How light intensity affects the rate of photosynthesis The aim of my experiment was to determine whether intensity of light would affect the rate of photosynthesis in a plant. To do this, I placed a piece of Canadian pondweed in varying light intensities, and observed the amount of oxygen being given off. I used Canadian pondweed because of its unusual quality of giving off bubbles of gas from a cut end, when placed in water. Introduction Photosynthesis occurs only in the presence of light, and takes place in the chloroplasts...
repeat readings and find

an average. To extend my enquiries into the rate of photosynthesis, I

could perhaps try to link in some of the other limiting factors to the

same experiment, as well as investigating them in their own right. It

could also be interesting to explore the effects of coloured lights on the

rate of photosynthesis, which could lead to the question of whether or not

other types of light, such as fluorescent lights or halogen lights, would

have a different effect on the rate of photosynthesis.
