    when a cell shrivles in a hypertonic solution its called something.

    when a cell gets bloated and turgid in a hypotinic solution.

    I cant remember the words for these and which one is which.

    Cytolysis - the lysis, or death, of cells due to the rupture of the cell membrane caused by excessive osmosis.

    Crenation - contraction of cells within animals in a hypertonic solution, due to the loss of water through osmosis.

    Plasmolysis - Crenation in plant cells.

    Plant cells don't tend to lyse due to turgor pressure because of their strong membranes.
