what each part of the chloroplast does.The process of photosynthesis consists of two sets of chemical reactions called the light reaction and the dark reaction.
The chloroplasts that were boiled had little photosynthesis occurring and the chloroplast that was not exposed to light also had little photosynthesis occurring.
are the tiny structures in plant cells where photosynthesis happens. Chloroplasts contain , a green pigment that absorbs light energy for photosynthesis. However, chloroplasts are not found in all plant cells. For example, they are not found in . These cells absorb the water needed by the plant for photosynthesis. However, since they are usually underground and in the dark, they are unable to photosynthesise anyway.
Variables: The variables that might affect the rate of photosynthesis in this experiment are: Temperature: When the temperature rises so does the rate of photosynthesis; this is because as the temperature around the plant rises the enzymes controlling photosynthesis inside the chloroplasts heat up and start moving around faster, the fast moving molecules collide with other fast moving enzymes causing them to react....
Our experiment was designed to determine whether boiling and decrease in light will have negative effects on the rate of photosynthesis in chloroplasts.
Our results confirm with our predictions because by looking at the cuvette that had boiled chloroplast you see that it did not have a lot of photosynthesis occurring neither did the chloroplast that received no light.
Photosynthesis and the Importance of Chloroplasts
Photosynthesis Part Two: The Chloroplast
Photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplast.
So Why is Chloroplast Important?
The Process of Photosynthesis
Photosynthesis is the process by which plants use sunlight to make energy and food from carbon dioxide and water.
