The water potential () is equal to osmotic potential pressure potential (). Osmotic potential is always in negative value. The water potential is the chemical potential of water, which is equivalant to DPD with negative sign. Therefore, water potential () of cell A is Water potential of cell B () is Since, water moves from higher water potential to lower potential, |
