  1. a The fluid of the chloroplast surrounding the thylakoid membrane.
  2. b a tiny particle or packet of light energy
  3. c the synthesis of organic compounds from carbon dioxide, such as in photosynthesis
  4. d A photosynthetic pigment that participates directly in the light reactions, which convert solar energy to chemical energy.
  5. e process by which plants use the sun's energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into sugars

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. An enzyme that adds CO2 to phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to form oxaloacetate in C4 plants. It acts prior to photosynthesis.
  2. a 3 carbon sugar; for each CO2 are formed in the Calvin cycle; 1 leaves to be used in the cell, 5 are use for regeneration of RuBP
  3. An instrument that measures the proportions of light of different wavelengths absorbed and transmitted by a pigment solution.
  4. plant capable of synthesizing its own food from simple organic substances
  5. yellow or orange pigment that serves as an accessory to chlorophyll in photosynthesis

5 True/False questions

  1. photorespirationThe process of generating ATP from ADP and phosphate by means of a proton-motive force generated by the thylakoid membrane of the chloroplast during the light reactions of photosynthesis.


  2. primary electron acceptorin chloroplasts, an acceptor of electrons lost from chlorophyll a; found in the thylakoid membrane


  3. visible lightthat portion of the electromagnetic spectrum detected as various colors by the human eye, ranging in wavelength from about 380 nm to about 750 nm.


  4. MesophyllThe ground tissue of a leaf, sandwiched between the upper and lower epidermis and specialized for photosynthesis.


  5. photophosphorylationA metabolic pathway that consumes oxygen, releases carbon dioxide, generates no ATP, and decreases photosynthetic output.
