does increased light intesnity also increase chlorophyll concentration, thus increasing absorption levles?
I am doing an experiment on this. Whereby I grow mung beans in different luxes (20, 40, 60, 80, 100) and then grind the leaves down from each light inesnity and place it in a spectrophotometer. I'm assuming that increasing light intensity causes chlorophyll concentration to increase to a certain point as photosynthesis rates will reach an optimum and no more chlorophyll is necessary (or plant is unable to create more). I hope that makes sense!
