Explain the required practical of light intensity in photosynthesis?
As the light intensity increases the number of bubbles per minute increases showing that the rate of photosynthesis has increased.

What is oxygen debt?
The build up of lactic acid. When the exercise is over lactic acid has to be broken down to produce carbon dioxide and water. The amount of oxygen needed to break down the lactic acid is known as oxygen debt.
