Absorption and transport in plants

Absorption and transport in plants

IN THIS EXPERIMENT YOU WILL…

Conduct a series of 3 experiments. The first deals with the spontaneous movement of water trough capillaryCapillary action is the movement of liquid along a surface of a solid caused by the attraction of molecules of the liquid to the molecules of the solid tubes of various diameters. The second deals with the root pressureRoot pressure is the transverse osmotic pressure within the cells of a root system that causes sap to rise through a plant stem to the leaves applied to absorb water and the third looks at the pathway water will take to reach the source (leaf or flower).

It is important to look at the way water moves in a plant. It is also important to know the various ways in the plant substances move because as like with animal tissue, substances vary in the way they move from their point of absorption to where they are used.
