How Are Solutions Classified According To Their Comparative Tonicity
Comparatively to other a solution can be hypotonic (or hyposmotic), isotonic (or isosmotic) or hypertonic (or hyperosmotic).When a solution is less concentrated than other the adjective hypotonic is given and the more concentrated is called hypertonic. When two compared solutions have same concentration both receives the adjective isotonic. So this classification makes sense only for comparison of solutions.
