Unit VIII Homework Plant Transpiration Experiment Name Professor Course Assignment Tittle Date Questions 1 – 10 are short answer questions and should be answered in two to three words or one to two complete sentences. Total: 40 points What are the three different variables that you tested? (4 points) In this experiment we tested three different variable namely heat light and wind. In this experiment we tested three different variable namely heat light and wind. State your question. (4 points) Does exposing a plant to different environmental conditions affect the rate of transpiration? Does exposing a plant to different environmental conditions affect the rate of transpiration? State your hypothesis. (4 points) In this experiment all plants will lose water through transpiration. Notably those plants exposed to both heat and through the fan will be affected and hence will lose large amounts of water due to the influence by environmental The commonly known factors include light wind and temperatures. These factors either slow the process or fasten the transpiration process. For example high temperatures increase the evaporation rate and hence increase the rate of transpiration. On the other hand light affects plant transpiration in the essence that it stimulates plants and therefore interfering with the process of transpiration. Also wind being the highest causer of transpiration rate affects the transpiration rate by causing different water gradients. Furthermore the process of transpiration is fully dependent on the amount of water in the soil. Plant transpiration begins from the moment water is absorbed from the soil via the roots and his pumped through the stems to the leaves where most transpiration process takes place. Finally transpiration is not only beneficial to plants by bringing about the cooling effect but also assist in growth and development by absorbing nutrients from the soil. [...]
