Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Comparing the salt concentration between salt water and the stalk of celery, water has more salt content. Through osmosis, water will flow out of the celery stalk cells into the environment (salt water)
The environment is hypertonic
The celery is hypotonic
Water will flow out of the cells of the celery stalk
The stalk becomes limp or rubbery since the cells lose their rigidity as a result of losing water into the environment through osmosis
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
