. Determine the types of Solution on the basis of Osmotic Pressure


Best Answer

Types of Solution on the basis of Osmotic Pressure  

i. Isotonic – Two solutions are said to be isotonic if they have the same osmotic pressures.

ii. Hypertonic – A hypertonic solution is the one with high osmotic pressure when compared to another solution which is separated from it by a semi-permeable membrane.

iii. Hypotonic – A hypotonic solution is the one with low osmotic pressure when compared to another solution which is separated from it by a semi-permeable membrane.
