If the flow of water takes place within a plant, it signifies that the plant is in a hypotonic environment. Within the plant, there is a hypertonic environment in comparison to the outside environment, that is, more solute molecules are present than the water molecules.
Thus, the cells of the plants captivate water osmotically, which then expands in size and turns turgid. The cell of a plant only becomes turgid and unlike the cell of an animal, it does not burst because of the existence of cellulose cell wall, which is not found in animal cells.
Answer and explanation;
If water flows into a plant, it means that the plant is in a hypotonic environment.
The inside of the plant cell s hypertonic (more solute molecules than water molecules) to the outside environment, therefore the plant cell absorbs water osmotically, it then increases in size and becomes turgid.
The plant cell only becomes turgid and unlike the animal cells it does not burst due to the presence of cellulose cell wall which is absent in animal cells.
