How a Root Hair Cell Is Adapted to Its Function?

Answer

The root hair cells are adapted to their functions by having a large surface area. They are also long in shape, have many mitochondria in them and are very many in numbers. These properties allow the cells to be faster in transportation as well as absorption.

Root hair cells are adapted to their function, which is to speed up the rate of diffusion of vital plant nutrients, in three ways. Basically, they are long for faster and easy transport, many in number and have a large surface area to promote efficient absorption and contain hundreds of mitochondria which produce the energy for transport.
