To determine whether the Temperature would affect the rate of photosynthesis in a plant.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Aim: The aim of my experiment is to determine whether the Temperature would affect the rate of photosynthesis in a plant. Hypothesis: Prediction: I predict that the hotter the temperature is, the More bubbles I get. We all know that photosynthesis needs light to work, and heat. So the higher it is, the fast rate it takes to make more bubbles. ...read more.

Middle

� Take results after one minute for each individual experiment. Method: � Collect apparatus. � Set up apparatus as in diagram. � Fill measuring cylinder and beaker with water. � Each Minute, we would have different temperature. � Start stopwatch. � Count the bubbles for every one-minute, then write my results down on a paper. ...read more.

Conclusion

All of the results I was given show this pattern. In the experiment when the temperature was 60, it was when most of the bubbles came out, about 37bubble per-minute. However, when the temperature dropped, the number also dropped and decreased to about 5bubbles per minute. I believe this is because when the temperature is higher, the photosynthesis is faster, and better. ...read more.

    7 test tubes will be needed for the 7 different temperatures, and the same test tube will be used for each repeat. Elodea water 200 cm� To provide water for the elodea to be kept inside the test tube. Elodea water will be used so that the elodea plant doesn't

  2. Investigating the effect of temperature on the rate of photosynthesis

    The temperature of the water may not have been completely accurate. This is because during the 5 minutes the elodea was left, the temperature often drifted from what was needed. In this case, we added ice or warm water to allow the temperature to return to the desired.

    These cells provide mechanical support for the plant. They are most often found in areas that are growing rapidly and need to be strengthened. The petiole (stalk) of leaves is usually reinforced with Collenchyma. Xylem: conducts water and dissolved minerals from the roots to all the other parts of the plant.

  1. Factors That Affect Photosynthesis.

    This the second is due to other factors limiting the rate of photosynthesis. These other factors do not immediately limit the rate of photosynthesis but rather gradually. As light intensity increases the photosynthetic rate is being limited by certain factors such as carbon dioxide and temperature.
