Rate of photosynthesis

HideShow resource information
What is the word equation for photosynthesis?
Carbon dioxide + water --------> glucose + oxygen
1 of 5
What factors effect the rate of photosynthesis?
the intensity of light, volume of carbon dioxide, and the temperature as well as water to an extent
2 of 5
How does sunlight effect the rate of photosynthesis?
Light provides the energy needed for photosynthesis, so the less there is, the slower the rate of photosynthesis.
3 of 5
How does carbon dioxide effect the rate of photosynthesis?
it is one of the raw materials needed for photosynthesis. It will increase the rate of photosynthesis to a point, until there is another limiting factor.
4 of 5
How does the temperature effect the rate of photosynthesis?
the enzymes needed for photosynthesis work at a slower rate when is is cool although if it is too hot, the enzymes will become damaged.
