    These two are pigments present along with chlorophyl. Pigments are molecules that absorb specific wavelengths (energies) of light and reflect all others. In our case,
    Carotenoids - reflects yellow/orange/red;
    - absorbs blue and green;

    Phycocyanins - reflects blue and ...

    Solution Summary

    The expert determines what you expect the rate of photosynthesis curve to look like and why. A plant is lacking carotenoids and phycocyanins are analyzed.
