co2 fixation rate under high light condition in c3 plants is.. ?

Dear student,
CO2 fixation rate under high light condition in C3 plant is low because under high light condition chlorophyll is destroyed in presence of oxygen. This phenomenon is called photoxidation. Due to destruction of chlorophyll, fixation of CO2  is impaired.

Regards
