Study of the renewal of oxygen by photosynthesis
The objective of this experiment is to study the production and consumption of oxygen in a closed loop. Two sealed chambers, interconnected by a conduit, will house respectively a plant and a rabbit. The plant will produce oxygen through photosynthesis and it will be consumed by the respiration of both organismes. Both rooms are connected by two selective conduits with respect to a given gas (CO2 and O2, respectively) with a flow meter for measuring the exchange of gases between the two chambers. A sensor in each chamber will give the air composition thereof.
