Center: Academia Británica Cuscatleca Center Number: SV001 Name: Roberto Rodriguez Candidate Number: Practical Title: Germination Experiment Number: Germination ________________ Equipment: 1. Ruler 2. 5 Beakers 3. 25 Beans 4. Water 5. Soil 6. Measuring Cylinder Method: 1. Put some soil in every beaker and make sure it is almost the same amount 2. Place 5 beans inside each beaker at the same level beneath the soil 3. Pour 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 ml of water in each beaker respectively and keep watering them every 2 days 4. ...read more.


Results: amount of water (ml) Length of plants (cm) average length (cm) 10.0 12.0 12.0 7.5 10.5 20.0 18.0 19.0 16.5 17.8 30.0 - - - - 40.0 - - - - 50.0 - - - - Conclusion: The first thing we can see from the results is a boundary in the amount of water in relation with the beaker size and the amount of soil. In the table we can see that after the 20ml of water the seeds drowned and so they didn?t grew at all. ...read more.


Evaluation: I think that in general this experiment was carried out fairly in terms of the type of seed, thay were kept in a well lit place, all the beakers had the same soil and the same amount of it, etc. The problem was that the plants were drowned so we couldn?t get a good set of results, so if he experiment had to be carried out again I would set a limit of water to allow the plants to actualy germinate. ...read more.

    none at all - showing a relationship between inhibitor concentration and germination. Null Hypothesis: That there is no relationship between the concentration of the inhibitor and the germination of cress seeds. The Variables The independent variable is the one that is going to be changed, which is the Inhibitor Concentration.

  1. Investigation into Cress Seeds

    This would mean the cress would grow straight so that it would be easier for me to measure. However, this may have effected the growth at the auxin causing the wide range of results. 3. When we were measuring, we may not have all measured from the same place therefore ending up with high variable results.
