Isotonic Solution:- If the medium has exactly the same water concentration as the cell, there will be no net movement of water across the cell membrane. Such a solution is known as an isotonic solution. The water flow in this type of solution is zero. Hypotonic solution:- A hypotonic solution that has a lower solute concentration in comparison to another solution. The cell will also have a higher osmotic pressure the tendency for water to move into a cell by osmosis than the solution surrounding it. This will cause fluid to move into the cell and the cell often appears bloated. Hypertonic solution:- A hypertonic solution is a particular type of solution that has a greater concentration of solutes on the outside of a cell when compared with the inside of a cell.
