Photosynthesis Gracie Cooper Introduction Photosynthesis is very important to all life on earth. Photosynthesis is used by plants to convert energy produced by light into chemical energy. In this experiment there were two activities conducted. The hypothesis for activity one stated that the blue light would light would drive photosynthesis the most and the green light wouldn’t aid in photosynthesis at all. For activity two, the hypothesis conducted was that that metabolic poison, Sodium Azide, would kill the motility in Chlamydomonas while DCMU would allow a little movement due to the energy it already has. Methods The first activity determined what wavelength of light is most effective at driving photosynthesis. Five beakers were obtained and each labeled with the corresponding color: white, dark, red, green and blue. Next, 60 spinach leaf disks were cut and then placed into a syringe. Sodium bicarbonate solution was poured in a beaker and used to fill the syringe half way or until the spinach disks were covered. Covering
