It also indicates that photomorphogenetic processes can all be triggered by blue wavelengths and that despite a lower assimilation rate, blue light can provide sufficient energy via photosynthesis to sustain normal growth and development in roses.
in plants is dependent upon capturing light energy in the pigment , and in particular chlorophyll a. This chlorophyll resides mostly in the and gives leaves their green color. The range of light absorption in leaves is extended by some such as the , but does not cover the entire visible range - that would make the leaves black!
The aim was to show that light is necessary for photosynthesis.
Furthermore, I predict that if the light intensity increases, the rate of photosynthesis will increase at a proportional rate and more oxygen will be produced and therefore the oxygen levels will increase.
Why the rate of Photosynthesis is higher in red light …
Green or yellow light will have the slowest rates of photosynthesis because they are reflected by the pigments in the plant.
DESCRIPTION & ANALYSIS
SOURCES OF ERROR AND IMPROVEMENTS
In this lab experiment, the team examines how the rate of photosynthesis is affected by different light colors in the leafs.
Botany: Why is photosynthesis maximum in red light? …
If white light is a mixture of several wavelengths of colors and the chlorophyll in green leaves absorb energies from all visible light except green, then exposing white light to a green plants will result in the fastest rate of photosynthesis, followed by blue or red.
15/11/2016 · Firstly, your premise is incorrect
Our results show that different color lights definitely does have a strong direct correlation with the rate of photosynthesis/growth of a plant.
LIGHT ABSORPTION IN PHOTOSYNTHESIS
Absorption spectra showing how the different side chains in chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b result in slightly different absorptions of visible light.
That’s because chlorophyll is green
Therefor, the faster the rate of photosynthesis, the faster the leaves rises.
There are five matters that affect the rate of photosynthesis: light intensity, temperature, CO2, water, and the color of light in general.
This molecule is not absorb all frequencies of light the same
There are four things that are required by the plant before it can carry out photosynthesis, they are light, chlorophyll, carbon dioxide and water ....
