Basic Physical Concepts of Plant Water Relation

The main idea of this section is to explain the concept of chemical potential of water or water potential and the effect of various factors that change its value in plant cell and its immediate environment.

The flow of water depends upon the gradient of water potential in soil-plant-atmospheric system. The understanding of this section requires some knowledge of certain basic physical concepts such as diffusion, osmosis, imbibitions, and chemical potential.
