can someone explain the biological examples for equilibrium of ATP hydrolysis and osmotic pressure please!

I am also not sure, but I do know that ATP hydrolysis is an exergonic reaction, which has a negative delta G. Also, Gibbs Free Energy is used in most biochemical reactions because they occur at constant temp and pressure

Since ATP hydrolysis is an exothermic and exergonic reaction, it can be coupled to endothermic reactions to provide the energy needed for the endergonic reaction to be completed in processes like cellular respiration. Because of energy coupling, it can also allow coupke reactions to have an overall negative Gibbs free energy meaning free energy is released.
