    Let There Be Light Introduction When we look at the sun, what do we see Other than to squint our eyes and put your sunglasses on, you can see that the light is very bright and white-yellow in color. However, looking at light through a prism relates a different story. If Light is put up against a prism it is refracted or bent into a rainbow which contains the primary colors of light in which red light bends the least and violet bends the most (Jude, 1999). The primary colors of light consist of r...
  • Photosynthesis Animals That Eat

    Photosynthesis When you and me eat, we find our food. When plants eat, they make their own food and energy. They make their food and energy through a process called photosynthesis. Through photosynthesis oxygen is also produced. Photosynthesis is 'a process in which green plants synthesize carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water... The reverse of this reaction provides energy for plants, for animals that eat plants, for animals that eat animals that eat plants' for animals that eat animals ...

    Life science 7 th grade Jr high Chapter 1 Plants are the basis of the food pyramid for all living things, even other plants. They have always been very important to people, not only for food, but also for clothing, weapons, tools, dyes, medicines, shelter and a great many other purposes. Both humans and animals benefit from plants. We eat many different types of plants such as fruits and vegetables. We also use plants for our herbs. Plants are also used to manufacture many different products su...
  • Pea Plant Plants Mendel Traits
    1,350 words
    We have known for centuries that traits are passed from parents to offspring. What has not always been understood is how traits are determined. One explanation that appealed to scientist for many centuries was that traits of parents were blended, or mixed in offspring. The blending hypothesis accounted for many observable traits and was widely accepted for many years. However, the idea of blending could not account for the appearance of unexpected traits in some offspring. It was not until scien...

    Effect of Intra specific Competition on the Biomass and Height of Helianthus AnnuusAbstract: The purpose of this experiment was to study the biomass and stem length of Helianthus plants growing in an intra specific competitive environment compared to Helianthus growing in an isolated environment. I hypothesized that increased competition would limit the amount of nutrition available to each plant and thus effect the growth potential. A total of 24 plants, 6 to each pot were grown for ten weeks u...
  • Nuclear Powernuclear Power Plants Electricity Fission
    366 words
    Nuclear Power Most of the world's electricity is generated by either thermal or hydroelectric power plants. Thermal power plants use fuel to boil water which makes steam. The steam turns turbines that generate electricity. Hydroelectric power plants use the great force of rushing water from adam or a waterfall to turn the turbines. The majority of thermal power plants burn fossil fuels because thermal power plants are cheaper to maintain and have to meet less of the governments requirements comp...

    Chem. Com. Project Linsey Borgess Nuclear Power has its advantages and disadvantages. However it is a lot safer than most people think. The chances of a meltdown or a radiation leak are extremely small. There are many safety features, which make nuclear power one of the safest electricity sources. And every nuclear power plant is protected with thick layers of steel and concrete. Nuclear power is also very environmentally friendly. It produces hardly any air pollution, and it releases less radi...
  • Advantages Of Producing Crops Through Use Of Hydroponics
    310 words
    Advantages of Producing Crops Through Use of Hydroponics HYDROPONICS derives its name from the Greek HYDRO-PONO S meaning water / labor. Literally, 'Hydroponics' means 'Water Work.' There is no soil in a hydroponic garden. No organic matter is present so nourishment (Nutrient) is not available to the plants in the same was as it is in a soil garden. Instead, nutrients are added to the water. So, as plants are watered, they are also fed. There are many ways to feed and water plants. The method c...
  • Plant Life Plants Terrestrial Water
    952 words
    The kingdom Plantae encompasses water-dwelling red and green algae as well as terrestrial plants, which have evolved to support themselves outside of the aquatic environment of their ancestors. This Spark Note focuses on the terrestrial plants, which include bryophytes (mosses) as well as the more highly evolved vascular plants, called tracheophytes. As a consequence of their move onto land, terrestrial plants require structures that support their weight, prevent desiccation (drying out), aid in...
  • Plant Hormone Plants Growth Hormones

    I. Title: PLANT HORMONE #5 II. Introduction As humans need hormones to develop or function some organs plants need hormones to growth and develop. There are more than 40 hormones which are also called GIBBERELLINGS. III. Materials Needed 1) Dwarf pea seedlings 2) Normal pea seeding 3) H 2 O 4) seeds: corn, sun flower, pea, 5) IAA 6) 0. 1 mg/L, 10 mg/L, 100 mg/L IV. Summarize The experiment will show us and also help us to understand the effect of hormones in plants. V. Observations. A. The fun...

    How Tall can Your Fast Plant Grow? Procedure: During the fast plant life cycle many things were taken into account. The plants all started out as a seed. Data was collected every Tuesday and Thursday after class. The kind of quantitative data that was collected was the height of each plant on the days that we would go in and check them. The qualitative data that was collected was our drawings of the plants. We were able to add details to the pictures. The purpose of this experiment was to be ab...
  • Biology Of Plant Air Temperature
    592 words
    I believe that some plants produce as much heat for their weight as birds do, which are the greatest heat producers of all. It is even harder to believe that some are able to thermo regulate, which means that they actually alter their heat production to keep their temperature constant in fluctuating air temperatures. This is similar to what mammals do. The article I am reviewing tells about few a plants that do this, and how they do it. There are only three plants which have yet been shown to re...

    'Plants As We See Them Plants are all around us, renowned for their aesthetic appeal; their colours and structures lend themselves to decoration. Plants are used in celebrations and commiserations and are often celebrated in their own right- the annual Michigan potato festival being a good example. Plants are associated with national identity. The Scottish thistle; Irish Shamrock; Welsh leeks and daffodils. Many national flags feature plants, the Cedar tree on the Lebanese flag, and the Maple le...

  • Compare Nutrient Acquisition By Fungi And Plants
    628 words
    Upon considering nutrition the primary factor to take into consideration is the metabolic strategy of the organism in question. Fungi are heterotrophic, obtaining both carbon and energy from organic compounds; they are chemo-organotrophs. Plants are autotrophic, they obtain their carbon from atmospheric CO 2 and their energy from light; they are photolithotrophs. The nutritional requirement of the organism is thus dictated by its nutritional strategies, this essay will concern itself with the co...

    Grasslands emit greenhouse gas 20 August 2008 Chinese researchers have found further evidence that plants emit significant quantities of methane - a potent greenhouse gas. But the latest findings also show that methane emissions depend not just on the species of plant, but the conditions in which they are growing. Frank Keppler, from the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, Heidelberg, Germany, first claimed in January 2006 that the world's plants, previously seen as a greenhouse gas sink t...
