Transport in Plants
Water transpired is the water absorbed. Give suitable explanation.
Solution: All plants continuously absorb water through their roots. This water is conducted upwards through the stem and is distributed to all the aerial parts including the leaves. Only a small quantity of this water (about 2%) is used by the plant in photosynthesis and other activities. The rest of it is almost lost to the atmosphere as water vapour as a result of transpiration. Therefore, water transpired is water absorbed.
