    That's pretty amazing man.
    I'm off to India, to do some work experience there.
    But mostly, I'm going to be chilling so hard, it'll be like I'm frozen. :cool:

    Well, I used to live in NYC, so that kinda helped :p: But apart from that, I just typed in in my case, ''NYC Hospitals'' and just checked up on the volunteering section with e-mails. Most don't reply back, so you have to call. :rolleyes:
    Oh okay I'll try that , my first time going America hopefully , should be interesting. Tell me about it , hospitals here are just ...

    I had to chase them up for months to get my one week placement sorted out , even then the people I was meant to be working with magically dissappeared . Had to look for any walking doctor in the hospital to shadow Guess I improved on my communication skills there eh aha

    Ooh, whereabouts are you going? I may be able to help possibly if it's NYC.

    The only reason I got a placement last year was because my mum knew someone who knew someone who worked there :indiff:

    It's not about what you know, it's about who you know :sad:
    Yeah, and I know no one :p:

    Anyone & everyone doing AQA biology confirm this.

    In the AQA textbook and on the syllabus, in relation to factors affecting transpiration rate, the higher the temp the greater the rate of transpiration, because, and here I quote the textbook, higher temperatures decreases the amount of water air can hold

    However, after a bit of googling, this seems to be false, the opposite to what's actually the case, in fact. Can anyone clear this up? Have you been taught this? It's not a printing error?

    I see.i dont think my college has specific time to send applications.infact my careers advisor told me to send it when i feel is the right time but it better be not the last date or the day before.

    It's only* £65 if you book it for before September I think - I booked mine on the 25th August and only paid £65.

    * Only's not the right word...

    Let's just say it's £15 cheaper :rolleyes:

    The transpiration rate increases as the temp increases because water is evaporating from the leafs measophyll cells at a faster rate than it would at lower temps . this means that the water evaporated must be replaced by water, so water moves by osmosis to the measophyll cells thus increasing the rate of transpiration. < this is a bit rough put its the jist of what opens... hope it helps.

    High temp > water on leaves evaporate > lower water potential outside leaves than inside > water moves out of cells by osmosis > water pull (cohesion tension theory) due to hydrogen bonds in water > water pulled up > increase in rate of transpiration.

    yeh but check the book, specifically the part where it says, "increasing temp decreases amount of water air can hold". This is, apparently, not true.
