Because chlorophyll a is the chief pigment associated with photosynthesis as it traps light, a plant that lacks this pigment would not be able to carry out photosynthetic activity. The other accessory pigments, such as chlorophyll b, xanthophylls, and carotenoids, are equally crucial to the process of absorption of light and energy transfer to chlorophyll a. Moreover, they reduce photooxidation of chlorophyll a while enabling a wider wavelength range to be utilized for photosynthesis.Answered by Abhisek | 11 months ago
Figure shows the effect of light on the rate of photosynthesis. Based on the graph, answer the following questions:
(a) At which point/s (A, B or C) in the curve is light a limiting factor?
(b) What could be the limiting factor/s in region A?
(c) What do C and D represent on the curve?
