Assume that a cell with an osmotic potential of -0.2 MPa and a pressure potential of 0.08 MPa is in equilibrium with an external sugar solution in an open container at 20 degrees celsius.
1. What would you estimate the molar concentration in the external solution to be?
2. Imagine that photosynthetic production doubles the total solute concentration inside the cell. What would be the values of the osmotic, pressure, and water potentials of the cell after it has come back into equilibration?
