What is Osmotic Pressure?
Asked by | 10th Sep, 2008, 07:15: PM
The pressure required to prevent solvent from passing through a semipermeable membrane from a region of higher concentration of solute to a region of lower concentration of solute is called osmotic pressure. It is also a measure of the tendency of a solution to gain water by osmosis when separated by a membrane from pure water.
