Root hair absorbed most of the water.

Because most of the water get absorbed by the root hairs.

Yes, roots contain vascular bundles i.e. Xylem and Phloem in this Xylem conducts water.

Most of the minerals is got from the soil and the obvious way to absorb them from the soil is by the root hairs. This occurs with help of diffusion where are the soil has more concentration of minerals compared to the root hairs. With the help of transpirational pull the mineral is utilised by other parts.

Root hair is the vital organ of root system playing an important role in absorption.

Root hair absorbs the water and transfers to xylem. So I can say, that the root hair is the most important part of the plant.

Yes, plants absorb most part of water needed by their root hairs because of their hydrophilic nature.

Sin said:   9 years ago
Root hairs are primary site for absorption.

What is embryonic zone?

Vaishu said:   1 decade ago
In general, root hairs are made up of cellulose and cellulose is hydrophilic in nature. Hydrophilic means a compound which has attraction of water. So root hair absorb water.
