Connecting Concepts: Plant Biology/Water Relations 1: Water Potential Equation

Students investigate water potential in various, real-life situations. They review components of the water potential equation with the help of “Professor Waterman”. Students will: 1) get descriptions of solute and pressure potential and the water potential equation; 2) learn how to predict the movement of water under various conditions; and 3) gain experience using the water potential equation, and gain familiarity with the associated terminology.
