Abstract:In recent years carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere have increased. A possible solution to this growing problem is converting this gas though the process of photosynthesis, used by many plants. My experiment studies the rate of photosynthesis in plants by measuring the oxygen produced while in an enclosed space. Oxygen is measured by timing how long a candle stays alight.
