A structure in the cells of plants and some other organisms that captures energy from sunlight and uses it to produce food.
Process by which plants and some other organisms use light energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and high-energy carbohydrates such as sugars and starches.
phase of photosynthesis where light energy is converted to chemical energy in the form of ATP; results in the splitting of water and release of oxygen
photophosphorylation in terms of chemiosmosis
photophosphorylation is the production of ATP from chemiosmosis which is the movement of ions across a membrane
occurs in the stoma of chloroplast. the "calvin cycle". CO2 ( from Environment) us reduced by NADPH (which is from the light dependant phase). Carbohydrate and water produced. keeps one molecule of glyceraldehyde phostphate.
Contains many enzymes, including rubisco, which are important for the reactions of the Calvin cycle.
Have a large surface area for light absorption and the space within them allows rapid accumulation of protons.
