AP Biology/LABORATORY 4. Plant Pigments and Photosynthesis
In photosynthesis, plant cells convert light energy into chemical energy that is stored in sugars and other organic compounds. Critical to the process is chlorophyll, the primary photosynthetic pigment in chloroplasts.
This laboratory has two separate activities: I. Plant Pigment Chromatography, and II. Measuring the Rate of Photosynthesis. Select the one you want to study, beginning with Key Concepts for that section.
