I don't know what would happen to the RBC in this situation. Hope you help me guys!
200mM NaCl will dissociate into 200 particles of Na + 200 particles of Cl = 400mosm solution which is hypertonic. Hence the RBC will lose water -> shrinks
urea crosses all inter compartmental barriers so its not an effective osmole. no change in RBC volume cuz some of the urea will go inside it as well
