  • Light Energy Into Chemical Energy
    637 words
    PHOTOSYNTHESIS INFORMATION: The Nature of Light Light behaves both as a wave phenomenon and as discrete particles of energy called photons. If we look at light as a wave phenomenon, we can assign it a wavelength (the distance from one peak of the wave to the next) and an amplitude (the distance the wave oscillates from its centerline). Different wavelengths of light have different characteristic energies and properties. Light can also travel at various speeds in different media, producing a freq...
  • External Photoelectric Effect
    376 words
    Photoelectric Effect Photoelectric Effect is the formation and liberation of electrically charged particles in matter, usually metals, when it is irradiated by light or other electromagnetic radiation. The term photoelectric effect designates several types of interactions. In the external photoelectric effect, electrons are liberated from the surface of a metallic conductor by absorbing energy from light shining on the metal's surface. This is the form that we generally associate photoelectric e...
  • Kinetic Energy Of The Electron
    1,528 words
    Introduction The Quantum Theory was the second of two theories which drastically changed the way we look at our physical world today, the first being Einstein " theory of Relativity. Although both theories revolutionized the world of physics, the Quantum Theory required a period of over three decades to develop, while the Special Theory of Relativity was created in a single year. The development of the Quantum Theory began in 1887 when a German physicist, Heinrich Hertz, was testing Maxwell's Th...
  • Electric Potential Difference Across The Led Leads
    855 words
    Q: What is LED (Light Emitting Diode)? A: LED (Light Emitting Diode) is the most commonly used backlight for Cellular phones. The LED backlight offers some benefits over the EL backlight. To start, the LED backlight does not require an inverter, just a DC source of +3 VDC~+5 VDC. Secondly, depending on the backlight configuration, the brightness can very bright, and thirdly, the life of the LED exceeds 50 K hours. web FAQS. asp#17 Abbreviation of light emitting diode, an electronic device that l...
  • Light Intensity The Rate Of Photosynthesis
    2,155 words
    Biology Coursework! V Does The Light Intensity Affect the Rate of Photosynthesis The Investigation In this experiment I will investigate the affect in which the light intensity will have on a plants photosynthesis process. This will be done by measuring the bubbles of oxygen and having a bulb for the light intensity variable. Variables The input variable which will be used in this investigation will be the light intensity (this will be a 100 Watt bulb being moved closer and further away from the...
  • Ultra Violet Light
    487 words
    The Luminescence of Black Light Black Light. What is it? It is a portion of the Ultra-Violet Spectrum that is invisible to our eyes. We can not distinguish it. However, when this radiation impinges on certain materials visible light is emitted and this is known as 'fluorescence. ' Fluorescence is visible to the human eye, in that it makes an object appear to 'glow in the dark. ' There are several sources of ultra-violet light. These sources are: the sun, carbon arcs, mercury arcs, and black ligh...
  • Process Of Photosynthesis
    415 words
    Process of Photosynthesis Photosynthesis is process by which plants containing chlorophyll make carbohydrates from water and carbon dioxide in the air in the presence of light. Green plants and certain other organisms use the energy of light to convert carbon dioxide and water into the simple sugar glucose. Photosynthesis provides the basic energy source for virtually all organisms. An extremely important byproduct of photosynthesis is oxygen, on which most organisms depend. Photosynthesis has f...
  • Light Energy
    943 words
    LIGHT: A FUNDAMENTAL FORCE IN OUR WORLD If asked what light is, one could say that it's one of the most basic elements of our world and our universe as we perceive it. It is through sight that we receive 90% of our information. It is through the use of telescopes aiding the naked eye that we are aware of the heavenly bodies around us. It is through light that the energy from the sun is transferred to us. The sun's energy supports the food chain; plants use it to turn water and CO 2 into energy u...
  • Chloroplasts And The Decrease Of Light
    1,132 words
    Introduction: This experiment was done to test the hypothesis: Boiling and decrease in light will have negative affects on the rate of photosynthesis in chloroplasts. In this experiment we were told that we would be measuring the rate of photosynthesis. The reduction of a dye called DPIP is a part of the measurement technique. The transfer of electrons during the light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis reduce DPIP, changing it from light blue to colorless. The information on the lab sheet sa...
  • Active And The Northern Lights
    2,124 words
    The Northern lights are poetry, they are nature's light show, and they are quantum leaps in the oxygen atom. They are elementary particle physics, superstition, mythology and fairy tales. The northern lights have filled people with wonder and inspired artists; they have frightened people to think that the end is at hand. More exact explanations of the phenomenon could not be given until modern particle physics were developed, and knowledge about details in the earth's magneto sphere has been bas...
  • Light Dependent Reaction
    494 words
    Photosynthesis is a biochemical process in which plant, algae, and some bacteria harness the energy of light to produce food. Nearly all living things depend on energy produced from photosynthesis for their nourishment, making it vital to life on Earth. It is also responsible for producing the oxygen that makes up a large portion of the Earth's atmosphere. Factors that affect photosynthesis are light intensity and wave length, carbon dioxide concentration, and temperature. Plants are autotrophs ...
  • Energy Source
    571 words
    Alternate Energy Resources As most people know our energy supply is slowly running out. We are using energy sources that either pollute the air, take up natural resources or cause damage to other forms of life. Today, we are working on other forms of energy that do not pollute or cause harm to the environment. Here are some: Magnetohydrobynamic Power Magnetohydrobynamic power is where created by plasma. One way is for gases are heated to really high temperature to where the form plasma. They are...
  • Light Reactions
    661 words
    By Gerard Chretien Biology Photosynthesis: Energy from the Sun Identifying Photosynthetic Reactants And Products A. The water for photosynthesis in land plants comes primarily from the soil and must travel from the roots to leaves. B. Carbon dioxide is taken in, and water and O 2 are released, through tiny openings in leaves, called stroma ta. C. Light is absolutely necessary for the production of oxygen and carbohydrate. The photosynthetic production of oxygen by green plants is an important so...

  • Columns Of The Light Pulse Transformers
    900 words
    The source is a nine volt battery. I'm creating energy by using light pulse transformers... columns of light pulse transformers... The timing is so that the base wire is a constant current. The columns of the light pulse transformers are in a circle all going to the same base wire. They fire like timed pistons in a car engine and are timed by previous pulses heading toward it. Each pulse travels through previous light pulse transformers to get to the last light pulse transformer to reach the bas...
  • Distance Of My Lamp To The Weed
    982 words
    Classwork Wednesday, 08 October 2003 Photosynthesis Exploration Aim - To see how changing the light intensity affects the rate of photosynthesis. Prediction - I predict that as the amount of light is reduced (lamp steadily being moved away), the rate of photosynthesis will slow down. Consequently the nearer the lamp is to the plant, the more oxygen bubbles are produced. Hypothesis - The reason I predicted that if the amount of light is reduced the rate of photosynthesis will slow down is because...
  • Light Intensity 1 D 2 This
    3,657 words
    AIM- To identify the factors affecting the rate of photosynthesis and, choosing one factor, to ascertain the effects it has. Photosynthesis is an endothermic reaction that occurs in plants, by which plants use light energy to make glucose. It needs energy from the photons of light and it is their anabolic effect on the plant that gives the energy for the reaction to take place. During this process carbon dioxide combines with water to from glucose, and oxygen is released. The glucose made then h...
