Describe an activity to demonstrate endosmosis and exosmosis.

Endosmosis

When a cell is kept in a hypertonic solution, the water starts moving into the cell from a region of higher concerntration to the region of lower concerntration is called endosmosis. As a result the cell swells up.

Activity - 

  1. Buy some raisens
  2. Put them into a hypertonic solution (eg. water)
  3. Now wait for some time and observe the raisens.
  4. The raisens starts swelling up.

Observation - Through this activity we observe that after putting raisens in hypotonic solution the raisens swells up. Their is also an increase in thier weight.

Exosmosis

When a cell is kept in a hypotonic solution, the inner content of cell shrinks as the water moves from the region of higher concerntraion to the region of lower concerntration. This is called exosmosis.

Activity -

  1. Buy some raisens
  2. Put them in a hypotonic solution (eg. A sports drink with a lot of salts in it)
  3. Wait for a while and observe that the cell starts shrinking

Observation - Through this actvity we observe that after putting raisens in a hypotonic solution the raisens starts losing water content and gets shrinked.

  • 36

the movement of water from the mesophyl-cell vacuole to a film on the cell surface is due to exosmosis

the movement of water from a film on the cell surface to vapour in the intercellular spaces is due to endosmosis

Endosmosis

When a cell is kept in a hypertonic solution, the water starts moving into the cell from a region of higher concerntration to the region of lower concerntration is calledendosmosis. As a result the cell swells up.

  2. Put them into a hypertonic solution (eg. water)
  3. Now wait for some time and observe the raisens.
  4. The raisens starts swelling up.

Observation- Through this activity we observe that after putting raisens in hypotonic solution the raisens swells up. Their is also an increase in thier weight.

Exosmosis

When a cell is kept in a hypotonic solution, the inner content of cell shrinks as the water moves from the region of higher concerntraion to the region of lower concerntration. This is calledexosmosis.

Activity -

  1. Buy some raisens
  2. Put them in a hypotonic solution (eg. A sports drink with a lot of salts in it)
  3. Wait for a while and observe that the cell starts shrinking

Observation- Through this actvity we observe that after putting raisens in a hypotonic solution the raisens starts losing water content and gets shrinked.

When a cell is kept in a hapertonic solution.
  • -7
Cell shrinks in hypertonic solution and swell up in hypotonic solution. You had wrote opposite of it.

When we put a raisin inside a bowl of water, the raisin swells up after a few minutes because the higher concentration inside the raisin due to endosmosis.

When we put a raisin in concentration solution of salt, the water comes out from the raisin due to exosmosis.
