Interpretation: The difference in osmotic pressure at the normal body temperature between the blood plasma of a diabetic patient and healthy adult has to be calculated and such patient frequently feels dehydrated to be explained.
Osmosis is a process by which solvent molecules have a tendency to pass via semi permeable membrane from low concentrated solution to high concentrated solution.
Osmotic pressure is the pressure that is needed to stop osmosis. Osmotic pressure of the solution is directly proportional to the concentration of the solution. We can calculate osmotic pressure by using this formula is given by,
i- Von’t Hoff’s factor
M – Molarity of the solution (mol/L)
R- Ideal gas constant (0.08206 )
T-Temperature in Kelvin
