What will happen to human red blood cells (crenate, lyse, or no change) if they are placed in the following solutions?

20% NaCl solution

  • Biology -

    20%NaCl sollution is the hypertonic sollution if we keep our redblood cells in this sollution means the water present in the rbc will come outside through the plasmamembrane of rbc and finally the rbc(flacid cell)may dye and this process is called plasmolysis.
