Two chambers A and B contain to solutions separated by a semi permeable membrane. Chamber A has a weaker solution and B has a stronger solution of the same solute.

i) Solution of which chamber has lower water potential ?
ii) Solution of which camber has lower pressure potential?
iii) In which direction will osmosis proceed ?
iv) At equilibrium, which chamber will have lower water potential ?
v) What value is shown by such movements ?

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

​i. Chamber B with stronger solution will have lower water potential. This is because it has less concentration of free water molecules.

ii. Chamber B with lower water potential will have low pressure potential (pressure potential is directly proportional to water potential).

iii. Osmosis will proceed from weaker solution side to stronger solution side.
