If Turgor Pressure Becomes Equal To The Wall Pressure Then Biology Question

If turgor pressure becomes equal to the wall pressure, then


(a) water leaves the cell
(b) water enters the cell
(c) no exchanges of water takes place
(d) solute goes from the cell into water.

Correct Answer:

no exchanges of water takes place


When water enters the cell of a plant cytoplasm and exerts an outward pressure then that pressure is called turgor pressure. Cell wall is rigid and flexible therefore exerts an equal and opposite wall pressure against the expanding protoplasm. Thus turgor pressure becomes equal to the wall pressure when no exchange of water takes place and equilibrium is established.
