Photosynthesis: Photosynthetic activity and pigment in S. Minima
The purpose of this experiment was to determine how short-term exposure to low
doses of copper affect the photosynthetic activity and photosynthetic pigment content in
the S. Mi
Lab Report Guidelines
1. Reports must be double-spaced, and must be written using 12-point font. Reports must have 1
inch (2.54 cm) margins on all sides (top, bottom, left, right).
2. Reports must be written in your own words; do not plagiarize any work.

Determining Solution pH
You will determine the pll (hydrogen ion concentration) of each of the solutions
that you prepared. pH is dened as the negative logarithm of the hydrogen ion
concentration (-log(H]). pOl-I (hydroxide ion Concen
