The ability of bicarbonate ion (hco 3-) to stimulate photosynthetic oxygen evolution in maize chloroplast fragments exposed to continuous light depends on light intensity stimulation by hco 3 - is less at low intensities. Hypothesis: the leaf disks placed in the water solution with sodium bicarbonate will float to the top faster and in a higher quantity because the sodium bicarbonate will serve as a source of carbon dioxide for photosynthesis. The product contains (in powder form) potassium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate, potassium glycinate, and sodium bicarbonate each serving (about ¼ tsp) contains about 300 mg of bicarbonate, 260 mg of carbonate, 142 mg of potassium, 105 mg of magnesium, 48 mg of sodium, and 100 mg of glycine. Photosynthesis experiments using leaf discs objectives: photosynthesis, carbon dioxide is synthesized into glucose using chemical bond energy stored in atp and the buffer is 01 m nahco3 (01 moles [84 g] of sodium bicarbonate, or baking soda, dissolved in 1 liter of water) the buffer has already had most of the dissolved gasses. Rates of photosynthesis comparisons hypothesis: if you collect the disks from a lemon leaf and a spinach leaf and submerge them into a solution of sodium bicarbonate to test out their rates of photosynthesis, then the spinach leaf disks will photosynthesize faster by rising to the surface in a shorter amount of time than the lemon leaf disks.
Bicarbonate ion serves as the carbon source for photosynthesis as photosynthesis proceeds oxygen is released into the interior of the leaf which changes the buoyancy‐‐causing the disks to rise. Photosynthesis is the process by which green plants and some other organisms use sunlight to synthesize nutrients from carbon dioxide and water photosynthesis in plants generally involves the green pigment chlorophyll and generates oxygen as a by-product. Hypothesis: if there is an increase in concentration of sodium bicarbonate the amount of oxygen produced will increase because the sodium bicarbonate concentration will increase the carbon dioxide levels. 2 photosynthesis in leaf discs 1 using a one-hole punch, each group will cut 15 leaf disks from young actively growing leaves 2 in the 50 ml beaker, add about 30 ml of a 1% solution of sodium bicarbonate.

When sodium bicarbonate is added to the this lab examines photosynthesis using an inquiry approach should be placed after basic concepts of photosynthesis have been covered this lab examines how light intensity (a variable) affects the rate of floating leaf disk assay author. The hypothesis tested was “when the leaf discs are placed in a more concentrated sodium bicarbonate solution (%) the rate of photosynthesis (sec) will increase” leaf discs were placed in syringes where the air was expelled. Use this method to show that photosynthesis occurs in leaf disks in a solution of sodium bicarbonate, but not in water you may prefer to use 03%-05% sodium bicarbonate which will result in a faster rate of suggests useful ways to discuss the meaning of terms such as hypothesis, procedure, variables. Conclusion the hypothesis that the leaves in the sodium bicarbonate solution would produce a faster photosynthesis rate is proved to be correct as more leaves floated to the top in less time than the leaves in the water-only solution.
H2co3 h2o + co2 7 100% sodium bicarbonate solution5% sodium bicarbonate solution more carbon dioxide is available for photosynthesis5% sodium bicarbonate solution the rate of photosynthesis in 5% sodium bicarbonate solution is higher than it does in 3. A bicarbonate ion is one of the carbon sources for photosynthesis as photosynthesis begins, oxygen is released into the interior of the leaf this alters the buoyancy again, making the leaf disks float again. Ap biology investigation on photosynthesis includes background information and instructions for using spinach leaf disks, light, and baking soda to measure the rate of photosynthesis specific instructions are included for measuring the rate of photosynthesis in relation to light and carbon availability. Students measure the rate of photosynthesis using leaf disks the equipment and supplies needed are inexpensive, simple, and readily available this activity is great for stimulating additional student projects photosynthesis and floating leaf disks steve binkley sodium bicarbonate or baking soda.
Hypothesis if the bicarbonate is added, then the rate of photosynthesis will increase materials 1 baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) 2 liquid soap (approximately 5 ml of dishwashing soap in 250 ml of water) 3 2 plastic syringes without needed (10 ml or larger) 4. How does the rate of photosynthesis change when sodium bicarbonate is added to the water conclusions: plants use green pigments called chlorophylls to trap light energy the chlorophylls give a plant its green color inside the cells that have. Hypothesis= if you add 10 uniform sized spinach leaf disks into a solution with bicarbonate concentration and just water, then the disks in the concentration of sodium bicarbonate will float up faster because there is no co2 naturally in water, so they'll have a higher rate of photosynthesis.
The problem with et50 is that it goes down as the rate of photosynthesis goes up- -it is an inverse relationship and creates the following type of graph (data from steucek, et al 1985). This activity is a lab where students design an experiment to test the rate of photosynthesis students will analyze data,write a report using the scientific method, and apply results to current environmental issues. It is then titrated against 001 n sodium thiosulphate in both the cases using 05 ml of 05 % starch solution till the blue colour disappears oxygen concentration in both the cases is calculated during titration starch indicator should be used when a straw colour of the solution appears on titration with na 2 s 2 o 3.
