How does a paramecium respond to changing solute concentrations?
Considering this, which tiny structures help the paramecium move around?
?Cilia, which are small and hair-like, help the paramecium move around.
Also to know is, what happens to the volume of the paramecium now?
The volume of the paramecium decreases. Infer : Water moves into and out of the paramecium by a process called osmosis . Osmosis is the movement of water across a membrane from a region of lower solute concentration to a region of higher solute concentration.
The contractile vacuole removes excess water and prevents swelling and or bursting. When the water solute concentration is reduced, the number of vacuole contractions will increase.
