Question:

Does hydrostatic pressure increase when osmotic pressure increases?

Answer:

Hydrostatic pressure is the pressure exerted by a fluid at equilibrium due to the force of gravity. Osmotic pressure is the pressure applied by a solution to prevent the inward flow of water across a semipermeable membrane. Hydrostatic pressure is independent of osmotic pressure because hydrostatic pressure deals with the force of gravity not water across a membrane.
