The first leaf came out after about two weeks of planting in process. Non-radiated and radiated seeds were planted in separate pots. Irradiated leaves were rapid in growth in the starting weeks. When the leaves came out completely they had visible difference between the irradiated leaves. In the third week the leaves were more prominent and healthier compared to the radiated seeds which were very slow and unhealthy growth. This shows that in the start the growth was rapid in the radiated seeds comparatively and slower later on. Therefore, the hypothesis was proven to be right which stated if seeds had extensive exposure to radiation yielded an abnormal growth. Some uncertainties that might have occurred during the experiment would be; increase in water level and/or more exposure to light. In addition, the greenhouse effect that was created during the plantation with the help of the clear plastic wrap had slowed down the growth. By the fourth week, there were 14 leaves in total of almost of equal lengths in the non radiated pot and the radiated pot had very few leaves compared to the non radiated. In the end we saw a baby radish sprouting from the non radiated leaves.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
