- Light Reactions
- photosystem II
- Calvin Cycle
- a reactions of photosynthesis that use energy from light to produce ATP and NADPH
- b One of two light-harvesting units of a chloroplast's thylakoid membrane; it uses the P680 reaction-center chlorophyll.
- c one of the carrier molecules that transfers high-energy electrons from chlorophyll to other molecules
- d green pigment in plants that absorbs light energy used to carry out photosynthesis
- e reactions of photosynthesis in which energy from ATP and NADPH is used to build high-energy compounds such as sugars
5 Multiple choice questions
- A flattened membrane sac inside the chloroplast, used to convert light energy into chemical energy.
- that portion of the electromagnetic spectrum detected as various colors by the human eye, ranging in wavelength from about 380 nm to about 750 nm.
- A plant that uses the Calvin cycle for the initial steps that incorporate CO2 into organic material, forming a three-carbon compound as the first stable intermediate.
- a 3 carbon sugar; for each CO2 are formed in the Calvin cycle; 1 leaves to be used in the cell, 5 are use for regeneration of RuBP
- A route of electron flow during the light reactions of photosynthesis that involves only photosystem I and that produces ATP but not NADPH or oxygen
5 True/False questions
CAM Plants → type of plant that minimizes photorespiration by fixing carbon twice, using a C4 pathway in addition to the Calvin-Benson Cycle.
Photon → a tiny particle or packet of light energy
Rubisco → one of the carrier molecules that transfers high-energy electrons from chlorophyll to other molecules
Chlorophyll a → A photosynthetic pigment that participates directly in the light reactions, which convert solar energy to chemical energy.
Autotroph → organism that obtains energy from the foods it consumes; also called a consumer
