road salt has been dropped on grass. keep osmosis in mind, what would happen?

answer:
since the road salt is hypertonic solution and therefore the water in the grass would diffuse into the road salt thus causing the grass to die.

Is this right? What should I add?

  1. That sounds good to me. We all know salt will kill grass. It's good that science agrees with that.
