1 Answer

Solution :-

(1) Water potential helps to understand the concept of water movement. Water potential is denoted by the symbol ψ (psi).

(2) Water molecules are rapid and constant in liquid and gaseous state due to this it possesses kinetic energy.

(3) Water potential is directly proportional to both kinetic energy and concentration of water, hence when there is high water concentration the water potential and kinetic energy will be high.

(4) Pure water has a high concentration of water therefore its water potential is maximum.
