FAQs on Class 7 Science Chapter 1 Question Answers - Nutrition in Plants

1. What is the process of nutrition in plants?
Ans. Nutrition in plants involves the absorption of water and minerals through the roots, photosynthesis in the leaves to produce food, and transportation of nutrients throughout the plant via the vascular system.
2. How do plants obtain nutrients from the soil?
Ans. Plants absorb nutrients from the soil through their root system. The roots take up water and minerals from the soil, which are then transported to other parts of the plant for growth and metabolism.
3. What is the role of chlorophyll in plant nutrition?
Ans. Chlorophyll is a pigment in plant cells that absorbs sunlight to facilitate photosynthesis. It helps convert light energy into chemical energy, which is used by plants to produce glucose and oxygen.
4. How do plants use the nutrients obtained through photosynthesis?
Ans. The nutrients produced through photosynthesis, such as glucose, are used by plants as a source of energy for growth, reproduction, and overall metabolism. Some glucose is stored as starch for later use.
5. Why is photosynthesis important for plant nutrition?
Ans. Photosynthesis is crucial for plant nutrition as it is the process by which plants produce their own food. It allows plants to convert sunlight into energy, which is essential for their survival and growth.
