- a yellow or orange pigment that serves as an accessory to chlorophyll in photosynthesis
- b The distance between crests of electromagnetic waves.
- c type of plant that minimizes photorespiration by fixing carbon twice, using a C4 pathway in addition to the Calvin-Benson Cycle.
- d one of the carrier molecules that transfers high-energy electrons from chlorophyll to other molecules

5 Multiple choice questions
- Store the organic acids made at night in vacuoles and use them for photosynthesis during the day when stomata are closed
- the synthesis of organic compounds from carbon dioxide, such as in photosynthesis
- process by which plants use the sun's energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into sugars
- The ground tissue of a leaf, sandwiched between the upper and lower epidermis and specialized for photosynthesis.
- An instrument that measures the proportions of light of different wavelengths absorbed and transmitted by a pigment solution.
5 True/False questions
photophosphorylation → A metabolic pathway that consumes oxygen, releases carbon dioxide, generates no ATP, and decreases photosynthetic output.
primary electron acceptor → in chloroplasts, an acceptor of electrons lost from chlorophyll a; found in the thylakoid membrane
Chlorophyll b → A photosynthetic pigment that participates directly in the light reactions, which convert solar energy to chemical energy.
Rubisco → enzyme that converts inorganic carbon dioxide molecules into organic molecules during the final step of the calvin cycle
photosystem II → One of two light-harvesting units of a chloroplast's thylakoid membrane; it uses the P680 reaction-center chlorophyll.
