Transpiration in plants

Four main factors affect transpiration rate:

1. Light- the lighter it is the faster the transpiration rate. This is because the stomata open when it gets light. When it is dark the stomata are usuall closed, so there's little transpiration.

2.Temperature - the higher the temperature the faster the transpiration rate. Warmer water molecules have more energy so they evaporate from…
