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.
