Let's say the total solution is 100 liters. 50 of the liters is glucose and 50 is water. We want to make the 50 glucose equal to 10% of the total solution. For that to happen, we need to make the total solution 500 liters (50 of the 500 would be a 10% solution). So we add 400 liters of water to the original 100 liter (50/50) solution.

Take the total number of units and multiply by 4. Add that much in water.

Does glucose move into the sac?

If you have a semipermeable sac containing 4 percent NaCl, 9 percent glucose, and 10 percent albumin is suspended in a solution with the following com- position: 10 percent NaCl, 10 percent glucose, and 40 percent albumin. The glucose will move into a semi-permeable sac.

Is 10 percent glucose solution hypertonic?

No. Everything below 0.9% of NaCl is hypotonic and every solution with concentration over 0.9% is hypertonic solution.  Isotonic solution (to blood) is the one that has 0.9% of NaCl, or some other concentration of another compound.

How do you make a 10 percent Clorox solution?

10% = 10 parts in 100 or 1 in 10 parts. So if you make a solution, you need to make sure that whatever the amount of Clorox you use, the total amount of solution is 10 times larger. How to do this accurately depends on the measuring equipment you have available and the amount of solution you need to make.
