Water Relations Of Plants

Water Potential (qp) The chemical potential of water is called water potential. The total kinetic energy of the molecules is called water potential. The chemical potential of water depends on the number of water molecules. Thus it is expressed as energy per mole of water molecule. The chemical potential of pure water is taken as zero. The kinetic energy of ...

Diffusion And Factors affecting the diffusion

Diffusion And Factors affecting the diffusion Diffusion The movement of molecules from higher concentration to lower concentration is called diffusion. Diffusion occurs down the concentration gradient. It is a spontaneous process. Diffusion continues till dynamic equilibrium is achieved. It follows laws of thermodynamics. But it is a very slow process. The rate and the direction of diffusion of different substances ...

DEVELOPMENT STUDY OF ENDOSPERM

DEVELOPMENT STUDY OF ENDOSPERM DEVELOPMENT STUDY OF ENDOSPERM The primary endosperm nucleus divides repeatedly. It forms polyploidy nutritive tissue called endosperm. There are two types of seeds for storage of food: b)  Endospertnic or albuminous seed: The endosperm supply food to the 0.–weloping embryo. Such seeds are called endospermic seeds. in plants like corn, wheat, the endosperm tissue is present ...
