To differentiate the rate of photosynthesize process of Hydrilla in different light colors by using • Ingenhousz Experiment
Filament of alga
Engelmann ‘ s experiment . In 1883, Theodor W. Engelmann illuminated a filamentous alga with light that had been passed through a prism, exposing different segments of the alga to different wavelengths. He used aerobic bacteria, which concentrate near an oxygen source, to determine which segments of the alga were releasing the most O2 and thus photosynthesizing most. Bacteria congregated in greatest numbers around the parts of the alga illuminated with violet-blue or red light. Notice the close match of the bacterial distribution to the action spectrum in part b.
Light in the violet - blue and red portions of the spectrum are most effective in driving photosynthesis .
Tools and Materials
Hydrilla Reaction tube Elemenyer glass Funnel Water Colored paper:
Red Green Yellow
Prepare all tools and materials Put the Hydrilla inside the funnel in the elemenyer glass. Put the reaction tube upside down covering the mouth of funnel. Set the Hydrilla under the sunlight. Wait a few minutes until the bubbles arise. Count the bubble for the first, to fifth minutes.
Repeat the same procedures for colorcovered Hydrilla. Note to the bubble formed

The Photosynthesize Process Produce Gas it is proven by the accumulation of gas in the reaction tube. The Photosynthesize Process Runs Best in Red Light it is proven by the amount of bubble in red-covered Hydrilla in bigger in size.
