Germination of the Beans! Abstract: When a question is asked, surely, an answer is followed. This lab asks the questions, based on the observance of the different pH amounts on beans which pH is optimal for bean growth? And what is the worst? Most importantly, why does it matter? In this experiment pH 6 was optimal for growth, and pH 2 was the least. with pH 6, the beans grew an average of 49.1 millimeters, where pH 2 beans, grew and average of 16.4 millimeters. Introduction: Enzymes are biological catalysts that speed up chemical reactions. Each enzyme has a unique shape that determines its function. They do this by breaking down bonds and reforming new ones. This is important because,Although pH is in actuality a measure of the degree of Hydrogen (H) ions in a substance or solution, it is best recognized as a measure of the acid/alkaline balance of anything. The pH scale measures how acidic or basic a substance is and ranges from 0 to 14. This is very important because by measuring the amount of acid in things on the earth, being able to distinguish pH levels harm the earth or help the earth is easier than just taking a wild guess. For instance, acid rain. Acid rain is very harmful to the environment. Acid rain damages everything over a period of time because it makes the living things in the environment die. Acid rain affects the life in the water as well as the life on land. By figuring out how the amount of pH can affect the growth of beans, we can briefly observe what helps the environment and what hurts it, by the level of pH. In this experiment the beans are the independent variable, and the pH the constant. If the pH is lower, then the beans will grow more slowly than the beans being tested in a high pH. This also means, If the pH being tested is 6, then the beans will grow more quickly then if you placed them
