Chemosynthesis Vs. Photosynthesis

Postby Schröder » Mon Dec 25, 2006 5:24 pm

One occurs deep beneath the ocean and the other occurs where light is available. Since both processes result in energy, is anyone better than the other? :?
In other words, is there anyway to know if let's say Photosynthesis results in more joules of enery produced than chemosynthesis?
There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one from so simple a beginning.....The Origin of Species

How about doing some experiments that include photosynthesis and chemosynthesis as the main factor in the experiment. Use an equipment which helps measure the amount of energy produces in both photosynthesis and chemosynthesis. Then maybe you will know which one produces more joules of energy. If not, can try searching for info.
