2018, Accessed 16 March 2018) There are two types of photosynthetic processes; one includes oxygenic photosynthesis, which is most common and demonstrated through plants, algae and cyanobacteria while the other one is an-oxygenic photosynthesis. (From Light Energy to Chemical Energy, Accessed 08 March 2018). Products to are made through photosynthesis as glucose is transported in to the plant as soluble sugars and stored as starch which is insoluble hence it is unable to escape from the cell. Although starch is able to revert back into glucose in order to release energy by respiration both useful for fats and oils for storage through the plant, proteins for growth and repair and cellulose for their cell walls. Figure 2: Structure of a leaf (FTEXPLORING, 2014), Accessed 16 March 2018) Chlorophyll is an essential need to photosynthesis as it is able to trap both blue and red light.
 Moisture determination is an important indicator of the fertilizer 's quality. Nutrient content is dependent on the amount of moisture it contains. It is necessary to grind the sample so that fineness desired for the experiment is achieved. In this experiment, gravimetric method of analysis was used. Gravimetric analysis is a method that involves precipitating and weighing the mass to determine how much of a certain substance is present.
Differential organisms require different nutrients which show it is fairly easy to isolate and identify organisms by using selective media. Differentiation media are also used by taking advantage of whether an organism produces acid or not. MacConkey agar is an example of a differential media which will enable the organism to express a colour depending on whether it produces acid. This agar contains a pH indicator which can provide more information on the type of bacteria that is growing on the agar. Method A more detailed method is provided in the 280.201 Industrial Microbiology lab manual.
Plants and animals are connected to each other through the carbon dioxide and oxygen cycle. Plants produce oxygen, a gas that animals and other living creatures need. Animals and other living organisms produce CO2, a gas that plants need to make their own food. Without the discovery of carbon dioxide, humans would not know the essential need for it, the properties of it, and what it is capable of. Along with being essential to human life, carbon dioxide also has various other uses in today’s society.
There are many different substances available or added to the soil that can assist in plant growth. The main elements needed for plant growth are Carbon, Hydrogen, and Oxygen which the plant gets from the air and water. There are other macronutrients which include Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium which the plant either gets from decaying organic material or fertilizer.There are other minor nutrients a plant needs for growth such as Sulfur Calcium, Magnesium, Copper, and Iron. These elements are found naturally occurring or are added to fertilizer. People throughout history have used fertilizer to improve plant growth beginning with Native Americans who added a dead fish to plants coming to today where we use either chemical or organic fertilizers.
LITERATURE REVIEW Inorganic fertilizers provide rapid nutrition and give plants with the nutrients needed to grow healthy and strong. Inorganic fertilizer, also called as synthetic fertilizer, is manufactured artificially and contains minerals or synthetic chemicals and it is which help a plant to grow faster. Effective use of Inorganic Fertilizers Effectiveness in using these chemicals has good and bad effects on the environment especially on the health of a human being. Fertilizer has turn into essential to modern agriculture to feed the growing population. Use of fertilizers, especially, the chemical fertilizers has brought in blessings on humanity, which helped contain hunger and death in changed corners of the world.
The products are sugar and oxygen. Plants take carbon dioxide and water and turn it into sugar and other compounds. Sugar is produced and used by plants for its life process, like growing and reproducing. Oxygen is produced to replenish the oxygen that was used up by living things during respiration. Autotrophs make food for their own use but they make enough to support other lives as well.
Stomata are pores commonly found on the underside of leaves of a plant (stomata study). These microscopic pores are a passageway for carbon dioxide to enter while at the same time allow water and oxygen to be released (berkley). Plants need stomata as they allow the plant to take in carbon dioxide, a necessary part of photosynthesis (berkley). Plants open stomata by their guard cells located on either side of the stomata (stomata study). These cells can swell up to open the stomata or deflate to close them off (berkley) This is important because any time stomata are open the plant will lose water along with oxygen (berkley) When enough carbon dioxide has entered the stomata, a plant will close its stomata so it can preserve its water and prevent itself from drying out.
Not only that excess amount of water needs to be added as sodium can form a mixture with water and lower down the concentration of the sodium content. In addition this is also known as diffusion. • Sulfur fertilizers are also good to use in plants because it has a higher Nitrogen, Potassium, and Phosphorus including sulphur levels and they are always ready to support plants if any serious situation occurs. Sulfur fertilizer is defined as any inorganic material of wholly or partially synthetic origin that is added to soil to sustain plant
Advanced Biology Photosynthesis Lab Report By Cheryl G11 Introduction & Background Photosynthesis is the process by which light energy is converted to chemical energy. It occurs within each chloroplast in most of the green plants, and Carbon dioxide is one of the main components of this process. Plants use photosynthesis to produce their own food (glucose), some water and the oxygen that we need. The overall balanced equation is: 12 H2O+ 6 CO2 → 6 H2O+ C6H12O6 + 6 O2 Sunlight energy Where: CO2 = carbon dioxide H2O = water Light energy is required C6H12O6 = glucose O2 = oxygen Purpose Through this experiment, we want
In turn, the kidneys use the carbon dioxide and water to create or absorb bicarbonate. The lungs and kidneys work hand in hand because the lungs adjust the acid concentration quickly while the kidneys reabsorb or produce bicarbonate. What the lung and the kidney are doing for each other is termed compensation. Protein buffering is used in both intracellular and extracellular buffering. Proteins are considered negative buffers and pair well with hydrogen.
Farmers needed to create healthy crops full of nutrients, so farmers needed to come up with a way to have the healthy soil, and fast. Farmers turned to fertilizer, which contains Nitrates. Nitrates also known, as NO3 is a natural compound made of oxygen and nitrogen (Chern, 1999). Nitrates can be found in the air, soil, water, and plants (Johns & Yaremcio, 2004). Much of the nitrate in our environment comes from decomposition of plants and animal wastes (Partnership For Environmental Education and Rural Health, 2015).
Decomposers are heterotrophs and they break down waste and other materials in the Earth. It provides nutrients to the Earth and other living things. IT also provides for other plants, animals, and fungi to grow. Protists play a vital role in our lakes, rivers, and oceans. Algae is an autotrophic protists that carry oxygen-generating photosynthesis.
