What would will happen when eukaryotic cells are placed in hypertonic,hypotonic and isotonic solutions

Answers (1)

If we put eukaryotic cell in hypotonic solution the  cell would swell up due to endosmosis because hypotonic solution has less solute and more water than another solution.
If we put eukaryotic cell in in isotonic solution the cell will remain of the same size because the relative concentrations of solute and water are equal on both sides of the membrane and therefore , there is no net water movement and hence, no change in the size of the cell. 
If we put eukaryotic cell in in hypertonic solution the cell will shrink due to exosmosis because it has a higher solute concentration  on the outside of a cell when compared with the inside of a cell.
