Solve & explain briefly

Solve & explain briefly If a cell A has DPD of 4 bars, it is connected to cell B, C, D whose OP and TP are 4 and 4, 10 and 5, 10 and 3 bars. The flow of water will be C toA, B, D (2) AtoD, B, c ( a ) Ato B, C, D

Dear student

Please refer the solution below for the said query

Diffusion pressure deficit (DPD) is the suction pressure and determines the tendency of water to move into the cell from outside.

For Cell A DPD = 4 Bars
For Cell B DPD = 4-4 = 0 Bars
For Cell C DPD = 10-5 = 5 Bars
For Cell D DPD = 10-3 = 7 Bars

The cell with more water has lower DPD and the cell with less water has higher DPD.

The DPD of Cell B is less, hence it contains more water than A, C and D. Hence, water will move from B to A, C and D

​​​​​​​Hence, correct option is (1). 

Hope this information clears your doubt about the topic.
