- C3 Plant
- a A flattened membrane sac inside the chloroplast, used to convert light energy into chemical energy.
- b enzyme that converts inorganic carbon dioxide molecules into organic molecules during the final step of the calvin cycle
- c The 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.
- d A plant that uses the Calvin cycle for the initial steps that incorporate CO2 into organic material, forming a three-carbon compound as the first stable intermediate.
- e process by which plants use the sun's energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into sugars
5 Multiple Choice Questions
- one of the carrier molecules that transfers high-energy electrons from chlorophyll to other molecules
- One of two light-harvesting units of a chloroplast's thylakoid membrane; it uses the P700 reaction-center chlorophyll.
- reactions of photosynthesis in which energy from ATP and NADPH is used to build high-energy compounds such as sugars
- that portion of the electromagnetic spectrum detected as various colors by the human eye, ranging in wavelength from about 380 nm to about 750 nm.
- organism that obtains energy from the foods it consumes; also called a consumer
5 True/False Questions
Light Reactions → reactions of photosynthesis that use energy from light to produce ATP and NADPH
Chlorophyll b → almost identical to chlorophyll a, but slightly different absorption spectra, yellow-green
CAM Plants → Store the organic acids made at night in vacuoles and use them for photosynthesis during the day when stomata are closed
Chlorophyll → green pigment in plants that absorbs light energy used to carry out photosynthesis
Mesophyll → The ground tissue of a leaf, sandwiched between the upper and lower epidermis and specialized for photosynthesis.
