Imbibition is type of diffusion by which especially solids swell due to entry of water from the outside environment. Swelling of dry seeds is an example of imbibition.The substance that imbibes water is called as imbibant.Imbibition is the phenomenon by which water particles adhere to xylem vessels in transportation of water in the plant.
Different factors affecting imbibition are temperature, nature of the imbibant, concentration of the solute and surface area of the imbibant.
