The graph shows the outcomes of a classroom investigation into the factors influencing the rate of photosynthesis. The variable investigated was either light intensity or CO2 concentration.
problem 1: Propose an appropriate plant for such an investigation.
problem 2: How was the rate of the photosynthesis measured?
problem 3: Name a factor which must be kept constant throughout this investigation.
problem 4: Describe how you would keep constant the factor referred to in (3).
problem 5: Why is it essential to keep that factor constant?
problem 6: What happens to the rate of photosynthesis at X when the investigation is:
a) Carried out at 25oC?
b) Carried out at 35oC?
Give a reason for each of the answer.
