An Experiment to Help Identify the Different Leaf Pigments
Introduction: Photosynthesis, by definition, is “the process by which plants, algae, and some bacteria transform light energy to chemical energy stored in the bonds of sugars. This process requires an input of carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) and produces oxygen gas (O2) as a waste product” (1). Although photosynthes...
