Key Stage 4 Photosynthesis Investigation

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Key Stage 4 Photosynthesis Investigation Aim: The aim is to find out weather light intensity affects the rate of photosynthesis. Prediction + Theory/Hypothesis: I predict that light intsinty (brightness) does affect the rate of photosynthesis. As the intensity gets higher I expect that the rate of photosynthesis will increase, until it can't increase any more dew to limiting factors such as Co2 levels + temperature Plan/Method: 1. ...read more.

My prediction about limiting factors such as Co2 level + temperature were also correct. Evaluation: I think that my method was suitable for this investigation as you can see from my results. I think that my investigation supports my results and my conclusion ...read more.

  1. Photosynthesis Investigation

    I want to know if the intensity of light is high, then will the rate of photosynthesis will be faster. Hypothesis The effect of light intensity on the rate of photosynthesis Photosynthesis depends on the amount of light available. Increase in light intensity increases the rate of photosynthesis and less of it decreases its rate.

  2. How temperature affects the rate of photosynthesis.

    From the graph it is clear that the curve is very steep between 45 oC and 55 oC, whereas it levels off considerably between 55 oC and 65 oC. This graphical evidence and the clear difference in gradients of the changes between the two sets of data shows that an

    Combined cycle power plants operate by combining the gas cycle and the steam cycle for higher efficiency. The hot exhaust gases exiting the gas turbine are routed to the steam cycle and are used to heat or boil water. These exhaust gases typically carry away up to 70% of the

    Thus the time for evaporation to occur will be the same for each soil sample. * Similarly take out all petri dishes after 12 hours as opposed to taking them out individually and calculating the percentage water, as this will again ensure that each sample has the same amount of time to dry out.
