Light can affect the rate of a reaction by altering the speed ofthe reaction. The more light there is, the faster the reactiontakes place.
Answer . Light is a form of energy that can easily convert into heat energy. Heat energy can change ice from its solid phase into its liquid form--- pure water.
Actually, crystals are supposed to grow better in the dark. If you needed scientific facts and stuff, you can always look it up on the Internet. Hope this helps!
The sun's energy comes to earth in the form of heat and light. So yes, it does affect Global Warming.
A peach is a fruit with a soft, slightly fuzzy skin, a fleshy texture, and a sweet taste.
Environmental conditions affect decomposition. A body that is exposed to air will decompose more quickly and exhibit more insect activity. A buried body will decompose eight times slower than a body exposed to air. This is due in part to limited insect activity and possibly lower temperatures. L…ikewise a body submerged in water decomposes at half the rate of an exposed body. The rate of decomposition depends on the temperature of the water. Cold water slows decomposition and warm water causes faster decomposition. The body is also shielded from insect activity as long as it is submerged. (MORE)
The peach ( Prunus persica ) is a species of Prunus native to China that bears an edible juicy fruit also called a peach. It is a deciduous tree growing to 5-10 m tall, belonging to the subfamily Prunoideae of the family Rosaceae . It is classified with the almond in the subgenus A…mygdalus within the genus Prunus , distinguished from the other subgenera by the corrugated seed shell.. The leaves are lanceolate , 7-15 cm long and 2-3 cm broad. The flowers are produced in early spring before the leaves; they are solitary or paired, 2.5-3 cm diameter, pink, with five petals. The fruit is a drupe , with a single large seed encased in what appears to be wood, but isn't (called the "stone" or "pit"), yellow or whitish flesh, a delicate aroma, and a skin that is either velvety ( peaches ) or smooth ( nectarines ) in different cultivars . The flesh is very delicate and easily bruised in some cultivars, but is fairly firm in some commercial cultivars, especially when green. The seed is red-brown, oval shaped and 1.5-2 cm long. Peaches, along with cherries , plums and apricots , are stone fruits ( drupes ).. The scientific name persica , along with the word "peach" itself and its cognates in many European languages, derives from an early European belief that peaches were native to Persia (now Iran ). The modern botanical consensus is that they originate in China, and were introduced to Persia and the Mediterranean region along the Silk Road before Christian times. Cultivated peaches are divided into clingstones and freestones , depending on whether the flesh sticks to the stone or not; both can have either white or yellow flesh. Peaches with white flesh typically are very sweet with little acidity , while yellow-fleshed peaches typically have an acidic tang coupled with sweetness, though this also varies greatly. Both colours often have some red on their skin. Low-acid white-fleshed peaches are the most popular kinds in China , Japan , and neighbouring Asian countries, while Europeans and North Americans have historically favoured the acidic, yellow-fleshed kinds, though some prefer the other. History of peaches. Although its botanical name Prunus persica suggests the peach is native to Persia, it actually originated in China where it has been cultivated since the early days of Chinese culture. Peaches were mentioned in Chinese writings as far back as the tenth century B.C and were a favored fruit of emperors.. Its English name derives from the Latin plural of persicum malum , meaning Persian apple. In Middle English, it melded into peche , much closer to what we call it today.. The Persians brought the peach from China and passed it on to the Romans. The peach was brought to America by Spanish explorers in the sixteenth century and eventually made it to England and France in the seventeenth century, where it was a prized albeit rare treat.. A Horticultist by the name of George Minifie supposedly brought the first peaches from England to the USA in the early seventeenth century, planting them at his Estate of Buckland in Virginia.. Various American Indian tribes are credited with migrating the peach tree across the United States, taking seeds along with them and planting as they roved the country.. Although Thomas Jefferson had peach trees at Monticello, United States farmers did not begin commercial production until the nineteenth century in Maryland, Delaware, Georgia and finally Virginia. California grows 65% of peaches grown for commercial production in the United States, but the Southern states, Colorado, Michigan, and Washington also grow a significant amount.. Today, peaches are the second largest commercial fruit crop in the States, second only to apples. Italy, China and Greece are major producers of peaches outside of the United States.. Cultivation. Peach trees grow very well in a fairly limited range, since they have a chilling requirement that subtropical areas cannot satisfy, and they are not very cold-hardy. The trees themselves can usually tolerate temperatures to around â26 Â°C to â30 Â°C, although the following season's flower buds are usually killed at these temperatures, leading to no crop that summer. Flower bud kill begins to occur at temperatures between â15 Â°C and â25 Â°C depending on the cultivar (some are more cold-tolerant than others) and the timing of the cold, with the buds becoming less cold tolerant in late winter. Certain cultivars are more tender and others can tolerate a few degrees more cold. In addition, a lot of summer heat is required to mature the crop, with mean temperatures of the hottest month between 20 Â°C and 30 Â°C. Another problematic issue in many peach-growing areas is spring frost. The trees tend to flower fairly early in spring. The flowers can often be damaged or killed by freezes; typically, if temperatures drop below about â4 Â°C, most flowers will be killed. However, if the flowers are not fully open, they can tolerate a couple of degrees colder. Important historical peach-producing areas are China , Iran , France , and the Mediterranean countries like Italy , Spain and Greece . More recently, the United States (where the three largest producing states are California , South Carolina , and Georgia ), Canada British Columbia ), and Australia (the Riverland region) have also become important; peach growing in the Niagara Peninsula of Ontario, Canada, was formerly intensive but ended in 2008 when the last fruit cannery in Canada was closed by the proprietors. Oceanic climate areas like the Pacific Northwest and coastline of North Western Europe are generally not satisfactory for peach growing due to inadequate summer heat, though they are sometimes grown trained against south-facing walls to catch extra heat from the sun. Trees grown in a sheltered and south-facing position in the southeast of England are capable of producing both flowers and a large crop of fruit. Peach trees are the second most commonly cultivated fruit trees in the world after apple trees . Nectarines The nectarine is a cultivar group of peach that has a smooth, fuzzless skin. Though fuzzy peaches and nectarines are commercially regarded as different fruits, with nectarines often erroneously believed to be a crossbreed between peaches and plums , or a "peach with a plum skin", they belong to the same species as peaches. Several genetic studies have concluded in fact that nectarines are created due to a recessive gene , whereas a fuzzy peach skin is dominant . Nectarines have arisen many times from peach trees, often as bud sports .. As with peaches, nectarines can be white or yellow, and clingstone or freestone. On average, nectarines are slightly smaller and sweeter than peaches, but with much overlap. The lack of skin fuzz can make nectarine skins appear more reddish than those of peaches, contributing to the fruit's plum-like appearance. The lack of down on the skin also means their skin is more easily bruised than peaches.. The history of the nectarine is unclear; the first recorded mention in English is from 1616 , but they had probably been grown much earlier within the native range of the Peach in central and eastern Asia.. Diseases. The trees are prone to a disease called leaf curl , which usually does not directly affect the fruit but does reduce the crop yield by partially defoliating the tree. The fruit is very susceptible to brown rot .. Planting. Most peach trees sold by nurseries are named cultivars grafted onto a suitable rootstock. It is also possible to grow a tree from either a peach or nectarine seed, but the fruit quality of the resulting tree will be very unpredictable.. Peaches should be located in full sun, and with good air flow. This allows cold air to flow away on frosty nights and keeps the area cool in summer. Peaches are best planted in early winter, as this allows time for the roots to establish and be able to sustain the new spring growth. When planting in rows, plant north-south.. For optimum growth, peach trees require a constant supply of water. This should be increased shortly before the harvest. The best tasting fruit is produced when the peach is watered throughout the season. Drip irrigation is ideal, at least one dripper per tree. Although it is better to use multiple drippers around the tree, this is not necessary. A quarter of the root being watered is sufficient.. Peaches have a high nutrient requirement, needing more nitrogen than most other fruit trees. An NPK fertiliser can be applied regularly, and an additional mulch of poultry manure in autumn soon after the harvest will benefit the tree. If the leaves of the peach are yellow or small, the tree needs more nitrogen. Blood meal and bone meal , 3-5 kg per mature tree, or calcium ammonium nitrate, 0.5-1 kg, are suitable fertilisers. This also applies if the tree is putting forth little growth.. If the full amount of peaches is left, they will be under-sized and lacking in sugar and flavour. In dry conditions, extra watering is important. The fruit should be thinned when they have reached 2 cm in diameter, usually about 2 months after flowering. Fresh fruit are best consumed on the day of picking, and do not keep well. They are best eaten when the fruit is slightly soft, having aroma, and heated by the sun.. Storage. Hard fruit can be softened at home at room temperature, though it may not get any sweeter. The process is facilitated by ethylene , similar to the ripening of bananas. Storage in a paper bag concentrates this gas and hastens the process. When the fruit is soft, it can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days, to slow further changes.. In the August 13, 2004 edition of the Journal of Experimental Botany , researchers found that peaches stored around 40 Â°F (4 Â°C) became mealy and discolored.. Peaches in Asian tradition. Peaches are known in China, Japan, Korea, Laos, and Vietnam not only as a popular fruit but for the many folktales and traditions associated with it. Momotaro , one of Japan's most noble and semi-historical heroes, was born from within an enormous peach floating down a stream. Momotaro or "Peach Boy" went on to fight evil oni and face many adventures. Peach flowers are admired by the Japanese but not as much as the sakura (cherry).. In China, the peach was said to be consumed by the immortals due to its mystic virtue of conferring longevity on all who ate them. The divinity Yu Huang, also called the Jade Emperor , and his mother called Xi Wangmu also known as Queen Mother of the West, ensured the gods' everlasting existence by feeding them the peaches of immortality. The immortals residing in the palace of Xi Wangmu were said to celebrate an extravagant banquet called the Pantao Hui or "The Feast of Peaches". The immortals waited six thousand years before gathering for this magnificent feast; the peach tree put forth leaves once every thousand years and it required another three thousand years for the fruit to ripen. Ivory statues depicting Xi Wangmu's attendants often held three peaches.. The peach often plays an important part in Chinese tradition and is symbolic of long life. One example is in the peach-gathering story of Zhang Daoling , who many say is the true founder of Taoism . Elder Zhang Guo , one of the Chinese Eight Immortals , is often depicted carrying a Peach of Immortality. The peach blossoms are also highly prized in Chinese culture, ranked slightly lower than mei blossom.. It was in an orchard of flowering peach trees that Liu Bei , Guan Yu , and Zhang Fei took an oath of brotherhood in the opening chapter of the classic Chinese novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms .. Due to its delicious taste and soft texture, in ancient China "peach" was also a slang word for "young bride", and it has remained in many cultures as a way to define young women or a general state of goodness(as in English, with peach or peachy keen ).

Sunlight itself does not affect bananas after it has been harvested. Direct sunlight will heat a banana, and that is what will accelerate the ripening process of bananas or any fruit for that matter. Heat will accelerate the transformation of starch into sugar.
I'm not sure about all the scientific facts and things like that, but I do know from a recent science project that they grow a lot better in the dark. See ya! :)
A short exposure to light is not going to affect the taste of milk in a glass or jug. This is highly unlikely. The milk in a large container is mostly opaque and even if light affected the molecules, it would only be a few millimeters deep. This is especially unlikely for weak sources of light like …fluorescent bulbs or incandescent bulbs that will impart negligible energy. However, light from the sun does have a strong UV component that will certainly damage molecules such as proteins over time. Still, I think the chances that a protein crosslinked or broken by UV tastes noticeably different is unlikely. It is more likely that the milk would heat up under sunlight and incubate bad tasting bacteria before you notice chemical damage caused by UV damage. Heat from sunlight will dramatically accelerate bacteria incubation. The milk could spoil in only a few hours. Sources: I am a practicing biochemist and solar panel materials engineer. (MORE)

Green light does affect plants, but it doesn't really provide much help in the plants' growth. Plants that are green absorb all the colors of light except the color green, which is reflected off the plant. This is why we see the plant as green.

Peach - a mixture of red , & yellow lightened with white, mixed with a light blue will most often result in a pale mixture of brown, (the standard result of mixing all three of the prmary colours) in this case most likely a tan colour.
UV light affects the environment in a bad way. UV can cause skincancer, cataract, suppress the immune system etc.
Plants need sunlight for photosynthesis.. Water + carbon dioxide --> (with light) --> oxygen + glucose. The more light there is the more it will grow. Plants grow towards the light source this is phototropism.
They have the pulp, called the flesh of the fruit, and the pit, a hard, seed-like brown object.
Light is, sound is not. Light is an actual, physical thing - a photon, or 'packet of light' - which, although is massless, has energy and momentum. These are the true factors which influence gravitational fields - energy and momentum - not mass. Mass can be equated into its energy form by using E=m…c 2 , thus proving it has the requirements for a gravitational pull. Sound is a wave of pressure which travels through a medium. It is not a physical thing, it simply propagates through something as a vibration. Sound - the vibration itself - is not affected by gravity, but whatever it is travelling through will be, which can in turn pull the propagating sound waves towards the centre of gravity, and thus giving the illusion that the sound itself is affected by the gravitational pull.

Put some peaches in a can and put the lid on, surprisingly. . I put mason jars in the dishwasher (no soap), once they are good and hot, put your recipe in the jar (it must be hot), put on the seal and lid and listen for the popping to begin - once they make a pop noise, they have sealed.
Since producers (such as plants) live in specific places for specific reasons, they are completely dependent upon sunlight to produce the foods they need to survive.

The speed of light in a vacuum is constant. Otherwise, the speed of light will depend on what materials it travels through. For example, the speed of light in air is similar to the speed of light in a vacuum; in water, it is quite a bit slower.
The presence of ambient light often makes it possible to see things, where otherwise ... in darkness ... they would be invisible.
Light pollution doesn't affect the stars, it affects how well we can observe them from Earth.
as the distance from the plant increases, the rate of photosynthesis decreases - as less light energy is reaching the plant. Energy cannot be created or destroyed, therefore, if more light energy is put into the equation, more glucose and oxygen will be produced and glucose can be used for processes… in the plant such as growth and respiration.

The angle of refraction, the angle at which the light strikes the surface, and material that the light is hitting.
Because the area that the light illuminate gets wider the further it is from the source, the wider that area the dimmer the light will seem because it is still the same amount of light but in a bigger area
Water is affected by light by a small temperature rise (depending on the intensity of the the light) and the light will make the water become illuminated.
Light intensity affects voltage because the higher the intensity of light, the more volts are produced. It works exactly the same way in the case of: the lower the light intensity the less volts that are produced.
Light intensity has an important role on rate of transpiration . Transpiration is greater in day light as it enlarges the size of stomata and more water is lost to atmosphere.

That depends on the depth. plankton or phytoplankton need sunlight for the process of photosynthesis in order to create their food. The deeper into the ocean the less light is available. The area where there is the most production of food is the uppermost layer since more photosynthesis can occur. T…his area is called the euphotic zone and extends to about 230 feet of 70 meters below the surface. Very little photosynthesis occurs below 330ft Remember that just beneath the surface the level of sunlight is actually too intense for some plankton and for some the conditions at this level are not optimal. The best area is about 62-90 feet below the surface. (MORE)
We would all die as there would be no food. I think we need a little more clarification here. The first answer was totally correct in that we NEED light to produce the food we eat BUT more than that humans NEED light to survive. Sure we can survive in the dark but mentally we need light for o…ur emotional and psychological balance. Think of how much better we feel when the sun is shining. The light affects the pineal gland which affects a lot of hormones in the body - too little light (winter northern climes like Canada and Alaska and Russia etc) causes an illness called SAD Seasonal Affective Disorder. When this happens a person becomes depressed and sometimes totally unproductive We NEED LIGHT to survive beyond our food (MORE)
The speed of light depends on the electrical properties of the medium (stuff) it's traveling through. Its speed is maximum in vacuum ... 299,792,458 meters per second ... and it has different speeds in any material ... e.g., air, water, glass, jello, etc. As long as the light stays in the same mat…erial, its speed doesn't change. In water, the speed of light depends slightly on the wavelength of the light. For the wavelength of 400 nm (reddish light), the refractive index of water is about 1.34 , so the speed of that light is about 223,700,000 meters per second ... 25.4% less than it is in vacuum.

Yes, it does. "Grow lights" are designed to emit certain wavelenghts of light to enhance certain growth cycles (e.g; the reds and blues for growth and flowering). Length of light exposure per day also has a definite effect as well. Successful indoor growers keep the light source within six inches of… the tops of the indoor plants, which makes them easier to visually enjoy. .

An excess amount of light pollution can obscure or 'wash out' very distant stars and nebulae, this includes all sixth-magnitude stars and the Milky Way.
The way any color of anything, including leaves, shows up, has todo with its physical makeup on how it reflects light. For example,a green leaf is unable to absorb green light, so it bounces thatlight off, and therefor it appears green.
With high intensity light your pupil constricts. This happens to protect your retina from damage by light of high intensity.
