  • Photosynthesis Experiment

    Photosynthesis Experiment Introduction Photosynthesis is a process used by plants‚ making inorganic molecules into organic molecules (food) using sunlight. Carbon dioxide + Water (mainly from rain)  Glucose + Oxygen From this process‚ carbon dioxide comes from environment. Glucose‚ as a product is used to make energy for growth. Lastly‚ the oxygen is a waste product in this chemical reaction‚ which become part of the Earth’s atmosphere. At this experiment‚ carbon dioxide and water

  • Factor affecting photosynthesis

    Factors Affecting Photosynthesis Low light intensity lowers the rate of photosynthesis. As the intensity is increased the rate also increases. However‚ after reaching an intensity of 10‚000 lux (lux is the unit for measuring light intensity) there is no effect on the rate. Very high intensity may‚ in fact‚ slow down the rate as it bleaches the chlorophyll. Normal sunlight (usually with an intensity of about 100‚000 lux) is quite sufficient for a normal rate of photosynthesis. Open and Closed

  • Lima Bean Experiment

    concentrations on lima bean growth? Personal Engagement: For my internal assessment‚ I chose calcium because it interested me how adding a certain nutrient or element‚ can aid in growth of an organism. Calcium is a vital nutrient needed by most organisms and can be found in many things we consume like milk. Knowing that calcium helps keep humans healthy and have stronger bones‚ I wanted to experiment how calcium might aid in the growth of lima beans. Background Information: In plant growth‚ calcium effects

  • The Effect of Light Quantity on Photosynthesis of Green Land Plants

    The effect of light quantity on photosynthesis of green land plants Introduction Photosynthesis is the process of converting light energy into chemical energy (Hoober 1984). Pigments within chloroplasts‚ primarily chlorophyll‚ absorb the incoming solar energy which excites their electrons (Hoober 1984). These pigments exist in photosystems in the thylakoid membrane of the chloroplast (Ladiges et al.2010). As the electrons return to ground level‚ they are captured by the electron acceptor in the

  • Photosynthesis and Yellow Light

    Photosynthesis Lab Report Introduction The lights are essential for photosynthesis and it plays a major role. All the food we eat and all the fossil fuel we use is a product of photosynthesis‚ which is the process that converts energy in sunlight to chemical forms of energy that can be used by biological systems. Photosynthesis is carried out by many different organisms but usually by plants and algae. All these organisms convert CO2 (carbon dioxide)

  • Photosynthesis Investigation and Light

    LIGHT IN PHOTOSYNTHESIS Theory: Leaf discs float normally. When the air spaces are infiltrated with the solution the overall density of the leaf disc increases and the disc sinks. The infiltration solution includes a small amount of sodium bicarbonate. The bicarbonate ions serve as the carbon source for photosynthesis. As photosynthesis proceeds oxygen is released into the interior of the leaf which changes the buoyancy – causing the discs to rise. Since cellular respiration is taking place

  • Light Reaction of Photosynthesis

    The light reactions of photosynthesis contain two photosystems‚ two electron transport chains‚ and ATP synthase. These parts are embedded in the thylakoid membranes of a chloroplast. The photosystems contain a collection of chlorophyll molecules. Chlorophyll‚ which is the green pigment of leaves‚ absorbs light energy that excites electrons to a higher energy level. Energized electrons from photosystem I are passed down an electron transport chain and added to NADP+ to form NADPH. Electrons from photosystem

  • Mung Bean Experiment

    Density on Growth of Mung Bean (Vigna radiata) Plants Wylliam Wagoner1 1 Population and Community Ecology‚ Butler University‚ Indianapolis‚ Indiana 46208‚ USA ABSTRACT For this experiment‚ we set out to find if density and time had an effect on growth of mung bean plants. We decided to test evidence of growth by measuring plant biomass. We measured the biomass each week for four weeks of plants grown at different densities. We found that density had an overall effect on plant growth‚ but density only
