Effect of different colors of light on the rate of photosynthesis.

There are four things that are required by the plant before it can carry out photosynthesis, they are light, chlorophyll, carbon dioxide and water ....

The internal structure of the leaf is also adapted to promote efficient photosynthesis:

6CO + 6H O ® C H O + 12O (in the presence of light energy and chlorophyll) Aim- The aim of the experiment is to determine what effect light intensity has upon the rate of photosynthesis of Canadian Pondweed (Elodea)....


Investigate the effect of light on seed germination.

How does light intensity and duration affect the rate of photosynthesis?

Light Filters are used and
light intensity stays the same The colors used in order of wavelength
blue being the smallest and red the largest so the order will go
white, blue, green, yellow, orange, red.


The Effect of Wavelength on Photosynthesis Rate :: …


Blue carries a lot of energy and is highly absorbed so the level of
photosynthetic rate is high, were as green carries quite a bit of
energy but isn't absorbed at all so the level of photosynthetic rate
is low and red carries little energy but I highly absorbed all these
facts match with my prediction and my results.

intensity of light was higher, and that photosynthesis occurs ..

I could then see that if the process would not give sufficient
results with the lamp at a distance from the pond weed at 50cm, then
process of photosynthesis would definitely cease to take place with
the light source at a distance of 100cm from the pond weed.

EFFECT of green light on photosynthesis with …

First you will measure the amount of O2 consumed during respiration (in
the dark); then you will measure the amount of O2 produced by photosynthesis (in the
light).

in ����
You will also do an absorption spectrum of the photosynthetic pigments extracted
from Elodea and determine if there is a correlation between the rates of photosynthesis
under the different colored bulbs, the wavelengths of light that those filters transmit, and
the optimum wavelengths of light absorbed by the plant.
Biol 171L – FA15 Effect of Light Color on Photosynthesis 7-5
EXPERIMENT PROCEDURE
Overview
You will work in groups, as directed by your TA, and each group will take one part of the
experiment.

Effect Of Light Intensity On Photosynthesis Experiment

From this I
have gained the knowledge that the original light within the lab
(without the aid of the lamp) would not effect the investigation by
very much, if at all.
