hi

i have a few questions

1)osmotic pressure
Basically, i got that its the pressure opposing osmois. can you explain it to me ?

2)hydroltic pressure

Im thinking that its the pressure that builds up due to a higher concentration. Must be like potiential energy.

1. Rupert

I have that same question

My teacher said hyrostatic pressure is when a pressure is exerted on a membrane due to an increase in volume. This cause water to move from a low con to a high con

and for osmotic he said the opposite. Its the force that cause water to move into a cell. Its due to a high solute con.

thanks Jim
