How does a leaf help a plant grow?
A leaf can help a plant grow because a leaf has something called photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process in which plants use sunlight to synthesize foods from carbon dioxide and water. So pretty much a leaf is one way a plant can grow, live, and depend on. Of course it needs more than one to live. ...

How does the loss of leaves help a plant survive winter or long periods without rain?
the loss of leaves help a plant survive winter becuase the plant doesnt have to lose and give water much more ...
Describe how the structure of a leaf allows a plant to control the materials involved in photosynthesis?
Idk:) the shape of a leaf determines how much water the leaf might loose because of evaporation and how much sun light the leaf would allow to pass through it <----- I think🌚 ...

What part of a leaf does light strike for photosynthesis to begin?
Leaves are the part of the plant specifically designed for photosynthesis. As such, as much of the surface of the leaf as possible is used for photosynthesis. ...
Will a plant still produce oxygen if you pluck off a leaf?
Leaves do most of the oxygen producing. As long as the plant still has other leaves to process photosynthesis with, plucking one leaf won't do too much harm. ...
How might the distribution of leaf pigments differ in a leaf that is dark green in color vs one which is lighter green?
A darker green plant means that it has more chlorophyll to photosynthesise. A brighter leaf colour on the other hand shows that, that plant does not require so much chlorophyll to photosynthesise. ...

How does the brittle bush adapt to survive in the desert?
in general, brittle bushes in the desert have deep roots to absorb as much water as possible (or is that cacti?) anyway, they have tightly curled leaves that reduce moisture loss. Leaf pubescence (leaf hairs) grow on brittle brush. These leaf hairs reduce the amount of light the plant is able to absorb, therefore limiting the rate of photosynthetic activity. ...

What force causes a leaf to fall more slowly than a penny?
We know that air resistance (or atmospheric drag) is what causes a leaf to fall more slowly than a penny. A large leaf that weighs a much as a penny has a much greater surface area than the penny, and all this surface area means that the leaf has more drag. Though the leaf and penny will be accelerated by the same amount of force (because they have the same mass), the leaf will present all that surface area to the...

What effects happen if the plant can not get enough iron?
If the plant does not have enough iron the plant will have died either or the plant should not have too much or too little it should be in the middle in order to survive. If too much it will affect the chlorophyll and the plant will suffer in very little amount of time! ...

Why does a plant in a strong salty solution die?
Because the plant loses water through osmosis. osmosis is the movement of fluids from an area of high water concentration (there are lots of water molecules) to an area of low water concentration (there are fewer water molecules). this means that because there is more water in the plant than in the solution the plant will lose its water into the solution via osmosis. the plant now has much less water than it needs to survive so will die in the same...

Would a house plant survive if it were only given water by spraying the leaves with a mist?
Generally, no it would not be able to survive solely on misted water. Unless the ground around the base of the plant is misted much more often, the plant would most likely shrivel up, and die. ...
