Need help understanding the following question:
Using the known sucrose concentrations inside each of the tubing pieces and their respective beakers, identify whether the solution inside the tube was hypotonic, hypertonic, or isotonic in comparison to the beaker solution it was placed in.
I have the following data from the experiment:
Band Color Sucrose % in Beaker Sucrose % in Bag Initial Volume (mL) Final Volume (mL) Net Displacement (mL)
Yellow 3% 30% 10mL 16mL 6mL
Red 3% 15% 10mL 13mL 3mL
Blue 3% 3% 10mL 10mL 0mL
Green 30% 3% 10mL 7mL -3mL
Based off of what I've read, I concluded that the yellow and red were hypotonic, blue was isotonic, and green was hypertonic, however, in the question it states to find whether they are hypo, hyper or iso " inside the tube".
This has me confused. Is there a difference?
