The osmotic pressure will decrease. The osmotic pressure is decreased because the water is leaving the cell.

Why will water boil at 96 Celsius?

it may be because of decrease in can also be due to many other factors we define the boiling point as the temperature in which the molecules of the liquid leaves the surface and its pressure equals the atmospheric pressure so if we reduce pressure we can reduce boiling point

How does transpiration help in transport of water and minerals in plants?

As we know, transpiration means the evaporation of water vapour from the leaves etc. As the water evaporates, there is a decrease in pressure in the plant which in turn helps the root to absorb water and as the water transpires the water in the root is sucked upward by pressure and hence is transported to each and every part of plant. As the minerals are dissolved in the water (in small quantities) they are also transported through the same medium. this saves energy for the plant.

Compare the formation of coal and petroleum?

To produce coal, trees, leaves, grass etc over time become buried under the earths surface. As they go furthur down into the earth temperature and pressure increase transforming organic matter into brown coal. Pteroleum deposits require small water basins and large amounts of phytoplankton and biota in the small reserves of water. bio material dies and settles in the bottom. This organic material over time is also buried deep within the earth through geological processes, and increased temperature and pressure again change the material into petroleum.

I think that it increases because the plant needs to make food and the leaves are in charge of that. So yup!

Because net inward pressure in venular capillary ends is less than net outward pressure of the arteriolar ends of capillaries?

The net inward pressure in venular capillary ends is less than the net outward pressure in arteriolar ends of capillaries because of two main factors: the hydrostatic pressure and the osmotic pressure. In venular capillary ends, the hydrostatic pressure is reduced due to the resistance of the venous system, while the osmotic pressure remains constant. In arteriolar ends, the hydrostatic pressure is higher due to the force exerted by the heart and the osmotic pressure remains the same. As a result, more fluid is filtered out of the capillaries at the arteriolar ends than is reabsorbed at the venular ends.

How does the reabsorption of sodium and water from the renal tubules increase blood volume?

When blood volume is low, sodium reabsorption in the kidneys is stimulated. The increased sodium increases osmotic pressure, causing water to be reabsorbed with the sodium. The reabsorbed water is added to the plasma, thus increasing blood volume.

How does a drop in the blood pressure affect urine output?

As blood leaves the vascular system pressure drops, leading to a decrease in perfusion to the kidneys. This causes a decrease in urine production. Put simply fluid is going in to some space in your body instead of leaving through the urine.

Why do plants acquire more leaves during summer?

Plants acquire more leaves during summer to decrease the rate of transpiration and increase the rate of photosynthesis to store food and water to save themselves from dehydration and dryness.

Would the water potential of a potato cell decrease or increase when it is allowed to dehydrate?

decreases it - no water then no water potential.

How does water enter leaves?

Water enters the root cells by osmosis and enters into the xylem. The pressure of water entering the xylem creates osmotic pressure, pushing the column of water up through the stem. Water evaporating on the surface of the leaf cells pulls on other molecules and pulls the column of water up the plant and into the leaves.
