- b a tiny particle or packet of light energy
- c the synthesis of organic compounds from carbon dioxide, such as in photosynthesis
- d A photosynthetic pigment that participates directly in the light reactions, which convert solar energy to chemical energy.
- e process by which plants use the sun's energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into sugars
5 Multiple choice questions
- An enzyme that adds CO2 to phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to form oxaloacetate in C4 plants. It acts prior to photosynthesis.
- 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
- An instrument that measures the proportions of light of different wavelengths absorbed and transmitted by a pigment solution.
- plant capable of synthesizing its own food from simple organic substances
- yellow or orange pigment that serves as an accessory to chlorophyll in photosynthesis
5 True/False questions
photorespiration → 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.
primary electron acceptor → in chloroplasts, an acceptor of electrons lost from chlorophyll a; found in the thylakoid membrane
visible light → 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.
Mesophyll → The ground tissue of a leaf, sandwiched between the upper and lower epidermis and specialized for photosynthesis.
photophosphorylation → A metabolic pathway that consumes oxygen, releases carbon dioxide, generates no ATP, and decreases photosynthetic output.
