The colloid osmotic pressure π is given by the equation π = CRT where C is the concentration in moles/L. Note the similarity between this equation and the ideal gas law. If the concentration of protein in the blood is 1.3 mmole/L, calculate the colloid osmotic pressure in mm Hg.

π = CRT

Temperature is not given. You could use standard temp (298K) or body temperature (37C or 310 K). Using body temperature:π = 1.3X10^-3 mol/L (0.08206 Latm/molK) (310 K)

π = 0.033 atm X 760 mm Hg/atm = 26 mm Hg
