A simple simulator that allows users to change a range of variables such as the color of light, brightness of light, and carbon dioxide concentration, and then note their impact on the photosynthetic efficiency of a plant.
Use this tool to help students find answers to:
- What are the factors that influence photosynthesis?
- How does the increase in carbon dioxide levels affect the rate of photosynthesis?
