If you expose a photosynthesizing plant
to water that contains both radioactive H and radioactive O, in which of the products of photosynthesis will the radioactive H and O show up?

Which one of the following statements is
ATP is not produced during photosynthesis. ATP is only produced during respiration.
The electron transport chains of the light
shuttle electrons along in a series of redox reactions
The light reactions occur in the
__________ while the Calvin cycle occurs in the
thylakoid membranes . . . stroma
The Calvin cycle constructs
__________, an energy-rich molecule that a plant cell can then use to make glucose or other organic molecules.
Plants use sugars as
a fuel for cellular respiration and a starting material for making other organic molecules.
The greenhouse effect is
reduced by photosynthesis, which removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
The Calvin cycle involves all of the
formation of waste products in the form of CO2.
