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.

    to build up the simple sugar, glucose , from carbon dioxide and water. The light energy is trapped as chemical energy in the glucose molecule. Plants can use any source of light rays, but the source that does not run out is sunlight.

    IMPLEMENTATION: SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS: * Wear goggles to prevent organic effluent dirty water from entering the eyes. * Wear gloves when using the net to prevent any dirty water causing the hands to be filthy, as this can be hazardous for the skin the species may bite or carry diseases.

  1. How temperature affects the rate of photosynthesis.

    Moreover the collision take place with an even higher energy (again compared to the energy they collide with at 15 oC) and therefore the activation energy is overcome quicker to form the transition stage and thereafter the products too are formed at a much faster rate.

  2. 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.

  1. Photosynthetic rate and light intensity.

    In my preliminary experiment, I performed the task but with no measurements taken. I just wanted to test to see if it worked at the different distances. I found that a lot of bubbles were produced when the lamp was very close to the Elodea, but when I moved it

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

    Hypothesis 2 I think that there will be a difference in ground cover between the path and the woods. I expect to see more living ground cover in the woods than on the path. I think so because when trees in the woods lose their leaves, they decompose in the soil to make it fertile, this allows plants to grow.
