Which set of reactions uses H2O and produces O2? Light-independent reactions or light dependent reactionslight dependent reactionsWhat is the importance of the light-independent reactions in terms of carbon flow in the biosphere?The light-independent reactions turn CO2, a gas, into usable carbon in the form of sugars. **CO2 is unusable until plants have "fixed" this carbon into sugar.True or false? The light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis use water and produce oxygen.true **The water molecules are split to replenish electrons in photosystem II, leaving behind protons, which are used to generate a proton gradient for the formation of ATP, and oxygen, which is released as a by-product.Which of the following molecules is the primary product of photosystem I? A. ATP B. Oxygen C. NADPH D. Carbon DioxideC. NADPHWhat is the biological significance of the light-independent reactions of photosynthesis?They convert carbon dioxide to sugar.Describe the relationship between the light-dependent and light-independent reactions of photosynthesis?The light-dependent reactions produce ATP and NADPH, which are then used by the light-independent reactions.Which of the following reactions ensures that the Calvin cycle can make a continuous supply of glucose? A. Carbon fixation B. Production of 3-phosphoglycerate C. Production of G3P D. Regeneration of RuBPD. Regeneration of RuBPSelect the correct molecule that is the main product of the Calvin cycle. A.G3P B. Glucose C. NADPHA. G3PWhat is the basic role of CO2 in photosynthesis? A. CO2 is fixed or incorporated into organic molecules. B. CO2 is a source of electrons in the formation of organic molecules. C. CO2 is taken in by plants as a form of inverse respiration, in which carbon dioxide is "breathed in" and oxygen is "breathed out."A. CO2 is fixed or incorporated into organic molecules.Describe the basic function of the light reactions of photosynthesis.The basic function of the light reactions of photosynthesis is the conversion of solar energy to chemical energy.
