PLANNING Research Question: How does the change in temperature levels affect the amount of oxygen released? Hypothesis: The rate of photosynthesis will be slow in extreme temperatures (either too hot or too cold). Hypothesis Explanation: The change in temperature levels during the process of photosynthesis will affect the amount of oxygen released. The rate of photosynthesis can be inferred by measuring the amount of oxygen released. Therefore if in extreme temperature like too hot or too cold the amount of oxygen released would be less and so therefore the rate of photosynthesis would be slow. Background Information: Photosynthesis is a process in which plants use energy from light to produce glucose and oxygen from carbon dioxide and water. The chemical equation for photosynthesis is: CO2 + H2O  C6H12O6 + O2. (Carbon dioxide and water react to yield glucose and oxygen.) The plant for energy…show more content…
This experiment was simple and not so difficult to perform. The materials required were easily available and cheaper. The Gizmos were very user-friendly and very informative. The weaknesses were there were no exact numbers (exact temperatures only approximately) and also they Internet(Website) may not be fully reliable and also we may face problems with the Gizmos with the exact temperatures and readings. Uncertainty & Error- No significant uncertainty or error was identified. Measurements: There may have been some uncertainty in reading the temperatures and readings exactly but this was likely negligible. Constants: There were no problems in keeping the other variables constant so this was likely not a source of error or uncertainty. Improvements- To get a better answer at the research question, we may conduct actual experiment rather than using
