Osmotic Pressure Is a Property of Solutions Related to Other Colligative Properties. Osmotic pressure is closely related to some other properties of solutions, the colligative properties. These include the freezing point depression, the boiling point elevation, and the vapor pressure depression, all caused by dissolving solutes in a solution. Aug 24,  · The pressure required to achieve osmotic equilibrium is known as the osmotic pressure. Note that the osmotic pressure is the pressure required to stop osmosis, not to sustain it. Osmotic pressure is the pressure required to stop osmotic flow It is common usage to say that a solution “has” an osmotic pressure of "x atmospheres". The osmotic pressure is then the pressure exerted by the column of a solution of height h where ρ is the density of the solution and g is the gravitational acceleration. $\Pi = \rho gh$ Figure $$\PageIndex{2}$$ An osmometer measures osmotic flow by determining the pressure needed to just stop osmosis. In this set up, a solution is placed. Jun 15,  · Osmotic pressure is the main cause of support in many plants. When a plant cell is in a hypotonic environment, the osmotic entry of water raises the turgor pressure exerted against the cell wall until the pressure prevents more water from coming into the .
