    • Abstract


      The rate of glucose equivalent production in C4 green plants is investigated as a function of the intercellular partial pressure of CO2, so as to find the precise physical chemistry of photosynthesis. Expressions are first formulated for the dependence of photochemical efficiency and of rubisco activation on pressure. Then a pressure-dependent rate law is derived. The latter is successfully tested for two specific C4 plants, namely, Panicum antidotale and Panicum coloratum.
