The formation of starch in the plant, the assimilation of carbon dioxide, can only take place when the plant is exposed to light. This process is therefore also called photosynthesis (Grek: phos "light", synthesis "composition"). In this experiment the students are supposed to realize that photosynthesis can only occur with the help of the green leaf pigment, which converts the light of the sun into energy.
