About This Quiz & Worksheet

With this quiz and worksheet we'll measure your understanding of what factors influence water in plants. Our short quiz, consisting of multiple-choice questions, deal with calculating water potential and its relationship to plants.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

For this quiz, the goal is to see if you know:

  • The behavior of natural properties of water in plants
  • How water behaves in terms of water potential
  • The water potential equation
  • Why osmotic potential is lower inside of cells than in natural bodies of water
  • What happens when pressure decreases in a cell

Skills Practiced

You'll practice these skills with this quiz:

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most important information from the related water potential lesson
  • Critical thinking - figure out why osmotic potential is higher in natural bodies of water than it is inside of cells
  • Information recall - remember when pressure decreases in a cell

Additional Learning

Whether you struggled with this quiz or you breezed through the assessment with no trouble at all, our lesson, How Solutes And Pressure Affect Water Potential in Plants is a great way to learn more about the topic. In the lesson you'll learn things like:

  • How water is transported throughout a plant
  • What capillary potential is
  • How gravitational potential impacts the water potential in a plant
  • What happens to a cell if pressure is increased
