in which direction does osmotic pressure occur? towards the centre of the cell or towards the wall? give reasons.

Osmotic pressure is the minimum pressure which needs to be applied to a solution to prevent the inward flow of its pure solvent across a semi-permeable membrane.
It exists through the solution and is not directed towards the centre or walls of the cell.
