1

Carbon Dioxide + water = (with light and chlorophyll)

Glucose + oxygen

2

6CO(^2) + 6H(^2)O =

C(^6)H(^12)O(^6) + 6O(^2)

3

Photosynthesis is:

Exothermic

4

Five ways plants use glucose:

1. Respiration
2. Making cellulose for new cell walls
3. Making amino acids to make protein with
4. Stored as oils/fats (lipase)
5. Stored as starch

5

Starch is:

Insoluble

6

3 limiting factors:

Light, temperature, carbon dioxide levels

7

1 extra possible limiting factor (just in case):

Chlorophyll (affected by disease)

8

For how long do the limiting factors affect photosynthesis:

From 0=0 to a certain point when other factors will now affect it more

9

What is the optimum temperature for photosynthesis:

40*C

10

What happens if the temperature is too low for photosynthesis:

The enzymes move slower so photosynthesis is slower

11

What is the inverse square law:

Light intensity is proportional to 1 over the distance squared
