How will temperature affect the rate of photosynthesis?
The rate of photosynthesis in relation to temperature forms a bell curve. At low temperatures the enzymes responsible for photosynthesis have very little energy so the rate of photosynthesis is very slow. if it is cold enough for water to freeze it can be very harmful to a plant. as the temperature increases, the enzymes get more energy so the rate of photosynthesis increases. If it gets too hot the enzymes begin to lose their shape (denature). this means they are unable to function properly and the rate of photosynthesis decreases again. also at higher temperatures the stomata close to prevent water loss. this also stops gas exchange which slows photosynthesis even further. if it is hot enough for water to boil this can be very harmful.

Yes it can. The colder you are the slower your heart rate will get. Especially in situations like hypothermia.
The factors that effect the rate of photosynthesis are: the amount of sunlight, the amount of carbon dioxide, amount of water, intensity of sunlight, and the climate (temperature)
Increasing the temperature of a solvent speeds up the movement of its particles. This increase cause more solvent particles to bump into the solute. As a result, solute particles break loose and dissolve faster. Temperature often affects solubility rates. Endothermic stuff tendsto go faster in warm,… and exothermic stuff tends to go faster incool. (MORE)
It provides the enzymes responsible for photosyenthesis more energy, thus increasing the rate of photosynthesis.
If the pH is too acidic or too basic, the rate at which photosynthesis occurs will decrease. If the pH is just right for a specific plant (different plants work better at different pH levels), the rate will increase to an optimum point. This is because photosynthesis involves the operation of enzyme…s, which are affected by many factors, such as changes in pH. (MORE)
yes, pH could affect the rate of photosynthesis as most enzyme reactions are pH sensitive. However, it should be remembered that any drastic change in the pH levels of the plants leaf would most certainly kill the or damage the plant in any case - so the rate of photosynthesis then becomes really an… academic issue (MORE)
In heat gain , heart rate increases as the result of changes in the core body temperature. Dressing appropriately is the most important consideration to maintain the bodies core temperature. Dehydration causes heart rate to increase. In heat loss , heart rate decreases as adjustments result… in improved exercise capacity to heat exposure but minimally to cold stress. This generally takes about 10 days. Shivering can increase the heart rate significantly to increase core temperature. Considerable water can be lost from the respiratory tract during cold exposure when exercising which results in elevated heart rates (dehydration effect on heart rate). (MORE)
Generally speaking, rate of reaction increases with temperature, as more molecules have the necessary activation energy to react. It also increases the speed at which molecules move, increasing the frequency of collisions between reactant molecules, increasing the rate.
The main variables which affect photosynthesis are light, CO 2 concentration and temperature. You should be able to explain how each of these has their effect on the rate of photosynthesis.. Although water is needed as a raw material for photosynthesis, if water is short, it will cause the plant t…o wilt (and thereby lose its ability to capture sunlight) long before it limits photosynthesis at the biochemical level.. On a deeper level, other factors like amount of chlorophyll, availability of nutrients (eg Mg is needed for chlorophyll synthesis) will also affect the rate of photosynthesis, though these are rarely covered in discussion of this topic.. John Hewitson . water, temperature, and light intensity . (MORE)
Leaf thickness is largely due to the thickness of the palisade mesophyll layer. This is where the chloroplast is located and therefore the site area in light is absorbed for photosynthesis. Thicker leaves means more chloroplast, and thus a faster rate of photosynthesis.
It tells you that temperature affects the rate of photosynthesis. At low temperature, the rate is slow, while at higher temperatures it is faster. This is true up to a point, known as the optimum temperature, where rate is fastest. After this, the rate slows down and stops as it becomes too hot, the… enzymes become denatured and so can't carry out photosynthesis. (MORE)

Light intenstity is a factor which can limit the rate of photosynthesis. At low light intensities, if the light intensity is increased, the rate of photosynthesis increases. This is because light excites chlorophyll molecules, providing the energy for the production of carbohydrates. However, at hig…her light intensities, the rate of photosnthesis will level off. This is because another factor, which is now closer to its minimum level than light intensity, will be limitting the rate; for example carbon dioxide concentration or temperature. (MORE)
The higher temperature will cause the particles to move faster and to increase the number and strength of the collisions. So, a lower temperature will slow the speed at which the particles move and decrease the number and strength of the collisions. To add to the answer above, higher temperature g…ives off more energy (kinetic) to the particles. More energy allows the particle to collide with other particles with more energy. And they will collide much faster, which will eventually break the bond between them. (MORE)

Higher temperatures tend to affect metabolic rate by increasing therate of metabolism. Lower temperatures tend to slow the processenough to cause a lowering in the burn of oxygen and calories.
Yes it does as temperature increases so does the rate of osmosis for example as temperature increases the osmotic rate gets faster etc.
you can never really have too much carbon dioxide ln the atmosphere. but the light level needs to match the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in order for photosynthesis to take place effectively.
The factors are: light as photosynthesis needs light and temperature is also an element. :')

Two important ones. Sunlight. The amount of sunlight, photons striking the pigment chlorophyll, varies and affects the rate of photosynthesis for obvious reasons. Less obvious is the amount of water the plant gets. The plant splits water to garner electrons there to replace the electrons the p…igment chlorophyll puts into photosystem II. So, less water, less photosynthetic rates. (MORE)
if there is no CO2 the plant can not crate food and the process could not continue.....!
amount of sunlight amount of carbon dioxide amount of water intensity of sunlight temperature and how idk
Yes, evaporation occurs when some molecules in a solution have enough kinetic energy to escape from the surface of the bulk liquid. The kinetic energy is dependent on temperature, and thus temperature most certainly affects the rate of evaporation.
As the temperature increases, the amount of energy available for diffusion increases. This means that a given particle will move faster at a higher temperature. Thus the rate of diffusion will be faster as the temperature increases.
Too much water is bad for the plant because the roots of the plant will be drowned and too little water will make the roots of the plant dry. So watering the plants at a right time and at a right amount is great for keeping the plant healthy.
If the light is closer than it is quicker to create photosynthesis as if the plant or flower was further away from the light
Photosynthesis is directly proportional to the light intensity. Therate will increase until the light is the limiting factor thentemperature or carbon dioxide levels will have to be increased
A rise in temperature will increase the rate of photosynthesis, but over 40 degrees will rapidly decrease the rate of photosynthesis. I'm not entirely certain, but I would guess about 15-25 degrees is best.
All chemical processes have higher reaction rates with increased temperature. Temperature is the rate of movement of molecules in a system, and the more a molecule moves the more likely it is that it will react with another molecule. In general, every increase of 10 degrees Celsius doubles the rate …of reaction. (MORE)
This is the case because the photosynthetic processes require Light to 'Proceed". The more light energy that is input into the System, the quicker the rate of Photosynthesis.
availibility of water sunlight intensity temperature (there are only 3 that I know of and we just learned this lesson in biology)
Yes, it does. Other things that affect the rate of photosynthesis is light intensity and the availability of water.
Usually, the colder it is outside (like in the winter) the rate of photosynthesis slows down. In the spring when the temperature is warmer than the winter, that is when the rate of photosynthesis starts to speed up.
As light intensity increases, the rate of photosynthesis will increase as long as other factorsare in adequate supply. As the rate increases, eventually another factor will come into shortsupply. The graph below shows the effect of low carbon dioxide concentration.
Photosynthesis requires many enzymes to function. An example of one of these enzymes is rubisco, which is involved in carbon fixation to RuBP. All enzymes have a specific range of variables in which they perform optimally, like pH ranges or in this case temperature. At a boiling point temperature, i…t is likely photosynthesis will be nonexistent or at minimal levels. This is because at such a high temperature the enzymes can become denatured, and fail to perform. This of course is not true for all types of photosynthesis, as there are some bacteria that are able to perform photosynthesis at extreme temperatures. (MORE)
Generally, it comes down to the basic laws of chemistry. As the temperature increases, particles become more 'excited' and move quicker, therefore increasing the rate of photosynthesis. The opposite happens when temperature decreased, the particles move slower and therefore decreasing the rate of ph…otosynthesis. (MORE)
the rate of photosynthsis increases with increase in the amount of carbon dioxide. this however happens to to a certain maximum level of carbon dioxide beyond which the rate remains constant.
intensity of light It is affected by temperature, pH , intensity of light . Other physical factors do not affect much
Maybe a blockout of sunlight or not enough access to water and the temperature may be too low to slow photosynthesis down
Acid rain can affect the rate of photosynthesis by deceasing the pH of the soil. As acid rain contains weak sulfuric acid and many more different solvents therefore will decease the pH (8->6). Having the incorrect pH may kill some of the plants tissues therefore limits photosynthesis.
You need three things to have photosynthesis: water, carbon dioxide, and light. Take any one away, and you slow down the rate.
Increase temperature increases the rate of reaction. When the temperature increases the particles move around faster. this results in more collisions. it also means that more of the collisions will have enough energy to produce a reaction. Take a moment to look at collision theory, it's a good top…ic to have a handle on. (MORE)
a higher level of CO2 will increase the rate of photosynthesis to a certain speed, and then it will no longer have any effect on the process of photosynthesis.
The higher the temperature, the higher the rate of photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is affected by more than one factor. The other factors are light and carbon dioxide.
By using greenhouses and polytunnels ( large greenhouse made of plastic) to control the levels of the limiting factors. It is useful, as it allows you to grow fruit which normally doesn't grow in cold climates in the UK
The stomata are surrounded by guard cell which are tasked with the graduated opening and closing of the stomata. So, wide ope much carbon dioxide is diffusing into the cells and the rate of photosynthesis is high, but as the stomata work their way towards the closed position the rate of photosynthes…is slows down until it can stop completely with no diffusion of CO2 through the closed stomata. (MORE)
Photosynthesis happens rapidly when there is sunlight. Sunlight is a main factor necessary for Photosynthesis. So if the temperature is not hot enough, photosynthesis might not happen as rapidly as it happens when the sunlight is directly there.
Donuts. No, seriously, there are billions of things that don't affect the rate of photosynthesis. Give us some choices here.
The rate of photosynthesis depends on temperature the same wayenzymes depend on temperature. Photosynthesis involves enzyme assistance. Enzymes are biologicalcatalysts that speed up chemical reactions. Enzymes are affected by pH and temperature. If the pH is too acidicor basic, enzymes will be den…atured (which means they will changeshape and not be able to catalyze reactions as well or entirely). Same goes for temperature. If the temperature is too cold or toohot, the enzymes might deactivate, or their efficiency will beinhibited. So, if the temperature of the organism's environment is too high orlow, the rate of photosynthesis will decrease because the enzymesaren't working properly. On the other hand, if the temperature is optimal for enzymeactivity, the rate will increase, as production is at its high. (MORE)
