Exploring Photosynthesis and Plant PigmentsAbstract:In this experiment we investigated how photosynthesis provided energy forthe fixation of carbon dioxide by photosynthetic organisms.Introduction:Every living thing needs a source of outside energy. For example, animalsget their energy from the food they eat. Today we are studying plants, andhow they obtain energy. Plants perform a process called photosynthesis thatuses sunlight and converts it into energy for growth and other things. Inthis experiment we used a 0.24% and 0.12% baking soda solution andspinach leaves to test if the amount of light provided to a plant will affectthe amount of photosynthesis that takes place.Hypothesis:If we allow more light exposure to the plant, then there will be a noticeableincrease in photosynthesis occurring.Materials and Methods:This experiment requires a desk lamp, or some sort of light source for thelight treatment portion of the experiment. A 250 mL beaker was filled withpure baking soda from the provided packet. Then filled to the 250 mL markwith distilled water. Swirl the mixture until it is mostly dissolved. Then
