The _______ part of photosynthesis occurs in the thylakoid membrane
In the Photosystem 2 what goes in?
Light and Water.
In the photosytem 2 what is released?
In photosystem 2 ________ is pumped into the thylakoid space during the 1st electron transport chain.
Photolysis uses _____ to break water down.
During the first Electron transport chain what goes in?
What does Pi stand for?
During the First ETC what comes out?
Where is ATP used?
The synthesis part(light independent reaction).
While electrons move down their transport chain, ______ molecules are pumped up, which then are released to produce ________.
In Photosystem 1 what goes in?
In photosystem 1 what comes out?

In the Calvin Cycle carbon dioxide comes in from the _________ into the leaf.
In the Calvin Cycle oxygen and water leave the leaf through the _______.
Rubisco is an enzyme. True or False?
Rubisco binds carbon dioxide to ________?
How many carbon sugars does Rubp have?
Combining Rubp with ______ will ultimately make sugar.
What is G3p?
A 3 carbon sugar used to make bigger sugar
What is rubisco argued to be?
Most abundant enzyme in the world
Where is NADP+ and h+ Recycled to?
To the photo parts.
What is the main goal of the Calvin Cylce?
Turn carbon into a usable form for life.
what is the stomata?
Small pores on the undersides of leaves
C4 photosynthesis is the _____ form.
C4 photosynthesis separates ____ that undergo the Calvin Cycle from the _____, only allowing carbon dioxide in by pumping it in.
C4 plants produce ultimate Carbon dioxide _____ tape enzyme.
During CAM photosynthesis the stomata ______ during hot dry days.
During the _____ time the stomata closes.
Because there is no light to dry photosynthesis at night in the Cam process plants take ________ and store it in the central vacuole
During the day stomata are _______, while carbon dioxide is gradually released.
What is an advantage of CAM?
Water loss is minimized
what are disadvantages of CAM?
Requires more energy, slow growth
What is an advantage of C3 photosynthesis?
What is the overall equation for photosynthesis?
