Why is solute potential always negative. Explain yw = ys + yp

Answers (1)

Ans.

The water potential is reduced when a solute dissolves in water as the concentration decreases, in comparison to pure water. The solute potential is the measure and indication of the decrease in water pollution caused by the solute. Water potential is always negatively affected by the solute potential and thus making the solute potential also negative.
At standard normal temperature, the solute potential and water potential are always equal. If the is increased, the solute's water potential rises and is denoted by the equation of.

y _w = y_s + y_ p

The suffix of w is the water potential while z is the solute potential and p is the pressure respectively.
