Say I was conducting an experiment for photosynthesis. If I moved light closer to the plant, what effect would this have on the process of photosynthesis?
The rate of photosynthesis varies from plant to plant. Some plants require more light and some require less. If you move light closer to the plant, in most scenarios the rate of photosynthesis is likely to be increased. For some plants a minimal light is enough for their photosynthesis, so for those plants, moving light source closer or further will have less effect.
