Unformatted text preview: and the process of adding the solutes to the cell to lower water potential is an ATP dependent process a.i.2. The process of H 2 O loss from the leaf lowers the Psi of the leaf cells. a.i.2.a. Tension develops in the water column at the mesophyll cell surface lowering water potential along with the loss of H 2 O II. Growing areas of the plant are places where low water potential is seen and water can be moving into these growing plants as well....
