  • An Investigation on the Effects of Light Intensity on Photosynthesis

    Plan I plan to investigate how light intensity affects the rate of photosynthesis in pondweed. The rate of photosynthesis will be measured by the number of bubbles given off (considering that oxygen is produced as a waste gas during photosynthesis). The light intensity is measured by the distance between...

  • Effects of Light Intensity on the Rate of Photosynthesis

    Aim To work out how light intensity can affect the rate of photosynthesis. Hypothesis I think that the further away the light source is the smaller the rate of photosynthesis is. This is because there is a further distance for the light to each the plant in order for it to photosynthesise. Although...

  • Conclusion on Light Intensity Lab

    Conclusion In this experiment I tested different light intensities. I tested a normal fluorescent light bulb, a 100-watt light bulb, a 25-watt light bulb, and a 15-watt light bulb. I was surprised to find that the control plant grew the most at 135 mm. The 100 watt plant grew the least at 0 mm due...
