studies of light colour on the rate of photosynthesis.
Deep red light is the most efficient in terms of simple photosynthesis, but not to the huge extent usually claimed, and plants grown only in red light get leggy and overly lush.
EFFECT OF COLOURS OF LIGHT ON PHOTOSYNTHESIS
One of the variables commonly investigated in photosynthesis experiments is to measure the effect of light intensity on the rate.
6CO + 6H O ® C H O + 12O (in the presence of light energy and chlorophyll) Aim- The aim of the experiment is to determine what effect light intensity has upon the rate of photosynthesis of Canadian Pondweed (Elodea)....
