5 Multiple choice questions
- A photosynthetic pigment that participates directly in the light reactions, which convert solar energy to chemical energy.
- the synthesis of organic compounds from carbon dioxide, such as in photosynthesis
- 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.
- in chloroplasts, an acceptor of electrons lost from chlorophyll a; found in the thylakoid membrane

5 True/False questions
C3 Plant → type of plant that minimizes photorespiration by fixing carbon twice, using a C4 pathway in addition to the Calvin-Benson Cycle.
Mesophyll → The ground tissue of a leaf, sandwiched between the upper and lower epidermis and specialized for photosynthesis.
photosystem I → One of two light-harvesting units of a chloroplast's thylakoid membrane; it uses the P680 reaction-center chlorophyll.
spectrophotometer → An instrument that measures the proportions of light of different wavelengths absorbed and transmitted by a pigment solution.
photosynthesis → One of two light-harvesting units of a chloroplast's thylakoid membrane; it uses the P700 reaction-center chlorophyll.
