Expert Answer:

Factors affecting transpiration:
  • Temperature: Increase in the temperature of air increases the rate of transpiration.
  • Light intensity: On a bright sunny day, stomata open fully, so transpiration is increased. On a cloudy day, stomata open partially, so transpiration is reduced. At night, stomata close; hence, transpiration is greatly reduced or negligible.
  • WindIncreased movement of the air around a plant will result in a higher transpiration rate.
