Can Solutions With Same Concentration Of Different Solutes Have Different Osmotic Pressures

Can Solutions With Same Concentration Of Different Solutes Have Different Osmotic Pressures


  • 14 Jan, 2012

    The osmotic pressure of a solution does not depend on the nature of the solute, it depends only on the quantity of molecules (particles) in relation to the total solution volume. Solutions with same concentration of particles even containing different solutes exert same osmotic pressure.Even when the solution contains a mixture of different solutes its osmotic pressure depends only on its total particle concentration regardless the nature of the solutes.
