Describe water potential. What are its components? How do we represent their relation?

Dear student.

The potential energy possessed by water molecule which helps in the movement of water with reference to pure water is called water potential. It is represented by the symbol Ψ.  The equation of water potential is represented as  Ψ Ψ  p +   Ψ  
where, Ψ  = pressure potential
Ψ  = solute  potential    

Component of water potential is Matric potential, osmotic potential, gravitational potential, pressure potential, etc
