Q

Where does photosynthesis take place

A

Chlorophyll

2
Q

Equation for photosynthesis

A

6CO(2) +6H(2)O —-> C(6)H(12)O(6) + 6O2

Carbon dioxide +water -light-> glucose +oxygen

3
Q

What are e 6 factors of photosynthesis

A
Light intensity 
Carbon dioxide levels 
Temperature 
Amount of chlorophyll in leaf 
Water
Amount of nutrients plant had
4
Q

How do you tests leaf for starch

A

Boil in water to kill and stop any chemical reaction

Add ethanol to remove chlorophyll which turns leaf white
