Light and water

When light and water are absorbed by the plant, four light photons are assigned to Photosystem II while the energy is channeled to P680. This energy triggers the P680 molecule to release four electrons toward an electron acceptor in the thylakoid membrane. To fill up the “hole” in the P680 molecule, it will strongly attract… View Article

Relative Intensities of Light at Various Horizontal Distances from the Lamp

The objective of this experiment was to measure the relative intensities of light at various horizontal distances from the lamp. The light detector (photocell) will enable us to make light intensity measurements that are more precise than those made with the human eye. The photocell converts light intensity to an electrical potential difference, which can… View Article

Light Affect on Plant Growth

For this Science assignment, I chose to find out if the color of light a plant receives, affects the plant growth. Light is electromagnetic radiation that comes in waves, the basic units of which are called photons. Plants use light to turn carbon dioxide into sugars necessary for growth, a process called photosynthesis. Sunlight is… View Article

Magnetic Materials

Paramagnetic materials have a small, positive susceptibility to magnetic fields. These materials are slightly attracted by a magnetic field and the material does not retain the magnetic properties when the external field is removed. Paramagnetic properties are due to the presence of some unpaired electrons, and from the realignment of the electron paths caused by… View Article

Significant Difference in Height of Bracken

Abstract: This investigation was designed to compare the height of Pteridium aquilinum in a light area and a dark area of Rushy Plains, Epping Forest and to establish if light intensity does have an effect on the growth of Pteridium aquilinum, commonly known as Bracken. From my research it was clear that the height of… View Article

Light Pen

A light pen, also called a selector pen, is a computer input device in the form of a light-sensitive wand used in conjunction with a computer’s CRT display.

The Success of Photosynthesis in Geranium Leaves

I. Abstract Photosynthesis is a process in which plants use light, water, and carbon dioxide to produce sugars, water and oxygen. Chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b, in the chloroplasts of a leaf, are responsible for absorbing wavelengths of light for use in photosynthesis with red and blue wavelengths being optimal. Testing for the most productive… View Article

The Optical Time Domain Reflectometer

In fiber optic networks, OTDR (Optical Time Domain Reflectometer) is an opto-electronic instrument used to characterize an optical fiber. Unlike power meters OTDR does not measure loss, but instead implies it by looking at the backscatter signature of the fiber. Generally, OTDR are used to determine the loss of any part of a system, the… View Article

Opinion Essay on Inventions

A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source. [6] LEDs are used as indicator lamps in many devices and are increasingly used for other lighting. Appearing as practical electronic components in 1962,[7] early LEDs emitted low-intensity red light, but modern versions are available across the visible, ultraviolet, and infrared wavelengths, with very high brightness….
