Stay hydrated during the hot summer!
Play Labster’s Osmosis simulation and learn how to restore the fluid levels
Choose the right saline solution for an intravenous drip. Join Dr. One in the lab to discover what a hypotonic, isotonic and hypertonic solution is and how water is transported across the cell membrane in osmosis.
After playing this simulation you’ll be able to:
- Understand how solute concentration drives the movement of molecules across a semipermeable membrane
- Distinguish between osmosis and diffusion
- Define the terms osmosis and hypotonic, hypertonic and isotonic solutions
- Compare and contrast osmosis in hypotonic and hypertonic solutions
