Are capillary water and xylem sap the same?

Dear student,

They are not same .

Capillary water is  the water that remains in the soil after gravitational water is drained out, that is subject to the laws of capillary movement, and that is in the form of a film around the soil grains.

The xylem transports 
water and soluble mineral nutrients from the roots throughout the plant. It is also used to replace water lost during transpiration and photosynthesis. Xylem sap consists mainly of waterand inorganic ions, although it can contain a number of organic chemicals as well.
