Enzymes are very large and complex organic molecules that are synthesized by the cell to perform very specific functions. These biological catalysts are important because they speed up the rate of the reaction they catalyze that would otherwise be too slow to support life. Catalase is an enzyme present in the cells of plants, animals and aerobic (oxygen requiring) bacteria. It promotes
The purpose of this experiment was to compare the dehydration rate of plant and animal cells exposed to anhydrous ammonia.
The information gained from this experiment could help people preserve food. Also it will help with food transportation because dehydration cuts down the weight by taking away the moisture. This could also help space travel.
Ten (10) students say the top of the leaf takes in gases because when rain and watering cans water plants it comes from above and hits the top of the plant leaves first. Ten (10) say the bottom of the leaf takes in gases because after observing the leaves from each plant the bottom of the leaves were more veiny and the skin of the bottom leaves seemed thinner. The top of the plant leaf had
This experiment was performed to ascertain the effect of aquatic plants on the acidity levels of our oceans. Carbon dioxide levels in our atmosphere have been on the rise mainly due to the burning of fossil fuel and deforestation. The results of this experiment will ascertain whether aquatic plants help to reduce the acidification of our oceans, via the process of photosynthesis.
The roots with the plant hormone Rootone under the greenhouse effect will grow the fastest because the Rootone is supposed to help roots grow quickly, and the greenhouse effect will keep the plants warm and moist.
We are going to investigate the affects of two of those hormones on the growth of radish seeds. This experiment will also investigate the phenomenon of geotropism. A tropism is a growth response of a plant to an environmental influence. Phototropism is the typical growth of plants toward light that most of you have seen. This phenomenon is introduced in your textbook where the discovery of plant
