Abstract

1. Concentrations of BaCl(2), MgCl(2), SrCl(2), and CaCl(2) can be found in which the volume of washed human red cells remains almost unchanged for short periods of time; in more concentrated solutions the cells shrink, and in less concentrated ones they swell. Between tonicities of about 1.5 and 0.75, the van't Hoff-Mariotte law applies roughly, but at… (More)
