Tree
An example of an autotroph
Grass
NOT an example of a heterotroph
When a phosphate group is removed
Energy is released from ATP
Priestly and Ingenhousz
Scientist that showed that plants need light to grow
Carbon dioxide, water, and light
Used in the overall reactions for photosynthesis
Granum
Stack of Thylakoids
Chlorophyll doesn't absorb green light
Why plants appear green
Thylakoid
Place in the Chloroplast that chlorophyll is found
Oxygen, ATP, NADPH
Products of light-dependent reactions
Beginning of photosynthesis
Pigments in photosystem II absorb light
Stroma
Place where the Calvin Cycle takes place
Fewer Sugars will be produced
If Carbon dioxide is removed from a plant's environment
The rate of photosynthesis increases and then levels off
If you continue to increase the intensity of light that a plant receives
Autotrophs
Organisms that make their own food
Heterotrophs
Organisms that cannot make their own food and must obtain energy from the foods they eat
Chlorophyll
NOT a part of an ATP molecule
Water
Jan van Helmont concluded that plants gain most of their mass from this
Light
Ingenhousz showed that plants produce bubbles when exposed to this
Oxygen and high-energy sugars
Photosynthesis uses sunlight to convert water and Carbon dioxide into this
Pigments
Plant's gather the sun's energy with light absorbing molecules called?
Sunlight
Plants take in the sun's energy by absorbing what?
Thylakoids
The stroma is the space that surrounds this
Thylakoid Membrane
Where light-dependent reactions take place
Thylokoid Membrane
Where photosynthesis I and II are found
Light Dependent reactions
Another name for the Calvin Cycle
High Energy Sugars
A product of the Calvin Cycle
Water,temperature, and light intensity
Things that effect the rate of photosynthesis
Photosynthesis
Requires light, Water, carbon dioxide, and chlorophyll
Rate of Photosynthesis
Decreases when the weather becomes very cold
Van Helmont
Concluded that plants gain most of their mass from water alone
Heterotrophs
Organisms such as hawks and leopards that obtain energy from the foods the consume
High Energy Sugars
Photosynthesis uses energy of sunlight to convert water and arbon dioxide into oxygen and this
Ingenhousz
Found that plants produce oxygen bubbles only in the presence of light
