​Q57. If the OP of any osmotic system is 35 atm and its turgor pressure 9 units. Find out water potential present in the osmotic system :-

Dear student,    
​Please find below the solution to the asked query                                                               

Osmotic potential= solute potential= -35 atm (negative because presence of solute makes the solution to have less water than pure water would have had)

Turgor Potential= pressure potential= +9 units

As we know,
Water potential = Osmotic potential + pressure potential
                         = -35 + 9
                         = -26 units
