producer, plant capable of synthesizing its own food from simple organic substances; producer
process by which plants and some other organisms use light energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and high-energy carbohydrates such as sugars and starches
organelle found in cells of plants and some other organisms that captures the energy from sunlight and converts it into chemical energy
a flattened membrane sac inside the chloroplast, used to convert light energy into chemical energy.
a cluster of chlorophyll and other molecules in a thylakoid that help to harvest light energy during photosynthesis
reaction taking place in the chloroplast in which the absorption of a photon leads to the formation of ATP and NADPH
reactions of photosynthesis in which energy from ATP and NADPH is used to build high-energy compounds such as sugars
first step in releasing the energy of glucose, in which a molecule of glucose is broken into two molecules of pyruvic acid
a process in which an agent causes an organic substance to break down into simpler substances
process that releases energy by breaking down glucose and other food molecules in the presence of oxygen
a series of proteins in which the high-energy electrons from the Krebs cycle are used to convert ADP into ATP.
finds that aquatic plants produce oxygen bubbles in light but NOT in dark. PLants need sunlight to produce oxygen
