thank you!! all understood
I've been trying to figure that out, too. So, I think that since since the transpiration rate is minimum, water is not sucked up by transpiration pull force that fast so more water liger in the xylem vessel with the adhesive forces so pressure is applied on the walls of the xylem and the diameter increases. Water should be sucked as a continuous column that can't be broken, water is always present in the xylem. so I think that that since no transpiration occurs, no difference in pressure is maintained and water stays in the xylem.
Hope I helped.
when transpiration occurs, the cohesive and adhesive forces pull the xylem vessels in thus decreasing the diameter of the trunk. when transpiration is minimum this tension is released so diameter increases.
o/n 2012 varient 11 q-33,36,and 40......... SOMEBODY PLZZ HELP
How to solve this
most prolly its A because the water potential of cell sap must be less than the one in soil to maintain a gradient so that ions and minerals can easily move into cell sap.Hence -60 would be ideal. But just recheck the answer i m kinda confused because it can be C too but-20kpa means water would move out of cell to soil
