How Does Light Intensity Affect the Rate of Photosynthesis?
Another thing that was not very suitable was the way of measuring the rate of reaction. Counting the bubbles got very boring and I could easily have miscounted, leading to anomalous results. A better way would be to find some way of collecting the oxygen bubbles in a capillary tube and measuring how far along the oxygen goes. We would have to fill the capillary tube with water and seal the top, and attach the tube to the pondweed. Although fiddly this would be more reliable.
There were no anomalous results, but if there were there are many reasons why it could be. For a start, I could have miscounted the bubbles. Also, the pondweed might not have been bubbling properly due to an air lock that I did not notice. Similarly, there might not have been enough sodium hydrogen carbonate solution, which provides carbon dioxide for the plant. Also, there is the possibility that the piece of pondweed used was damaged - for example perhaps it had been heated up too much and the chlorophyll had become denatured. Because there were no anomalies, this supports my prediction in that they were reliable.
