Today in Science we were learning about plants and how roots work. We carried out an investigation on how water is absorbed through the root hairs. We learnt, the more root hairs a root has, the more water will be absorbed at a quicker rate. Allowing the water and nutrients to travel to the rest of the plant. We used different thicknesses of string to represent the roots and held this to the waters surface for it to absorb the water.
