Water potential determines the direction of the flow of water in any system. i.e. water moves from high water potential to low water potential. The water potential helps to understand how the movement of water takes place into the root and within the plants. As a result of the formation of  a water potential gradient by which water will move by the process of osmosis from the soil to the root cell where the water potential is low.
