Abstract:

An algal culture apparatus was designed to fit inside the 2-12-in. bore of a large electromagnet capable of providing fields exceeding 100,000 gauss. Photosynthesis and respiration rates of Chlorella pyrenoidosa 7-11-05 were determined by analyzing the input and effluent gases for oxygen. Two experiments were conducted a the effect of 10,000 gauss on photosynthesis, and b the effect of 100,000 gauss on respiration. In neither case did the magnetic field have any effect. Author
