Experiment 3: TranspirationPost-Lab Questions1.Was the water volume in the test tubes more or less after the two-hour period than it wasat the beginning of the experiment? If there was a difference in either of the test tubes,what caused this change?2.Did this amount vary between the test tube with the fan blowing on it and the test tubewithout the fan? If there was a difference, what caused this change?3.What does the sodium polyacrylate represent in real plants?4.What process caused the sodium polyacrylate-filled dialysis tubing to become filled withwater?5.Explain how water potential plays a part in transpiration. Draw a diagram of the pathwater takes in this experiment.6.How does the fan affect the volume of water left in the beaker after one hour?
