Students use the Pearson AP Biology website: http://www.phschool.com/science/biology_place/labbench/lab5/intro.html (open in internet explorer for best results)
to explore how a respirometer works to measure the rate of cellular respiration in pea plants. Students answer questions while completing the online simulation. Students graph actual respirometer data and determine which temperature resulted in the highest rate of pea respiration.
