Leaf Disc Photosynthesis Lab

Lab Report #1 Photosynthesis Lab Report: The Effects of Varying Concentrations of CO2 on the rate of Photosynthesis in Spinach Leaves Introduction Photosynthesis is the process by which green plants and some other organisms use sunlight to synthesize foods from carbon dioxide and water. Photosynthesis in plants generally involves the green pigment chlorophyll and generates oxygen as a byproduct. The purpose of this experiment is to see how different concentrations of carbon...

Lab Report on Photosynthesis

Lab Report: Understanding Photosynthesis Gen Biology Lab Abstract: This lab was called photosynthesis: understanding photosynthesis. It is a highly complex process that needs to be broken down in many steps to understand how it works. This lab covers the big components in photosynthesis including carbon dioxide intake, light consumption, and varying pigmentation. Introduction: Photosynthesis is a huge concept to learn and understand in the field of biology. Plants have their own special...

AP Biology Photosynthesis Lab

AP Biology Photosynthesis Lab Bethany Boyer Due 11/12/14 Lab Write-Up Questions First Experiment 1) The independent variable in this experiment was the presence of CO2 (carbon dioxide). The dependent variable was the speed at which the leaf disks started to float. 2) In the leaf tissue, the bicarbonate and light are combining to carry out photosynthesis. This will cause oxygen to collect in the leaf tissue, causing it to rise. 3) If we were to boil the leaf disks, the reaction would most likely...

Photosynthesis Lab

Alyssa Wright VARIABLE: LIGHT INTENSITY AIM: to investigate the effect of light intensity (lux) on the amount of oxygen produced (number of bubbles) HYPOTHESIS: I predict that the rate of oxygen produced increases, as the light intensity increases, but only to a point. I predict this will happen because the plant will have enough carbon dioxide and water to keep up with the amount of light that there is. When there is less light intensity, photosynthesis will happen...

Biology Lab Report on the Effects of Photosynthesis

Abstract For this lab the rate of photosynthesis was analyzed upon plant leaves. A sample of a light exposed and a not-light exposed leave were used to clearly identify the role of sunlight in the process of producing and storing energy. Aim We are trying to find proof, to demonstrate the necessity of light and chlorophyll in the process of photosynthesis. Background Photosynthesis occurs in organisms which contain chlorophyll. It's a process that involves the chloroplasts to synthesize glucose...

SBI4U Photosynthesis Lab Gizmo

Photosynthesis Lab Gizmo website: www.explorelearning.com Class code: EFVNHTVRGY Gizmo Warm-up During photosynthesis, plants use the energy of light to produce glucose (C6H12O6) from carbon dioxide (CO2), and water (H2O). Glucose is a simple sugar that plants use for energy and as a building block for larger molecules. A by-product of photosynthesis is oxygen. Plants use some of the oxygen they produce, but most of it is released. In the Photosynthesis Lab Gizmo™, you...
