Flashcards in Transport In Cells Deck (11):
1

What is transpiration

The movement of water throughout a plant

2

What is translocation

The movement of sugars throughout a plant

3

What is the first step of transpiration

Root hair cells take water in by osmosis

4

What is the second stage of transpiration

Water molecules diffuse into the xylem through osmosis

5

What Is the third step of transpiration

The water travels up the xylem into the palicide cells in the leafs

6

What is the last step of transpiration

The water is used in photosynthesis to greater glucose

7

What happens in translocation

Glucose from photosynthesis changes into different sugars and is either stores as energy or used for growth

8

What 4 factors contribute to photosynthesis

Light intensity
Temperature
Air movement
CO2 availability

9

How does oxygen leave the plant

Diffuses through the stomata

10

What is the structure of the xylem

Narrow, hollow, elongated and and very hard

11

What cells are in the phloem

Companion cells
