Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    could anyone please describe and analyse this graph. I mainly just need to know what's going on in the graph and describe the pattern. the graph is at http://webprojects.oit.ncsu.edu/proj...n_spectrum.jpg
    any help would be much appreciated.

    It shows that a plant photosynthesises best with a very short wavelength of visible light or a very long wavelength (blue and red) but it doesn't photosynthesis that well with mid range wavelengths (green).

    You should the quote some figures from the graph and if you need to, give reasons for why this is: chloroplasts absorb blue and red wavelengths the best and reflect green wavelengths (that's why a leaf looks green).

    Hope this helped
