From Figure 21.5, predict the spectral properties of accessory light-harvesting pigments found in plants.

Interpretation Introduction

To determine:

The spectral properties of accessory light-harvesting pigments in plants.

Introduction:

The radiant energy spectrum whose intensity at every wavelength is a measure of the energy passed via selectively absorbing substance at that wavelength is absorption spectrum.

Explanation of Solution

Light is absorbed in the range 620 nm to 680 nm, 400 nm to 470 nm. This is the range of the absorption spectrum of chlorophylls. The chlorophylls a and b therefore absorb not in the middle but on either ends of the visible spectrum. 400 nm to 700 nm is the light range that the plants are exposed to...
