4. With the marking pen, write ''Nutrients'' on a piece of masking tape and tape this label to the jug of liquid fertilizer. 5. Prepare two separate containers of beans as follows: a. Fold one paper towel and line the inside of a glass with it. b. Put together several paper towels and stuff them into the glasses hold the paper lining against the glass. c. Place five beans between the glass and the paper towel lining, evenly spacing the beans around the perimeter of the glass. ...read more.

Conclusion

Fold and staple the top and sides of the paper. 9. Each day, until the bean grows , remove the paper covering from each glass and observe the contents. 10. Collect the results and make a conclusion. iv) The Independent Variable is the liquid plant fertilizer for the germination. The Dependent Variable is the speed the seeds will grow. v) Variables to be controlled a) The amount of distilled water in each jug. b) Even spacing the beans around the glass. c) Same moisture contained in the paper towels. d) Where the glasses are placed, whether in sun or shade. ...read more.

  1. Marked by a teacher

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

    3 star(s)

    They are being used because they are easily accessible and germinate quite quickly therefore time is not wasted waiting for them to grow. o Water; this is to be used to lower the concentration of the inhibitor; it will be mixed in with it to produce the varying concentrations.

  2. Factors affecting Germination

    Gradually the enzymes present during winter will leach away the acid leaving the seed ready to germinate in spring, which is likely to bring favourable conditions. This investigation examines five variables of the seeds environment during the germination process. The first variable is the exposure to sunlight, being either; full sunlight exposure, part sun/part shade, and no exposure to sunlight.

  1. Sensor Project

    A Voltmeter (digimultimeter) connected across the potentiometer to measure the voltage Water is added per 100ml in tank which cause movement to polystyrene. Safety As the experiment involves water and electrical power supply, electrical components have to be placed away from water to avoid danger.

  2. Factors That Germination Influence

    * Spacing - Each seed will be placed in a square matrix 2cm away from other seeds. * Temperature - The seeds will all be exposed to room temperature. * Light Intensity - All seeds will be placed in front of the same window.
