In the second topic of the chapter on Transpiration, the content says that with increase in velocity of wind, there is an increase in rate of transpiration while high humidity reduces transpiration. The solution to the first question of the topic test, on the other hand, says that high humidity increases transpiration while velocity of wind is inversely proportional to the rate of transpiration. Which is correct?

Dear Student,

The high velocity of wind accelerates evaporation from the leaf surface, so it increases transpiration.
High humidity reverses the process.
So, the first answer that you mentioned, is correct.
