What are the effects of chlorine dioxide on a Vicia Faba plant and how does it inhibit or stimulate the plant’s functions in comparison to a Vicia Faba plant grown without chlorine dioxide?

that is my problem.
i need to be able to test for any kind of effect within the plant as well as the outer appearance. i just don't know how.

That's kinda complex for IB, it's not for the extended essay is it?

OH man, the group 4 we did was so much BS lol...umm my suggestion would be to pick something a lot simpler. Otherwise really the only way to look at contents of a plant stem involve expensive tests and stuff like that. You might want to focus on testing stuff that you can measure easier.

Arizona. Our project ended up being effects of aerobic vs anaerobic exercise and it's effect on reaction time. At the end the only thing that really mattered was how our teacher graded it...the diploma, well as long as you do a project and your exam grades are good enough you shouldn't worry. Same with the TOK and extended essay grades, don't worry about it. Looking back IB was just another bonding experience.
