Question: 2 a semipermeable membrane separates a chamber containing water to...

Question details

2. A semipermeable membrane separates a chamber containing water to a salt-balanced protein solution dissolved in water. Both solutions are at 37°C. The composition of the salt balanced protein solution is given in the table below. The membrane contains pores equivalent in size to a spherical molecule with a molecular weight of 100 g/mol (also defined as the molecular weight cutoff (MWCO Assuming that the ions and proteins form an ideal solution, what is the osmotic pressure? Ion/Protein Concentration MW mo 58 NaCl CaCl2 glucose Albumin 8.5 2.0 50 40 180 69,000
