5 Matching Questions
- photosystem I
- CAM Plants
- Chlorophyll b
- a Store the organic acids made at night in vacuoles and use them for photosynthesis during the day when stomata are closed
- b a tiny particle or packet of light energy
- c One of two light-harvesting units of a chloroplast's thylakoid membrane; it uses the P700 reaction-center chlorophyll.
- d almost identical to chlorophyll a, but slightly different absorption spectra, yellow-green
- e The distance between crests of electromagnetic waves.
5 Multiple Choice Questions
- reactions of photosynthesis in which energy from ATP and NADPH is used to build high-energy compounds such as sugars
- type of plant that minimizes photorespiration by fixing carbon twice, using a C4 pathway in addition to the Calvin-Benson Cycle.
- An enzyme that adds CO2 to phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to form oxaloacetate in C4 plants. It acts prior to photosynthesis.
- A flattened membrane sac inside the chloroplast, used to convert light energy into chemical energy.
- reactions of photosynthesis that use energy from light to produce ATP and NADPH
5 True/False Questions
spectrophotometer → a tiny particle or packet of light energy
Chlorophyll → almost identical to chlorophyll a, but slightly different absorption spectra, yellow-green
heterotroph → plant capable of synthesizing its own food from simple organic substances
Mesophyll → The ground tissue of a leaf, sandwiched between the upper and lower epidermis and specialized for photosynthesis.
photosystem II → One of two light-harvesting units of a chloroplast's thylakoid membrane; it uses the P680 reaction-center chlorophyll.
