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

    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.

  2. How temperature affects the rate of photosynthesis.

    Also the oxygen released from the shoot was being measured and not the amount released from the site of photosynthesis i.e. the leaves. This was inaccurate as firstly the shoot may have been cut at an angle which allowed air bubbles to clog up the cut end.

  1. The effects of organic effluent from the seweage on the biodiversty in a freshwater ...

    Where seweage is deposited untreated in relatively small amounts of water i.e. streams the BOD may be great enough to remove entirely the dissolved oxygen. This causes death of aerobic species, including fish, leaving only anerobic ones. The BOD is offset by new oxygen being dissolved and in fast-moving, shallow, turbulent streams this is sufficient enough to prevent anaerobic conditions.

  2. 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.

    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.
