Question

Explain the procedure you have adopted in your school to prove that heat is liberated during respiration. What result we will get, if you perform this experiment with dry seeds ?


Solution

The respiration experiment was performed using the moist germinating seeds. These seeds performed aerobic respiration and released energy in the form of heat. When the dry seeds are used, there is no moisture for the growth of the seeds. Water is required for the survival of the seeds thus, the dry seeds will not perform respiration, there is no release of CO$$_2$$ and heat. Hence, the rate of respiration cannot be measured using dry seeds.
