Photosynthesis is the procedure all plants go through to make food.

Importance of Photosynthesis
Photosynthesis is a process during which energy from light is harvested and used to drive synthesis of organic carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water, generating oxygen. Photosynthesis is the only way that radiant energy from the sun can be converted into organic molecules for plants and animals to consume.

Light Absorption for Photosynthesis - HyperPhysics …

What Is Photosynthesis? From Light Energy to Chemical …

I believe this will happen because when the light source is nearer to the plant more of the plants surface area is coming in to contact with the light from the desk lamp therefore more photosynthesis will occur which will mean more oxygen will be produced which will create more bubbles....

Photosynthesis - definition of photosynthesis by The …

Participants in Photosynthesis
Chloroplasts are organelles specialized for photosynthesis. Inside chloroplasts are chlorophyll, proteins which can absorb light. Photosystems are many proteins together which can gather and amplify light energy. NADPH is an energy carrier in plants and ATP synthase produces the ATP.

Photosynthesis requires the following resources; Carbon Dioxide, Water and light.

Why the rate of Photosynthesis is higher in red light …


I predicted that the smaller the distance between the plant and the
sauce of light, the greater would be the rate of photosynthesis.

Factors that affect photosynthesis

If a plant gets more light, carbon dioxide, water or a higher
temperature, then it might be able to photosynthesise at a faster

The Effect of Light on Photosynthesis :: Papers - …

Therefore the closer the light source is to the plant,
the greater will be the intensity of the light and so the chlorophyll
within the plant will be able to photosynthesise at a faster rate.

New light shed on photosynthesis -- ScienceDaily

Photosynthesis is a process where by energy from light is harvested and used to drive synthesis of organic carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water. Photosynthesis takes place in chloroplasts and can be divided into two steps: light reactions which require light and dark reactions which do not require light. During light reaction, light energy is captured by photosystems and electrons are transferred among the electron receptors. ATP and NADPH are generated. During dark reactions, CO2 is fixed using ATP and NADPH generated by the light reactions and organic carbohydrates are synthesized via the Calvin Cycle. When the CO2 is first fixed into a 3 carbon compound 3PGA, it is called C3 pathways and these plants are called C3 plants. The disadvantage of C3 plants is that they undergo photorespiration and thus waste some energy gained in light reactions. C4 cycle is the pathway adopted by C4 plants to bypass photorespiration.

As out lined in the introduction, light is essential for the process of photosynthesis.

The definition of photosynthesis is the process through which plants use water and carbon dioxide to create their food, grow and release excess oxygen into the air.

Evaluation: For my experiment, I had to find out whether light affects the rate of photosynthesis.

Light Intensity and Rate of Photosynthesis (Carol …

Therefore, the more
the light that is available to the green plant, the greater will be
the rate of photosynthesis and so more glucose and oxygen will be

From my results I obtained, I found that light does affect photosynthesis.

The Light Reactions of Photosynthesis

The existence of light is esational
for this process, as the following equation shows:
