Question: two adjacent cells a and b have different water potentials...

Question details

Two adjacent cells, A and B have different water potentials. Cell A has an osmotic potential of -1.0 MPa and a pressure potential of 0.2 MPa. Cell B has an osmotic potential of -1.2 MPa and a pressure potential of 1.2 MPa.

1. Which direction will water tend to move in this system?

2. What will the equilibrium water potentials and pressure potentials be for cell A and cell B? (Assume no volume change)
