-Work Division
Everyone will plant the green bean and make a deep investigation about a 10 days experiment.
-Jasper have divide us in to different jobs and give us the method to achieve our aims and goals

TimeLine
28/11 10days observation-> 10/12 Collect data-> 11/12 Doing report-> 13/12 Deadline

1. Objective
We will strive to discover the difference of the plant which is using different type water to plant.
Besides, we will also discover the reason why the difference will change the growth rate

2. Hypothesis
Using tap water to plant will have faster growth rate instead of salt water
3. Materials
1 cup, 3 green beans, 30g of cottons

4. Table of variables
Control
variables
Dependent variables
Independent
variables
Amount and kind of cottons
Growth rates of each plants
Type of water
Amount of water
Height of each plant

Amount and kind of beans

Same size of cup

Same environment

5. Experiment procedures
-SETUP
1. Put 20g of cotton to the bottom of the two cups
2. Put two beans at the top of the cottons in both cups
3. Sprinkle them with salt water in the first cup, and sprinkle the others one with tap water
-MEASURE
Our measuring Units is the height which is centimeter
We will use the ruler to measure the growth

-TIMES
We will grow the beans for 10 days and we will observe them by taking photo and we finally got 5 days data for both plants

6. Result
What I observe-
1. I can observe that those green bean which is sprinkle by tap water will be looking greener and they grow faster and stronger, their leaves is sharp.
2. I can observe that the green beans which is sprinkle by salt water couldn’t grow or even have their skin off and grow high

The amount of water for growing a plant has always been questioned regarding how much of it is most effective to grow the plant to its greatest potential. Too little water will not effectively grow the seed because it would require more water for photosynthesis. If there is not enough water, photosynthesis will not occur as much and will not produce as much C6H12O6 (sugar) it needs to construct cellulose for its cell walls (its structure), produce ATP (energy) molecules from respiration, and make organic molecules. Too much water would also be dangerous for the plant because oxygen wouldn 't be able to get through the overwatered soil and get to the roots, thus suffocating them. Oxygen is vital for respiration, the process of making energy (ATP) for the plant. Also, overwatering can kill the seed by drowning it and making its tissue fragile to rotting, not even growing the plant. From these researched observations, it can be assumed that the in-between amounts of water are favorable to the growth of the seed and plant lifespan.…

For this experiment we have prepared to water baths. One bath is ice water, around 10 degrees Celsius, the other warm, around 25 degrees Celsius. Both water baths will contain three respirometers. One with 25 germinated peas the volume measured in ml., one with the same number of peas with glass beads added to attain the same volume, and one with only glass beads to the volume of the other two. Added to the respirometers will be KOH(potassium hydroxide) to selectively remove any carbon dioxide produced with the consumption of oxygen. The three respirometers will be submerged in each bath and allowed to…

The purpose of this lab was to determine which concentration of Miracle Gro was ideal for the germination of seeds. I hypothesized that the 1.25% concentration of Miracle Gro would allow the plant to grow the fastest, unfortunately, my data does not support my hypothesis. According to the information we collected, the amount of concentration with the fastest speed and greatest height of growth was the 0% with plain tap water (control group). Two days after “planting,” my group measured the seed with the greatest rate of growth: 0% exhibited 2.5 cm of growth, 1.25% had 0.9 cm, 2.5% showed 1.2 cm, 3.75% displayed 0.8 cm, and 5% had 0.5cm of growth. As evidenced by the data collected, the height of the sprout decreases as the percent of concentration increases. We checked the growth of our mung bean seeds a second time and we observed the results: 0% exhibited 15 cm of growth showing signs of growth through its stalk, roots, and leaves. The 1.25% and 2.5% both grew 2 cm and began sprouting a stalk. The 3.75% and 5% turned dark brown and appeared to have shrunk which are signs that the seed’s embryo is dead. The data did not match our expected data, because the Miracle Gro had some way prevented the imbibition of the seed which is why the 3.75% and 5% died. Imbibition is a critical developmental process in seeds and our control group with only water demonstrated the most successful amount of growth.…

For this project we had to experiment to see the effects of blue light on a plants growth. We had to research on light and its effects on photosynthesis. This helped me with my experiment because I had knowledge for what was going on with the plants and light. For this project I and one of my classmates had to conduct a experiment to see the effects of blue light versus white light. For this project we had to grow lentil beans under white and blue light and water and measure them daily. My experimental question was what is the effect of blue light on the height of lentil beans?…

Purpose: The purpose of the lab is to find equal measurement of each type of bean. After you find the mass of each bean you need to find the relative mass of each bean. The navy bean will have the smallest relative mass. You will need to wear safety goggles and a lab apron and wash hands after the lab is finished. If you drop any beans pick them up immediately to prevent anyone from slipping.…

Our aim was to test the effect of different salinities on the growth of plants which what we did was measured different amounts of salt dissolved into 2 litres of water, watered the plant once with the salt water then for 9 days with pure ware. I found with my investigation that the less the salt, the more the growth of the plant. My aim was achieved by measuring the 5 fastest geminating (out of 20) and to measure the differences in growth of the plant. I also had a few difficulties in the duration of this experiment which were the sunlight on the plants direct which made the plants to begin to die and also the highest salinity plant was not growing.…
