Light and Photosynthesis Introduction Methodology Results and discussion Summary and Conclusions

Photosynthesis

Uses photons to eject electrons from the trap molecules in photosystems I and II Thus, the presence of light affects photosynthesis

Light and Photosynthesis Introduction Methodology Results and discussion Summary and Conclusions

Methodology

2 experiments…
1. Hydrilla setup

2. Coleus setup

Hydrilla setup

Bubbles came out from the shoot when the setup was exposed to bright light

Coleus setup

Pigments being extracted using 95% ethanol Coleus leaf starts to lose its greenish color

Coleus setup

IKI dropped to the coleus sample IKI is an indicator for the presence of starch

Coleus sample

Results and Discussions
Coleus setup  Bluish coloration on the uncovered leaf was greater compared to that of the covered leaf Hydrilla setup  Bubbles were released upon exposure to sunlight

Hydrilla graph

The number of bubbles seems to be diminishing as time passes by Dissolved CO2 may have been used up No evidence (bubbles) for the occurrence of photosynthesis in dim light

Summary and Conclusion

Light is needed in photosynthesis
