Understanding the Process of Photosynthesis
Photosynthesis is the process by which chlorophyll - containing organisms - such as green plants, algae, and some bacteria - capture energy from light and convert it to chemical energy. For the process of photosynthesis to take place the organism must contain chloroplasts. Chlorophyll is responsible for the green color...

How to Solve an Equation Involving an Iteration Formula
This is a way of solving equations. An iteration formula might look like the following:xn 1 = 2   1                   xn . You are usually given a starting value, which is called x0. If x0 = 3, substitute 3 into the original equation where it says xn. This will give you x1. (This is because if n = 0, x1 = 2 1/...
