Chaney solutes in the soil solution while any pressure component contributes to the pressure potential. The i// soil is a summation of the component potentials and can be written ψ 8 θΠ = i//m + ψ5 + ψ ρ . It is expressed in terms of Gibbs free energy and most often in units of bars. Pure free water has a potential of 0 bars. Since the free energy of water in soil is less than that of pure free water, soils typically have a negative potential (Rose, 1966; Slatyer, 1967). Water tends to move from a zone of less negative (high free energy) to one of more negative (low free energy) water potential and this is true for movement of water within the soil as well as movement from soil into roots.
