What si wall and turgor pressure?
Asked by | 7th Jun, 2008, 01:23: PM
'Turgor pressure' or turgidity is the main pressure of the cell contents against the cell wall in plant cells and bacteria cells. It is determined by the water content of the vacuole, resulting from osmotic pressure.
Wall pressure is the pressure that a cell wall exerts against the turgor of the cell contents. Wall pressure is equal and opposite to the turgor potential
