amount of water loss, and could be harmful to the plant. Further experimentation could include performing the experiment with higher and lower temperatures than what were used in this experiment. More trials would better ensure the accuracy of the experiment. Discussion Questions Page S137 1. The water will go into the plant.

2. The salt causes the water inside the plant want to move outside the plant, because that is where there is less free water. 3. - 4. One should transplant the tree in the winter, because it is in a dormant state. The tree will not be trying to get water and minerals from the ground. If it is transplanted during the summer the tree will be trying to photosynthesize, and transplanting it would put stress on the tree. S138 a. Trace the leaf on to grid paper, then count the squares on the grid. The squares on the grid we used were 3.5 mm², so multiply the number of squares that make up the leaf by 3.5 to express the surface area in cm², or divide that answer by 100 to express it in mm². b. Figure out the surface area of one leaf, then multiply it by the number of leaves on the plant. Assume that the plant’s leaves are approximately the same size. c. The more stomata per mm², the greater the rate of transpiration. d. Yes, they are directly related.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
