Introduction: In this simulation, you will be looking at the production of carbon dioxide as
a plant (the waterweed) photosynthesizes. Carbon dioxide is measured in the number of
bubbles produced by the plant. Three factors that influence the rate of photosynthesis
can be adjusted in the simulator to determine how each of the factors affects the rate of

I. Effect of Light Color on the Rate of Photosynthesis

Set the simulator to 6.0 Light Level, and 6.0 CO2 Level. Adjust the colors to complete the table.

                      Number of Bubbles         1. Based on the data, what color of light results in the
Light Color
                      (Light = 6.0 | CO2 = 6.0) fastest rate of photosynthesis?
Blue                                             2. Why do you think this color of light was most
                                                 effective? ___________________________________
Colorless (white)                                ___________________________________________

II. Effect of Light Level on Photosynthesis

Set the simulator to colorless light and CO2 level to 6.0. Make adjustments to the level of light to complete
the data table. Put your speed at X5 to speed up the process.

                        Number of Bubbles                   2. Based on the data, what light
Light Level
                        (Light = Colorless | CO2 = 6.0 )    level results in the fastest rate of
2.0                                                         ___________________________

III. Effect of CO2 Level on Photosynthesis

Develop an experiment to test how the level of CO2 affects the rate of photosynthesis. Construct a data
table in the space below that shows the data you collected. Make sure to include information such as the
color of light, light intensity, level of CO2 and the amount of bubbles produced. (Use the previous
experiments as a guide)

Data Table

3. Based on the data, what level of CO2 results in the fastest rate of photosynthesis? _________________


4. Based on the simulation experiments, what factors can affect the rate of photosynthesis in a plant?

5. There is one other factor that can affect the rate of photosynthesis besides light levels (intensity), carbon
dioxide concentration, and light color? What is this factor? (Hint: it’s on the first page of notes you received
on Photosynthesis & Respiration); Hint #2: The factor can make enzymes fall apart and quit working!

5. Write the equation for photosynthesis (use your book or online resources if you don't know it).

6. What are the bubbles you are measuring in this lab? Why do the bubbles tell you how fast photosynthesis
is occurring?

7. Why is it important that you keep two variables constant (such as light level and color) while you're testing
how a third variable (CO2 Level) affects photosynthesis?
