The off lattice topology conserving Monte Carlo algorithms were used to determine the osmotic pressure of ring polymers in solution. Under conditions similar to θ conditions for the linear chains, the ring polymers were modeled as freely jointed chains with point like beads. The equations of state for the ring polymers and the corresponding linear chains were also determined.
