Walkthrough of the New AP Photosynthesis Lab



DPIP Reduction Lab

This is the older AP lab for Photosynthesis using DPIP reduction. A small group of Hinton Scholars students will be doing this lab during our Big Idea Photosynthesis Lab with our new Vernier probe lab-ware. We will substitute the Vernier colorimeters for the photo spectrometers shown in the video. The Vernier equipment will allow us to accurately graph the results of our experiments automatically.
