Importance of Osmosis and Osmotic Pressure. Lecture 1 12-3-2012. Osmotic pressure. The pressure of a solution which just stops osmosis is the osmotic pressure Osmotic pressure is the excess of the pressure required to equalize water activities in the two compartments
Importance of Osmosis and Osmotic Pressure
OsM of 1 M NaCl = 2 OsM
So, two solutions can have the same molarity but different osmolarities.
To prevent a build up of tissue fluid surrounding the cells in the tissue, the lymphatic system plays a part in the transport of tissue fluid. Tissue fluid can pass into the surrounding lymph vessels, and eventually ends up rejoining the blood
