Lab 4: Photosynthesis and Chromatography of Spinach Leaves
Photosynthesis and Chromatography of Spinach Leaves ..
These "Keep It Fresh" worksheets are designed to support pie-chart drawing skills. Each worksheet displays a data table reflecting some real-world context. The student is asked to summarize the data in the form of a pie chart. Students may either draw a pie chart on the printed circle (pre-ruled with 100 tick marks, each corresponding to 1%) or paste a chart they have created using technology. An answer key is included.
Lesson Plan | Photosynthesis Seen From Space
Red will have a very high photosynthetic rate
as even though it has the longest wavelength and therefore carries the
least energy it will be greatly absorbed so a lot of the light energy
will be used rater than reflected.

Water is formed from oxygen
The results validate the hypothesis
By increasing the temperature, from room temperature, it slows down the rate of photosynthesis.
Why does the rate of photosynthesis slow down?
The increased temperature that was introduced has the effect of denaturing the enzymes found in the algae.
Science | Chart Diagram - Charts, Diagrams, Graphs
Enzymes are a vital part of photosynthesis as ATP synthase, the ETCs and both Photosystems are the major components that carryout this process.
If the enzymes are denatured, they will not function properly, leading to a decreased rate of photosynthesis
If the increased temperature were to continue?
The room temperature environment was optimal for the algae to photosynthesize in, therefore live in.
Since photosynthesis provides the glucose that will be broken down, then lower rates of this process will lead to lower amounts of glucose to be converted into chemical energy in respiration.
