In this regard, how does a paramecium respond to changing solute concentrations?
1. ?When the water solute concentration is reduced, the number of vacuole contractions will increase. But when the water solute concentrations rise, the number of vacuole contraction will decrease.
Also, what problem does paramecium have? Paramecium lives in pond (fresh water) so its body is hypertonic compared to the surrounding. This will cause water move into its body. If Paramecium does not control the excess amount of water, its body will swell and finally burst.
Moreover, 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.
Which two structures contain DNA in a paramecium?
The micronucleus and the macronucleus are the two structures that contain DNA.
