Lab #8: Plant Water Relations The purpose of this experiment is to understand the movement of water in a plant, and several processes are going to be studied. Diffusion: The method by which CO2 enters, and water leaves, plant leaves. Movement from a higher concentration gradient to a lower concentration gradient. Osmosis: Flow of solvent through semipermeable membrane in response to difference in

Unformatted text preview: solution concentrations. The efficiency of the two processes above are determined by water potential- the potential energy of water which is determined by solute concentration and pressure. Water flux into plant cells are going to be tested by placing potatoes in different solute concentrations of water. The transpiration of water is in plants going to be tested with a potometer....
