- b 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.
- c A route of electron flow during the light reactions of photosynthesis that involves only photosystem I and that produces ATP but not NADPH or oxygen

5 Multiple choice questions
- 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
- One of two light-harvesting units of a chloroplast's thylakoid membrane; it uses the P700 reaction-center chlorophyll.
- 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.
- Store the organic acids made at night in vacuoles and use them for photosynthesis during the day when stomata are closed
- almost identical to chlorophyll a, but slightly different absorption spectra, yellow-green
5 True/False questions
stroma → The fluid of the chloroplast surrounding the thylakoid membrane.
Carbon fixation → the synthesis of organic compounds from carbon dioxide, such as in photosynthesis
PEP Carboxylase → An enzyme that adds CO2 to phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to form oxaloacetate in C4 plants. It acts prior to photosynthesis.
photophosphorylation → 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.
Photon → plant capable of synthesizing its own food from simple organic substances
