  • Seed Germination Experiment

    Introduction/Purpose There are many parts to a seed. First, there is the testa (seed coat). It is the outside layer protecting the inside of the seed. On the side of the seed, there is a tiny hole called the micropyle. Water can be taken through the hole when it is ready to germinate. Inside the seed near the micropyle, there is a root called a radicle. When the seed begins to grow the radicle will come out the micropyle. The seed coat can protect the seed from many factors such as freezing temperatures, heat, radiation, or acidity. Each seed has to go through the process of seed germination before they become a plant. With the right temperature and amount of water, the seed should start germinating within a couple days. The oxygen and water…

  • What Is The Effect Of Salt Concentration On Seed Germination

    Impact of Salt on Seed Germination Introduction Germination is a key event in a plant’s lifetime and controlled by two main factors which are water and salt stress (Yuan et al., 2016 and Vallejo et al., 2010). Salt stress affects plant growth and crop production by causing osmotic and ionic stress in plants. Alonso-Blanco et al in 2009 reported that less study was made on the traits in Arabidopsis thaliana despite the immense genetic variation present in the species and the importance of seed…

  • Factor Germination

    Germination- Germination is when seeds are spread/blown somewhere else and grow into new plants or when a seed is planted by someone in the ground. Although there are many important factors that are involved in seed germination the three most important ones are water, sunlight, and temperature. Plants are not able to germinate if the seed is watered too much or too little. Plants are not capable to grow food from sunlight when they are seeds, so the seed will use other things, such as water, to…

  • Vicia Faba Seeds Essay

    40 “Yates” Vicia Faba seeds were selected and measured using a millimetre ruler, ensuring that all selected seeds were kept within a size range of 3mm in diameter. Each one of the 8 pots was filled with 8dm3 of soil and given a label using the marking pen, indicating the concentration of gibberellic acid that would be poured into it. 5 Vicia Faba seeds were placed in each pot and buried into the soil at a consistent depth of 1cm. The distance between each seed and adjacent seeds was kept at a…

  • Gestil Bean Seeds Experiment Essay

    Due to the fact, that the increase of radicle length within lentil bean seeds was affected by the environmental aqueous solutions, which was made up of either a table sugar, dextrose or a control. It presented that there was not a statistical difference between the table sugar or dextrose aqueous solutions in comparison to the radicle lengths since the P values were less than 0.05. Although, there was a statistical increase in radicle length with the comparison to the control. If these seeds…

  • Zeatin And Naohormones Grow Experiment

    Quantitative measurements such as: the width of both the radicle and hypocotyl, the length of both the radicle and hypocotyl, and how many seeds have sprouted on each day are taken throughout the germination. In each petri dish, there will be a grid of the measuring paper to record both width and length. Qualitative measurements such as the quality (how strong the radicle and hypocotyl looks compared to the control) and color of both will be measured to help support the quantitative results. To…

  • Brassica Rapa Seeds

    This is relevant question for the life of plants because cytokinins primarily promote lateral growth (branching out), balanced by auxins (a different plant growth hormone) which combat lateral growth. It is crucial for germination because the endosperm of the seeds contain large amounts of the cytokinin (specifically zeatin), and when the seed germinates, it moves from the endosperm to the root tip where it stimulates mitosis. (Cytokinins, 2016) The hypothesis is that if all other variables are…

  • Benefits Of Cassava

    The majority of glucose is used for cellulose synthesis and other cell wall materials. Amino acids are used as enzymes and structural components. The net loss of mass of the seed occurs due to change of sugars to CO2 and water where CO2 is lost as gas then O2 taken up by aerobic respiration. Growth occurs by cell division within the embryo and amounts of proteins, cellulose, nucleic acids steadily increase in the growing region of the seed. The first visible sign of growth is the radicle that…

  • The French Revolution: Changes In Political Culture

    The monarchy that fell due to new ideas and old political problems. Changes in political culture from the absolutism to the moderate revolution that lead to the French Revolution There have been many revolutions throughout history some see as more justified than others such people in America see their revolution a necessity. But I personally believe that the French Revolution was more radicle and due to centuries in the making. Through new ideas and philosophers of the time this lead…

  • Polymerisation Essay

    Part C Question 1 Addition polymerization In addition polymerization, polymer is formed by addition monomer without eliminating any product at specified temperature, pressure and presence of catalyst. Different methods of addition polymerization are free radical polymerization, cationic polymerization, anionic polymerization and coordination polymerization. Mainly addition polymerization occurs in the monomers having double bound. This process has three stages initiation, propagation,…
