equation for photosynthesis
6CO2 +6 H2O -> C6H12O6 + 6O2
carbon dioxide and water are converted into glucose and oxygen
the stage where the plant uses energy from light to convert adp and nadp+ into atp and nadph
when plants use ATP's and NADPH's energy to build high energy compounds that can be stored for a while
what does the calvin cycle use and produce?
it uses atp and nadph from the light dependent reactions to create glucose
what do plants use the glucose made in photosynthesis for?
they use it to produce complex carbohydrates (example=starches)
why are plants green?
chlorophyll absorbs light well int he blue and red wavelengths, but not in the green wavelengths
clusters of chlorophyll and other pigments and proteins in thylakoids that capture the energy of sunlight
a compound that can accept a pair of high-energy electrons and transfer them to another molecule
who is the calvin cycle named after?
the american scientists Melvin Calvin who worked out the details of the cycle
