Plants take in Co2 from the environment through the stomata in the leaves and absorb water from the soil with their routes
Chlorophyll in the chloroplast uses water to absorb sunlight (red & blue) and releases oxygen as a waste product
Energy from sunlight is transferred from chlorophyll to make ATP this is through electron transport chain
Plants use energy stored and CO2 to make sugars
Two types of photosynthesis
Light dependent and Light independent
Light Dependent reactions are also called what?
occur from sunrise to sunset
How to light reactions occur?
water is split into oxygen and hydrogen, releasing oxygen as a waste product and using hydrogen to help create ATP to build glucose molecule
Light reactions also...
use light and H2O to make O2
Light Independent Reactions are also called what?
Dark reactions or the Calvin Cycle
Dark reactions occur how?
ATP and coenzymes from light dependent reactions combine with CO2 molecules, rearrange them and make sugars (GLUCOSE!!!) for food
Dark reactions also...
use CO2 to make sugar
Purpose of Photosynthesis
Change light energy into chemical energy (glucose)
Reactants (what goes IN!) of Photosynthesis
Light energy, 6H2O, 6CO2
Products (what comes OUT!) of Photosyntesis
What organisms go through Photosynthesis?
Purpose of Chlorophyll
Absorbs light energy
