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.

    From the qualitative observations we also see that the plant does not stand erect and healthy. This is because it loses water to the soils. It also lacks essential nutrients and therefore good plant growth does not take place. We also see that the number of seeds that germinated were

    Opening of the stomata not only allows CO2 to diffuse into the leaf, but allows water to diffuse out of the leaf. The alteration in the size of the stomata occurs in response to a variety of the external stimuli such as light, carbon dioxide concentration and water.

  2. Factors That Affect Photosynthesis.

    Conclusion: From the results that I have gathered I can state that an increase in light intensity certainly does increase the rate of photosynthesis. As was also expected in my prediction, the relationship between light intensity and the rate of photosynthesis was non-linear.
