B4-Rate of photosynthesis

HideShow resource information

Rate of photosynthesis

There are three factors that affect the rate of photosynthesis

(1)Amount of light-At night its pretty obvious that there is not much light

(2)Amount of CO2-If its warm enough and bright enough,the amount of CO2 is decreased

(3)Temperature-In  winter the temperature is cold

(1) Not enough light slows down the rate of photosynthesis

(1)Light provides the energy needed for photosynthesis.

(2) As the light level is raised,the rate of photosynthesis  increases steadily -but only to a certain point

(3)Beyond that it was,it wont make any difference because then it'll be either the temperature or the CO2 level which…
