Problem 3E

In answer to the question, “When a plant grows, where does the material come from?” Aristotle hypothesized by logic that all material came from the soil. Do you consider his hypothesis to be correct, incorrect, or partially correct? What experiments do you propose to support your choice?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution Step 1 of 2 The Aristotle hypothesis says that , when the plants grow; all the materials come from soil. This hypothesis is partially correct. As the plants grow, the materials comes not only from the soil; but also from water and air. As during the growth, the plant uses atmospheric air and water to prepare the food. Most of the material in plant is made of carbon which comes from the Carbon dioxide which has been observed by plant during its growth.
