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.

  1. Marked by a teacher

    An investigation into the effect of a germination inhibitor on the germination of seeds.

    3 star(s)

    This then enables the seed to release the germination promoting plant hormone, gibberellic acid. This acts on the aleurone layer inside the seed coat to stimulate alpha-amylase production. This enzyme then starts to break down the stored starch (water insoluble)

  2. Investigation into Cress Seeds

    Accuracy: I think my results were quite accurate because I had incorporated a large amount of secondary data so there was less chance of being inaccurate. In case my results were incorrect, I could always use the other peoples results as we had all carried it out in the same conditions.

  1. Mangrove Soil Analysis

    is not subject to changes in acidity in the ways stated above. The soil with the lowest pH reading was the Clay sample (5.9). Using the pH scale this means that the soil is Moderatly acid. I am not too sure of the accuracy of this reading as it does not agree with the facts on pH examined above.

  2. Factors affecting Germination

    Prepare nine germination pots 2) Using the nine germination pots fill each with vermiculite leaving approximately 1cm of space to the top of the pot. 3) Place 3-5 seeds in each pot. 4) Cover with 5mm of vermiculite 5) Situate in full sunlight 6)
