The majority of my data agrees with my hypothesis. I hypothesized that the color of light which would result in the highest photosynthetic rate for the spinach and red cabbage would be red (650-700 nm) and yellow (400-450 nm), respectively. To fully elaborate on such hypothesis, Table 1 below ranks my hypothesized photosynthetic rates for different colors on each plant.
[...] Here, an article divulges into the topic of photosynthesis. The author, David J. Des Marais explains how the new appearance of such photosynthetic organisms probably increase organic activity by two to three orders of magnitude, caused by the ability to capture hydrogen by cleaving water. This innovative way of converting energy changed our planet forever. Prior to the existence of such organisms, oxygen levels were low. This was because the main source of oxygen was from geothermal outflows and rock weathering, rather than from plants. [...]
[...] A plant's physical color is present because the plant does not absorb the wavelength of that certain color, causing it to bounce off of the plant. However, it will absorb the wavelength of the color on the opposite side of the color wheel as the color of the plant the most. Hence, a green plant will absorb the color red the most. Using the color wheel, those colors that are farther away from the color of the plant are the colors that get absorbed the most. [...]
