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
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
