specification.
6. What are 5 features of the capillaries that relate it to its function? (5)
Answer in spoiler
Spoiler:
Show
Numerous and highly branched, so large surface area for diffusion (1) Narrow diameter, so they can permeate all tissues & no tissue is far from a capillary (2) Narrow lumen, so red blood cells are pushed up against the wall, making a short path for diffusion (3) Thin epithelium gives short path for diffusion (4) Holes in endothelium allow white blood cells to pass through to fight infections (5)

tell me all you know about water transport and I will tell you if it is enough...

Well this is what's in the CGP guide:

The symplast pathway - goes through the living parts of the cells - the cytoplasm.
The cytoplasm of neighbouring cells connect through plasmodesmata. (small gapps in the cell walls).

The apoplast pathway - goes through the non living parts of the root - the cell walls.
The walls are very absorbet and water can simply diffuse through them, as well as passing through the spaces between them.

- When water in the apoplast pathway gets to the endodermis cells though, its path is blocked by a waxy strip in the cell walls, called the Casparian strip. Now the water has to take the synplast pathway.

- This is useful, because it means the water has to go through the cell membrane.
Cell membranes are able to control whether or not substances in water get through.

- One past this barrier, the water moves into the xylem.

Both pathways are used, but the main one is apoplast pathway because it provides the least resistance.

(I just want to know if this is enough for the symplast/apoplast crap.) Thanks.
