Do I understand correctly that:

  • When albumin binds non-water molecules to itself, the concentration of non-water molecules decreases, thus the osmotic pressure decreases;

  • When albumin carries water, the concentration of unbound water decreases and thus the osmotic pressure increases.

Or does the albumin regulate the osmotic pressure differently?
