If we look at the hypertonic meaning: Hyper means more, and tonic means strength. It is a type of solution with more solute concentration than the solvent in it. If the cell has a hypertonic solution inside, then it means that the surrounding environment will have a hypotonic solution. The solute and solvent flow depends upon their ingredients’ concentration. If the cell is under hypertonic solution, then the water will be moved outside the cell by osmotic pressure to equalize the concentration on either side of the cell membrane. Plant cells use hypertonic solutions to draw water into the vacuole. Moreover, the nerve cells of the animals also depend upon the ions of hypertonic solution. Which generates an action potential.
