  • dependent/independent light lab

    Light Lab Introduction: The purpose of this lab is to observe how influential light is to the construction and/or use of CO2 and O2 amongst plants. This can be examined by experimenting the effects of plants under both light and no light. In order to begin this experiment you must begin by wrapping the “BioChamber” with aluminum foil to prevent light from coming through to the leaves‚ however‚ once the lid has been covered you are to poke holes so you can insert the sensors. Next‚ you will

  • Dispersion Of White Light Analysis

    understand what the dispersion of white light through a prism is. In simplest terms‚ the dispersion of white light is the process white light passes through a transparent triangular prism. Once the white light strikes the surface of the prism‚ it is refracted‚ which in scientific terms means that the light is deviated from its original path. At the point of refraction‚ the white light is separated into the 7 different color components that make up white light: red‚ orange‚ yellow‚ green‚ blue‚ indigo

  • Light Affect on Plant Growth

    out if the color of light a plant receives‚ affects the plant growth. Light is electromagnetic radiation that comes in waves‚ the basic units of which are called photons. Plants use light to turn carbon dioxide into sugars necessary for growth‚ a process called photosynthesis. Sunlight is a full spectrum of different wave lengths of light. Seen through a prism‚ this spectrum turns into bands of color: red‚ orange‚ yellow‚ green‚ blue‚ indigo and violet. (Stern‚ 2004). The light of the sun is white

  • The Effect of Light Intensity on Photosynthesis

    The Effects of Light Intensity on the Rate of Photosynthesis Aim: To investigate the effects of light intensity on photosynthesis. Background: Photosynthesis is a process that plants undergo to produce glucose. The plant then uses the glucose to produce energy which the plant needs to sustain life. The chemical formula for photosynthesis is: Sunlight 6CO2 +6H2O → C6H12O6 + 6O2 Chlorophyll The plant requires light‚ carbon dioxide and

  • Light Intensity and Characteristics of Photocells

    Light Intensity Characteristics of Photocells The photoelectric effect is defined as the emission of electrons from a material by visible light. The cadmium sulfide photocell is used to act as a conductor once exposed to light‚ allowing light to travel through. However it also acts as an electric resister (an opposition to a current flowing in a circuit) once not exposed to light. The photocell serves today ’s cause in a sufficient manner. It is used for a variety of reasons but it is mainly

  • Electric vs Light Microscopes

    disadvantages of a light microscope and electron microscope? Some of the disadvantages of the light microscope include‚ that since it send light‚ the light waves are diffracted as they pass through the matter. Because of this‚ light microscopes can only produce clear images of objects to a magnification of about 1000 times. Another problem is that since most living cells are nearly transparent‚ you can’t see them. So you have to use dyes to stain them. The advantage of using a light microscope however
