Surrounding aquatic organisms is a boundary layer across which molecules must move via diffusion. As the rate of water flow around an organism increases the size of the boundary layer shrinks. Using this information, determine how the rate of nutrient uptake in aquatic plants/algae change as water flow rates change.
