Introduction

Aim I am going to investigate the light to find the effects of light intensity in the rate of the photosynthesis. Introduction Light is one of the most important substance o photosynthesis. Photosynthesis increases depend on the intensity of light. We can recognise whether bubbles occur photosynthesis. Hence, I predict that as the light intensity is increases, the number of bubbles is going to increase. Apparatus 1) One 1 litre of beaker 2) 800 ml of water 3) ...read more.

Middle

Put a lamp 1m from the beaker. 5) Put a metre rule for measure the distance between lamp and beaker. 6) Cover the beaker by a box except a side which the light goes in. 7) Approach the lamp 5cm to the beaker every minute. 8) Measure the number of bubbles for every minute. Result Distance from the pondweed Number of bubbles in the First experiment Number of bubbles in the Second experiment Average 100 12 3 7.5 95 12 4 8 90 13 6 9.5 85 14 8 11 80 14 8 11 75 17 9 13 ...read more.

Conclusion

In other words, when the light intensity is increases, the photosynthesis is increases. Evaluation I did my experiment very keenly to make accurate. First, I did my experiment because it can have different result with same environment. Hence, I calculated the average of two results and drew the graph of result. Also, I used counter, which was for count the number of bubbles to measure accurately. Therefore, I could get good result from my method. Through this experiment, I could improve my biological observational faculty and importance of photosynthesis in Biology. ...read more.

    Investigation to find out how light intensity effects the rate of photosynthesis

    4 star(s)

    Artificial light is used in glasshouses when extra light is needed. In water, only the top few meters get sufficient light for plants to use in photosynthesis. Plants that are able to detect a source of light grow towards it, for example, cress.

  2. How temperature affects the rate of photosynthesis.

    Errors: Many errors were observed during the experiment: * Human error could have been caused during cutting the elodea length under water. An increase or decrease in the length would have results in a higher or a lower amount of oxygen being released respectively because of the changes in the number of leaves in the plant.

  1. The effects of light intensity on the rate of photosynthesis.

    I will make sure that temperature is not a limiting factor by checking the thermometer regularly to sustain a constant temperature5. Chlorophyll concentration is not normally a limiting factor, but it can become one if chlorophyll levels are unusually low.

    they were due to the release of organic effluent from the sewage in the in the fresh water stream and not due to any random errors. T-test: The t-test assesses whether the means of two groups are statistically different from each other.

  1. In this coursework I am going to find out if trees modify the environment.

    Trees also hold the soil together to prevent soil erosion. I think there will be less living ground cover on the path because when humans walk on the path they trample on and kill any living ground cover. There is also more soil erosion on the path because the top soil comes off when humans are walking on it.
