  • Water Transport
    • How Does Water Enter?
      • Through the root hair cells
      • When water enters it passes through the root cortex and the endodermis to reach the xylem
      • The roots have a high wp because they are surrounded by water rich soil. The leaves have a low wp which creates a wp gradient which keeps water from flowing from the roots to the leaf
        • When water enters it passes through the root cortex and the endodermis to reach the xylem
