What is Osmotic Pressure??
The volume difference betweenthe two
solution at the equilibrium generates a
pressure called the osmotic pressure.
The pressure of osmotic is defined as a
pressure given to prevent osmosis,
which is to prevent the flow of solvent
The Calculation of the Osmotic
According to Van’t Hoff, the osmotic
pressure of solution can be calculated by
using ideal gas equation:
What is the osmotic pressure of a solution at
temperature of 27oC, if 3,6 gram of glucose (Mr = 180
gram/mole) is dissolved in water until the volume
reaches 200 mL? (the pressure in atm)
200 mL= 0,2 L and 27oC= 27+273 K= 300 K
In dialysis events called osmosis.
where there is transfer of small
molecules such as urea through a
semipermeable membrane and into
another liquid, and then discarded.
why did happen
the difference between the concentration
of the solution contained in the blood with
a solution that is in the dialysis apparatus
causing osmosis events
Intravenous fluids should
be isotonic with
intracellular fluid to
prevent osmosis, either
into or out of cells.
Thus, blood cells are not
