why does osmotic pressure occur?

Expert Answer:

Osmotic pressure is the pressure that would be required to stop water from diffusing through a barrier by osmosis. Osmotic pressure occurs when two solutions with different concentrations are separated by a membrane. Osmotic pressure causes water to move into the solution with the highest concentration. The higher the concentration or the temperature of a solution, the higher the osmotic pressure.
