In higher plants, the main and only source of water is soil water. The rain water is soil water. The rain water is the only......

Root Pressure Definition

Root pressure: The total turgor pressure of the cortex tissue as a result of which water enters the xylem vessels through endodermis called root pressure.......

Plasmolysis in Plants

Plasmolysis: Plasmolysis is the process in which cells lose water in a hypertonic solution. Plasmolysis may be defined as the shrinkage of cell protoplasm away......

Turgor Pressure and Wall Pressure in Plants

Turgor pressure (T.P.) and Wall pressure (W.P.) The pressure that is exerted on the cell wall duel to turgidity is called Turgor pressure (T.P.) It......

Diffusion Pressure Deficit

Diffusion pressure deficit: Diffusion pressure expresses the potential aptitude to diffuse from an area of the greatest concentration to an area of lesser concentration. Diffusion......

Diffusion and Turgidity: Definition

Diffusion: When a substance of it’s area of higher concentration diffuses to the area of lower concentration is known as diffusion. It is the net......

Osmotic Pressure

Osmotic pressure: Osmotic pressure can be defined as the pressure required to stop completely the movement of solvent through the semi permeable membrane. Osmotic pressure......

What types of Membranes Found in Plants?

Cell membrane is the thin layer of protein and fat that surrounds the cell, but is inside the cell wall. The cell membrane is semipermeable,......

Solution Definition Comparing with Concentration of Cell Sap

A homogenous mixture of more than one substance in which the attachment of the component can be changed is said to be solution. Types of......

Turgidity: Definition and Importance

Turgidity: A cell in its fully expanded condition is said to be turgid. Thus, turgidity is the stale of a cell in which the cell......

What types of Minerals do Plants Absorbs?

Plants need to have Seventeen minerals for the sake of their healthy growth and development. These seventeen minerals are mentioned below: Carbon (C), hydrogen (H),......

Water and Mineral Salt Absorption Difference in Plants

Absorption Difference between Water and Mineral salt Water Process of the absorption: Mostly through passive absorption. Metabolic absorption: It is not required directly in water......
