TRIPLE SCIENCE: Active Transport/Water flow through plants

HideShow resource information
What is the main function of a root hair cell?
To take in water and mineral ions from the soil.
1 of 5
Explain how root hair cells absorb mineral ions from the soil.
The concentration of mineral ions is lower in the soil than the root hair cell. The cells use active transport to absorb the minerals. This requires energy, released from respiration.
