Chapter 37 - Transport in Plants - Figure 37.17 - Data Analysis: 1

Answer

Since the phloem can move materials at 50-100 cm/hour, 25 cm of transport should take 0.25-0.5 hours.

Work Step by Step

See p. 770 for these rates. Then, divide 25 cm by 50 cm/hour and 100 cm/hour to get the high and low estimates for the time needed for transport.
