Sažetak:
A thermodynamic state of solvent and solution separated with an elastic semipermeable membrane, in the box with a fixed volume, is considered. It is shown that the minimum value of free energy is accompanied by the compression of the solution and tension of the solvent [1-4]caused by the transfer of solvent molecules into compartment with solution . The tensile state of the solvent is described in terms of negative pressure. Due to the elastic properties of membrane the difference of pressure between compartments is less than osmotic pressure calculated with van't Hoff equation. However, it is still enough high to uptake water in tall trees. It is proposed that osmosis at constant volume could be responsible for the water uptake in tall trees. Using plausible arguments it is shown that embolism is followed with refilling in this process [5-7]. In other words embolism repair is possible in osmotic process under constant volume.
