    The effect of the concentration of carbon dioxide on the rate of photosynthesis The rate of photosynthesis increases with the concentration of carbon dioxide. This is because the concentration of carbon dioxide determines the rate at which carbon is incorporated into the glucose made in the light-independent reaction of photosynthesis – the Calvin cycle, until the process is limited by other factors. When there is a high concentration of carbon dioxide the carbon is fixed into the sugars produced...

    All green parts of a plant have chloroplasts. However, the leaves are the major site of photosynthesis for most plants. There are about half a million chloroplasts per square millimeter of leaf surface. The color of a leaf comes from chlorophyll, the green pigment in the chloroplasts. Chlorophyll plays an important role in the absorption of light energy during photosynthesis. Chloroplasts are found mainly in mesophyll cells forming the tissues in the interior of the leaf. O2 exits and CO2 enters...

    Photosynthesis Light reaction of photosynthesis occurs on the thylakoid membrane inside of chloroplast. Light energy excites electrons that are carried down an electron transport chain. The purpose of this is to give the hydrogen ions the energy they need for active transport. It is active because the concentration of hydrogen ions outside the thylakoid is less than inside. Now that there is a high concentration of hydrogen inside the thylakoid, ATP synthase can occur. As the hydrogen go through...

    Background Theory Photosynthesis: Plants require water from the soil, sunlight and carbon dioxide found in the atmosphere for growth and development. In the process of photosynthesis, carbon dioxide and water – in the presence of chlorophyll and light energy – are converted into sugar and oxygen, which is given off as a by-product. Generally, as sunlight increases in intensity, the rate of photosynthesis also increases [1]. This means greater food production within the plant. Many garden vegetables...
