Endosmosis is the method by which water moves in a cell or an animal from the neighboring liquid mixture through a membrane that permits specific constituents to pass through it while holding back others. As far as an animal cell is concerned, if it is preserved in hypotonic solution, it ruptures on account of the lack of the cell wall whereas in case of plant cell, the cell membrane pushes against the cell wall owing to the movement of water in the interior through the procedure of endosmosis.
