Photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) represents which of the following range of wavelength?
Who described the first action spectrum for photosynthesis?
In the half-leaf experiment of photosynthesis, KOH solution is used because:
KOH (Potassium Hydroxide) absorbs carbon dioxide. The leaf inside the bottle containing KOH solution does not become blue-black when compared with the leaf which is exposed to atmospheric air. This shows that carbon dioxide is necessary for photosynthesis.
Who demonstrated the importance of sunlight for the process of photosynthesis?
In the overall process of photosynthesis, the total number of CO2, water, sugar and O2 molecules utilised and produced is:
(Total molecules utilized are 18 and produced are 13. Therefore total is 31)
