Turgid, plasmolyzed, and flaccid plant cells.
(a) When the concentration of solutes inside a cell is higher than that outside (the cell is surrounded by a hypotonic solution), more water will enter the cell than will leave it. As a result, a plant cell will become swollen or turgid. (b) When the concentration of solutes outside a cell is greater than within it (the cell is surrounded by a hypertonic solution), more water will leave the cell t

Description (a) When the concentration of solutes inside a cell is higher than that outside (the cell is surrounded by a hypotonic solution), more water will enter the cell than will leave it. As a result, a plant cell will become swollen or turgid. (b) When the concentration of solutes outside a cell is greater than within it (the cell is surrounded by a hypertonic solution), more water will leave the cell than will enter it. As a result, a plant cell will become plasmolyzed. (c) When the concentration of solutes is the same outside and inside a plant cell (the cell is bathed in an isotonic solution), it will be flaccid.
