Through reading various books and web pages it was made clear that carbon dioxide is definitely one of the raw materials needed for photosynthesis, but I wanted to see whether this is actually true and if carbon dioxide is taken away completely will the plant photosynthesize at all.
In the first
week of the experiment the plants in the dark grew more than those in
the light as they were growing to try and find the light they need for
Some of this water becomes (temporarily) incorporated into the cells
have a vast surface area of leaves to catch enough sunlight for photosynthesis and these leaves need carbon dioxide which is
reacted with water to form the organic building blocks of the plant's cells, using the energy harnessed by sunlight.
For photosynthesis to occur, plants need: · Light energy from the sun · Chlorophyll to absorb light energy · Carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and from respiration in plant cells · Water which is absorbed by the roots and transported to the leaves by the xylem tubes....
The further away the light, the slower the oxygen bubbles will be produced so the less light the less photosynthesis will occur which is needed for the plant to make food....
