Which of the following generated osmotic pressure? sodium chloride, glucose and albumin generated osmotic pressure. sodium chloride glucose albumin


Sodium chloride, glucose, and albumin

  • Q:What is osmotic pressure? A:Osmotic pressure is the minimum pressure which needs to be applied to a solution to prevent the inward flow of its pure solvent across a semipermeable membrane.
  • Q:What are the properties of a solute to generate osmotic pressure? A:A solute must be in higher concentration outside the semi-permeable membrane and have a low molecular weight to generate osmotic pressure.
  • Q:Which of the following solutes meet the requirement to generate osmotic pressure? A:Sodium chloride, glucose, and albumin meet the requirement to generate osmotic pressure.
