# Osmotic pressure of the ocean (salinity)

Value | 30 Atm |
---|---|

Organism | Biosphere |

Reference | eBook Marine Biology, 1971 Publisher Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, U. Zimmermann and E. Steudle, Effects of potassium concentration and osmotic pressure of sea water on the cell-turgor pressure of Chaetomorpha linum, pp. 132-137 Table - link |

Method | Value given in table link is p=3.125 MPa. 1Atm=101325Pa therefore p=30.84 Atm |

Comments | The general equation is: p = iMRT where i is the van 't Hoff factor, M is the molarity, R the gas constant and T absolute temperature. |
