Osmotic pressure on blood cells diagram[edit]

Osmotic pressure on blood cells
Very high enc value for wikipedia. I would love to see a bit higher resolution. It's SVG by the way.

  • Support. With the tons of excellent illustrations LoH has created so far, it is surprising not seeing more of her pics on FPC. --Dschwen(A) 19:14, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment. It doesn't really show why the osmosis is happening. Maybe show little particles moving in or out of the cell to emphasize that it's osmosis going on? Right now it looks like water just flowing around for no reason --frothT 20:10, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
    • A good animation illustrating osmosis is still missing. But I would not cram that into this image. This pic shows hypotonic, hypertonic, and isotonic blood cells, and that's it. It is not explaining osmosis, just as it is not explaining how a red blood cell works. --Dschwen(A) 20:19, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
      • I don't mean an animation, I'm just trying to say that while it explains what's going on, it doesn't even attempt to explain why. It seems like it shouldn't be too hard to add particulates "in motion" with little arrows --frothT 20:30, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
        • The only particles in motion are the water molecules, that is the point and is shown at the bottom (or has that been added since Froth's comment?). Possibly what you require is the definition of hypertonic vs hypotonic vs isotonic? David D. (Talk) 17:59, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Support Clear and accurate. TimVickers 01:45, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Support. I would prefer it if the hypotonic cells showed a little more bloating. Right now, the difference with the regular cells is hard to spot if you're not sure what to look for. Why are the arrows in two different colors? Isn't the arrow head enough to show the direction? - Mgm|(talk) 09:50, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Support very illustrative -- Lycaon 08:15, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
