why does adding of baking soda into a beaker with hydrilla covered with a test tube and kept underneath a light source increase the amount of oxygen coming out?Is it because baking soda has a lot of carbon dioxide?

Expert Answer:

Baking soda is the source of carbon dioxide. For photosynthesis to occur, carbon dioxide, water and light are needed. Only then will glucose be produced and oxygen gas released.
