Atmospheric Density Influence On Plant Growth

This scientific experiment is about determining what significant effects atmospheric density has on plant growth. If it is true that atmospheric density minimizes sunlight reaching the plants due to the concentration of air particles, thus creating smaller spaces for light to pass through, then the denser the covering, the less the plants will grow healthily due to the opacity of the atmosphere. In 2 trials, the thickness of translucent covers on five groups of pre-sprouted bean plants was incrementally increased to simulate variable atmospheric density. Observations were made for comparisons between the health conditions of the five plant groups.
