ppm means parts per million, and is a way to express concentration. another way, more often used in chemistry is moles per liter, or molarity. a reactions speed depends in part, on its concentration. the higher the rate the faster the reaction occurs, photosynthesis included. so if you dont change the photoperiod, the higher the [CO2], the more photosynthesis occurs in a given day.
