    movement from a higher concentration to a lower concentration
  2. hypertonic solution
    • above normal concentration
    • cell has higher concentration than outside of the cell so water is let out of the cell
    • causes the cell to shrink
  3. hypotonic solution/ hippotonic solution
    • below normal solution amount
    • cell has lower concentration than outside the cell so movement into the cell causes the cell to swell
