Experiment: Aging Tomatoes in Dark vs Light
We conducted an experiment on tomatoes to find out about their aging process in the presence of light and absence of light. The independent variable is light. The dependent variable is the aging process of the Roma tomatoes. We manipulated the independent variable (light), to see if the aging process (dependent variable) is affected by it. We used 8 Roma tomatoes for conducting the experiment on the aging of tomatoes. We were a group of four students. The Roma tomatoes variety was used for the experiment. All four students used two Roma tomatoes each. In total, we had 8 Roma tomatoes. We put each Roma tomato in a separate zip lock bag so that no air could pass through it. We placed 1 Roma tomato (sealed in a zip lock bag) on the counter outside. This Roma tomato is placed on the counter with the presence of light. We put the other Roma tomato (sealed in the zip lock bag) in a dark cupboard. The other Roma tomato is not provided with light. These 8 Roma tomatoes were given four days. After the completion of four days, we found out that only 1 Roma tomato was changed. This Roma tomato was placed in the cupboard without any light or air. This Roma tomato had slight wrinkles on it. The other 7 Roma tomatoes did not change at all (no aging sign).
