After water enters a vascular plant through its root system, transpiration is the process by which water molecules then move up the xylem tubes. Through transpiration, a water molecule evaporates out of the top of a plant through an open stoma, and the water column below this water molecule is then pulled upwards.

Which of the following properties of water contribute to the movement of water through vascular plants by transpiration?

Select ALL that apply.

A

Neutral pH of water.

B

Cohesion of water molecules to each other.

C

High specific heat of water.

D

Adhesion of water molecules to other molecules.

E

Low density of water as it crystallizes.
