TD Khang 2/13/12 Introduction Photosynthesis is the process by which plants use solar energy and convert it into energy for the plant to feed off of. There are certain reactants that must be present in order for photosynthesis to occur. In order photosynthesize, water, carbon dioxide and light must be present. The following equation shows the reaction of photosynthesis: The main products in photosynthesis are oxygen and carbohydrates. Photosynthesis occurs in the chloroplasts of plant cells. Most of the absorption of sunlight occurs in the thylakoid membranes in chloroplasts. Carbohydrate formation occurs in the stroma of the chloroplasts. Photosynthetic rates can be enhanced or hindered based upon environmental factors or experimental factors. Some important factors that affect photosynthesis are pH, temperature, amount of sunlight, and more. In this experiment, the amount of chloroplasts in solution will be tested to determine the amount needed for photosynthesis to occur quickest. Based upon results
