Unformatted text preview: he”; Biology 131, Examination 2, Spring, 2003 Name (Printed) r W Signature ———————___.________________ Student Number Enter your name and student number in the space above and also on the following pages. Answer the questions in the space provided; do not write on the back. Remember that your answers will be graded by a human being, not a machine, so legible writing is essential. If your handwriting is poor, print your answers. Be sure to use appropriate units. Organize your answer so that the grader can easily follow your logic. You will lose points for poorly organized answers that include much irrelevant material. 1.00) A. (5) Suppose that the meniscus of water in a xylem tube has a radius of curvature of 10 pm. How far up the xylem tube, in meters, can water move by capillarity? Everything you need to solve this problem can be found on the first age. ’9‘“=‘°"°““ Tit-1"“ 1‘ “*"fzitfp‘m 2—14xio‘3ma e. lo. 30,014 m PCL To move We’re/L up iOM refu‘u'u'D-I "1911/ “kW-.4. o-o'ufmp‘i mmovfc l-Lil'“ l0“ awn?“ :1]. Lira —o.thc.. B. (5) Capillarity in the xylem elements cannot provide the pressure required to raise water to the top of even modestly tall plants. Explain in a few sentences how plants manage to get water to the top. Be sure to say explicitly why xylem capillarity is inadequate and what condition in what part of the plant overcomes the restriction of xylem capillarity. Illustrate your explanation by calculating the radius of curvature of water required to generate the pressure necessary to lift water to the top of a 10 m tree. You MUST organize your answer so that it can be readily graded, so think before you start to write! )J‘L/W " J ‘H " t4 +o|t¥+mm Nlm. W Mai-3 . +0 wackW-‘W w C; ' Smut-wk. m h n / lu‘o’L—Q o‘er/Wu.

Be sure to show the main anatomical feature that relates to its function. Describe the mechanism by which these cells take up K", Cl', and H30. You will need to mention primary transport, secondary transport, protons, Vm and its generation, and water potential in your answer. Make your diagram of the cell large enough to show the various transport mechanisms and add enough words to explain the processes.

Nitrogen fixing bacteria that colonize the roots of legumes convert N; to NH}, which is toxic to plants. Because root hairs acidify the water around them, the NH; in the soil is converted to NHJ’: which does not easily cross cell membranes. Other bacteria in the soil then convert the NH? to nitrate, NOJ', which is not toxic to plants and is the form in which nitrogen is taken up by plants. Because NO; is also an ion, it will not cross the membrane readily and in addition, its entry is opposed by the membrane potential. What mechanism do you think the root hairs use to accumulate N03“? It may save words to use adiagram. [2.0-8- Lui-r M914 Mast. m Do not write below this line ...
