carbon dioxide + water —> glucose + oxygen + water
What colors of light are best for plant growth/photosynthesis?
Blue, red, and purple light
Where are the pigments found in a chloroplast?
the green pigment chlorophyll is located in the thylakoid membrane
What is the thylakoid disc and what reaction of photosynthesis happens there?
thylakoid disc is what connects the thylakoids, and is the site of light dependent reactions
What is the stroma and what reaction of photosynthesis happens there?
the storm is the surrounding area in the chloroplast, both the light independent and dependent (Calvin cycle) occur
What is needed for photosynthesis to occur?
carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight
Where does the mass of a plant come from?
carbon dioxide
What factors effect the rate of photosynthesis?
temperature, light intensity, and availability of water
