Why and how does water enter continuously into the root xylem?

AcademicBiologyNCERTClass 10

Xylem tracheids and xylem vessels are water-conducting tissues (vascular tissue) as part of the xylem present in plants. Xylem is responsible for the conduction of water from the roots to other parts of the plant.

Due to transpiration and the resulting pressure gradient, water is absorbed into the root xylem of plants. The transpirational pull formed causes the roots to absorb water from the soil, resulting in water transportation.
