a liquid substance capable of dissolving other substances
the dissolved matter in a solution; the component of a solution that changes its state
solvent passes from area of LOW concentration to HIGH concentration
concentration of particles in a solution (it's pulling power)
taking place with normal concentration(muscle), solution that contains the same concentration of water and solutes as the intracellular fluid
hypertonic solution
greater osmolarity than plasma (fluid with higher concentration)
hypotonic solution
less osmolarity than plasma (fluid w lower concentration)
