Work on Photosynthesis and Respiration Lab Reports Photosynthesis Report: No analysis questions. Write in each of the sections except analysis questions and error, calculate a rate of photosynthesis in your experiments. Make sure to have a a detailed conclusion that describes your results. Have a data table and an appropriate graph for your data.
Respiration Report: Take pictures of the lab questions on the lab sheets. I will also post it here. All lab questions should be answered in the Lab Question section, also include AT LEAST two 5 sentence paragraphs below the lab questions. The first paragraph is on how photosynthesis and cellular respiration connect to each other, the second paragraph is on the differences between the two processes. Write in all sections except the error section. Calculate the rate of cellular respiration in your experiment. Make sure to have a a detailed conclusion that describes your results. Have a data table and an appropriate graph for your data.
