Abstract

The purpose of this experiment was to determine whether changing the solution in which plants were grown would change the amount of oxygen that was emitted and the amount of carbon dioxide absorbed. The plant used was mizuna lettuce. The plants were grown in an ebb and flow hydroponic system and fertilized by two different solutions. Once the plants matured, they were put into a sealed chamber with both a oxygen and carbon dioxide sensor attached. These sensors were then attached to a computer showing the amounts oxygen and carbon dioxide inside the chamber. The change in carbon dioxide and oxygen was observed over a period of time. The results indicated that neither solution changed the amount of oxygen emitted or carbon dioxide absorbed. Thus it can be conclude that changing the two solutions in which plants are grown in this experiment does not affect the amount of oxygen emitted or carbon dioxide absorbed.
