How Does Microwave Radiation Affect Seed Germination?
Transcript of How Does Microwave Radiation Affect Seed Germination?
If I were to heat an orange seed in a microwave for one minute, then it will sprout the quickest.
1. Three orange seeds.
2. One microwave
3. A planting pot
8. Measuring cup
To start this experiment get an orange that has seeds inside of it and also grab a plate. 2. Cut open the orange and remove three seeds from it. 3. Place one seed on the plate and put it on the microwave. 4. Heat the seed for one minute in the microwave. 5. Remove seed and plant it in the pot and mark its location (Caution plate will be hot!). 6. Place another seed on plate and place it in the microwave. 7. Heat the seed for 30 seconds in the microwave. 8. Repeat step 5. 9. Plant the unheated seed inside of the pot. 10. Water the seeds only once a week starting the day after the seeds are planted.
After the fourth week the plant started to sprout. My hypothesis was incorrect because the seed that was put in the microwave for one minute did not grow whatsoever. I learned from this experiment that microwaving a seed does not make its rate of germination increase at all. If I were to do this experiment again I would change the amount of water given to the seeds. If I were to continue this experiment I would just keep doing what I was doing previously. I would not change any other variables except the amount of water. I did not introduce any kind of error to my experiment.
