solution Concentration

The combination of water and solutes inside the cell will equal 100%.


This is disregarding the organelles of the cell.


The combination of water and solutes outside the cell will equal 100%.


If the solute concentration rises, the water concentration _

Decreases

If the water concentration rises, the solute concentration _

Decreases




Hypotonic

This is the solution that consists of a lower concentration of SOLUTES when compared to another solution.



Hypertonic

This is the solution that consists of a high concentration of SOLUTES when compared to another solution.

Isotonic

This is the solution that consists of the same concentration of solutes when compared to another solution.
