Tutor description

Photosynthesis is the process in which plants use light energy, water, and carbon dioxide to produce food. Plants use the food they make for growth and for carrying out other life processes. Sunlight is the natural energy source for photosynthesis. White light from the sun is a mixture of all colors of the light spectrum: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. Light can be either absorbed or reflected by substances called pigments. Most plants are green because the pigment chlorophyll reflects green and yellow light and absorbs the other colors of the spectrum. In this Virtual Lab you will perform an experiment to investigate what colors of the light spectrum cause the most plant growth. You will calculate the plant growth by measuring the height of each plant under different colors of light. You will compare these measurements and interpret a graph to determine which colors of the spectrum cause the most plant growth. Objectives: Carry out an experiment to determine which color

Aim of the experimentTo find out which color in the visible light spectrum causes the most plant growth and which color in thevisible spectrum causes the least plant growth. We know that white light is made up seven colors i.e.violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red.HypothesisIf the green and yellow light is reflected by plants and plants do not use green and yellow light forphotosynthesis and blue and red is absorbed then in the blue and red light plants grow the most.Procedurei.ii.iii.iv.v.vi.Take three plants pots.Put different quality of spinach seeds in differe
