###### Question details

Given a piece of healthy tissue weighing 500 grams, density of the tissue is 1 gram/mL and consisting of 60% water by weight. Also, given that the water in this tissue is distributed such that 2/3 of the water is intracellular and 1/3 is extracellular and that both the ICF and ECF have an osmolarity = 300 milliosmols/L. If you place this tissue in 2 liters of solution containing 8.775 grams of NaCl, what will be the final volume of intracellular fluids? _________ mL

Answer: 354 mL

What will be the final volume of the extracellular fluid in this tissue (including the NaCl solution)? _________ mL

Answer: 1946 mL
