  • Respiration And Photosynthesis

    achieving this knowledge, we furthered our understanding of photosynthetic reactions by and experimenting with the factors that affect photosynthesis, which are light intensity, pigments, and light wavelength. By experimenting with these factors, our group was able to create an action and absorbance spectrum, which allowed us to determine which light wavelengths do the pigments in plants respectively absorb for photosynthesis. This allowed us to fully understand what conditions photosynthesis…

  • Spectrophotometer Lab Report

    wavelength of light absorbed and the color of a compound. Next, one must determine a way to relate the amount of light absorbed with the concentration of the solution. After gaining knowledge about these two parts of the lab, one will be able to determine how a Spectrophotometer 20 can be helpful in determining the concentration of phosphate in colas.3 A spectrophotometer is used to obtain measurements of the amount of light that passes through a object and to measure the amount of light…

  • Light Filtration And Photosynthesis Essay

    How does light filtration affect the rate of photosynthesis? Introduction: Photosynthesis is an essential process plants use to convert light energy from the sun into chemical energy, released as glucose. Some of the limiting factors of photosynthesis include temperature, amount of light, the concentration of carbon dioxide, availability of water and the concentration of chlorophyll. Fig.1- The word and symbol equations for photosynthesis. The aim of the practical is to model the rate of…
