...Plant Pigments & Absorption Lab SBI4U Metabolic Processes Lab 1 Kevin Salwach P.1 Rm. 208 De Cat November 5 2013 Lab 1 Pigments & Absorption Introduction Autotrophs, a group of organisms to which plants belong, obtain their own food and energy through ways other than hunting and ingestion. Almost all plants use photosynthesis to obtain their energy. Using the CO2 in the air that surrounds them, plants can create the energy needed to survive. The process is split into two parts; the “light” reactions occur by using light from the sun to activate electrons in the photosystem to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP) the main requirement for metabolism. After this has occurred, the “dark” reactions occur where ATP is reduced to coenzymes in several complex cycles, and with the help of CO2, glucose is produced. This is a simplified explanation of course, as the entire photosynthetic process contains many different reactions and cycles. Overall, this is a very effective way of obtaining energy, and allows a whole manner of organisms to thrive almost anywhere on Earth. Purpose The purpose of this lab is conduct three experiments that answer the questions: - Where to plants conduct photosynthesis? - What photosynthetic pigments do they use? - What wavelength of light works best for photosynthesis? Materials -Microscope -Elodea -Microscope slide / cover slip -Spinach leaves -Mortar / pestle -Distilled water -80% acetone -Sand -Filter paper...

From all the information that I have learned about diversity in the United States I believe it has helped me better to understand and to relate to other people better then I have in past. The information has also cause me to be more open minded. I know that diversity is all around us and will always be, but if it wasn't for diversity we would all be the same. When we deal with diversity we can learn new ways to better ourselves. When I was younger I wanted everything to be easy. As I have aged I have started to look for ways to challenge myself to try and think better, and that is when I was able to recognize diversity and how it plays a large part in our lives. Yes, I have learned that over the centuries my cultural has been involved in some really terrible things. Have you learned something new about your own racial, ethnic, or cultural history? During one of the assignment I had the opportunity to not only research and find out about my own heritage, but I learned about some of the history of my ancestors.
