The rate-limiting step of photosynthesis is the CO2 assimilating enzyme Rubisco (short for ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase) (Jensen, 2000). It uses ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate and CO2 as substrates to generate glucose. Given that Rubisco is the rate limiting step in photosynthesis, an increase in its substrate CO2 would expectedly lead to an ...

What I think would be a rough estimate (ignoring the physical/thermal requirements for diamond creation) TL;DR -- It's about 68W/m2 given the caveats below. Also: Disclaimer: This is the best way I could think of to figure it out. It is a rough estimate only, and your level of desired precision will introduce more complicated calculations than the ones ...

Just a speculation for whether diamond berries could exist or not. This is not an answer for "what is the energy uptake rate of plants" because the actual question tends to be "whether a plant can gather enough energy to form diamonds". For energy uptake rate of plants please see MCM's answer. Even though enthalpy of formation is same as heat required for ...
