Lab Section 66 3 April 2008 Discussion The experiment conducted to determine the rate of photosynthesis on pea plants, in the presence of light and without light, showed that the amount of light being applied to the plant affected the rate of photosynthesis. This was apparent after collecting data and observing the fluctuations of Carbon Dioxide levels in the containers which harbored the pea plants. To illustrate, when light was applied to the pea plant container, the Carbon Dioxide levels slightly declined when using the Carbon Dioxide gas sensor. This indicated that photosynthesis was also at a low level of activity in the pea plants. On the other hand, when light was subtracted out of the experimental chamber, making the pea plant reside in total darkness, the Carbon Dioxide levels contrastingly had risen in comparison to the pea plant which had light directed upon it. This proved that photosynthesis was occurring more rapidly because of the high levels of Carbon Dioxide which were present.
