Photosynthesis & Respiration Lab What is the relationship between photosynthesis and respiration?
Part 1 Investigative Question: What will happen to a carbon dioxide solution of CO 2 and water if a water plant is added? Write your hypothesis: If _______________ then__________ because__________________________. *Get signed off by your teacher
Materials Test tubes x 4 Stoppers x4 Elodea (2cm) Foil Test tube rack Bromothymol Blue Lamp
The Acid-Base Scale & Bromthymol Blue Most leastleastmost Acidic Neutral Basic Water CO 2 in water No CO 2 in water, Regular tap water Distilled water
Protocol 1.Label your test tubes with your names and the letters A, B, C, and D. 2.Fill each 1/2 full with distilled water. 3.Add 1 dropper of acid/base indicator (bromothymol blue) A B C D Per5Per5 Per5 Per5 NameNameName Name
4.Place a straw into Test Tube A. 5.Gently blow into the solution until it starts to turn yellow- STOP IMMEDIATELY when you see a change in color!!! STOP! A A
6.Repeat Steps 4 & 5 for all test tubes& place 1 sprig of elodea into test tubes A & C. A B C D Per5Per5 Per5 Per5 NameNameName Name
7. Then place stoppers on all test tubes. A B C D Per5Per5 Per5 Per5 NameNameName Name
8. Wrap Test Tubes C & D with foil so that no light can get in. A B C D Per5 Per5 Name NameName Name
9. Place all test tubes on a test tube rack or holder and place in the tray that will go under a light. A B C D Per5 Per5 Name NameName Name
Predictions: Test Tube Color after 24 hours pH = ?Why do you think this? A B C D
Original Data Table Test Tube Color start (pH = 6-, 7, 8+) Color after 24 hours (pH = 6-, 7, 8+) A B C D
Class Results: Color (pH) changes for Day 1 GroupTube ATube BTube CTube D Mode:
Part 1- Data Collection 1.Observe the results after hrs. 2.Record data on data table.
Part 2 Investigative question: What is the role of light in photosynthesis? What might happen if the tinfoil was switched to test tubes A & B? Write your hypothesis: If _______________ then__________ because__________________________. *Get signed off by your teacher
Identify the following in this inquiry: The manipulated variable _____________ Responding variable_________________ Controlled variables _________________ ____________________ Experimental control _________________ Purpose of the experimental control _____ __________________________________ *Get teacher signature
10. Wrap Test Tubes A & B with the foil so that no light can get in. C D A B Per5 Per5 Name NameName Name
11. Place all test tubes on a test tube rack or holder and place in the tray that will go into the greenhouse. C D A B Per5 Per5 Name NameName Name
Part 2 Data Table: pH after light/dark conditions reversed Test Tube Color after hours pH = ?Why? A B C D
Part 2 – Data Collection Record your results in your data table.
Analysis Questions Part 1: 1.Explain what happened to the pH of the solution for Test tube A. Why did you get these results? 2.How were these results different than test tube B? Why? 3.How were they different than C? Why? 4.And D? Why?
Analysis Questions Part 2 & 3: 1.What results changed as a result of switching the foil on the test tubes? 2.Why do you think this happened? 3.What is the role of light in photosynthesis? 4.Can plants do respiration? What evidence supports this? 5.What changes would you make to improve this lab and why?
