If a cell is in a hypertonic solution, the cell is said to be in a __________ state.


Expert Answer

Step 1


A cell is placed in the hypertonic solution

Step 2

A hypertonic solution is solution which has higher concentration than the cytoplasmic fluid of the cell and since there is higher concentration outside, water from inside the cell travels outside due to osmotic pressure.

Step 3

Due to the transfer of water from inside the cell to outside of the ...
