The experiment with light probably should have increased the rate of transpiration but the light was probably too hot for the plant causing the stoma’s to close and decreasing the rate of transpiration. Wind – See next question. 3. Wind was the greatest factor in transpiration. It caused the water to be sucked through the plant at the fastest rate of 3.4×10-³. This was the greatest factor because wind actually dries the atmosphere as well as the surface area of the leaves. When the water level is lower outside of the plant, the water is pulled through the plant and into the atmosphere. 4.
