- Chlorophyll a
- Carbon fixation
- a A photosynthetic pigment that participates directly in the light reactions, which convert solar energy to chemical energy.
- b a tiny particle or packet of light energy
- c A flattened membrane sac inside the chloroplast, used to convert light energy into chemical energy.
- d the synthesis of organic compounds from carbon dioxide, such as in photosynthesis
- e An instrument that measures the proportions of light of different wavelengths absorbed and transmitted by a pigment solution.
5 Multiple choice questions
- 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
- 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
- An enzyme that adds CO2 to phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to form oxaloacetate in C4 plants. It acts prior to photosynthesis.
- type of plant that minimizes photorespiration by fixing carbon twice, using a C4 pathway in addition to the Calvin-Benson Cycle.
- Store the organic acids made at night in vacuoles and use them for photosynthesis during the day when stomata are closed
5 True/False questions
Rubisco → enzyme that converts inorganic carbon dioxide molecules into organic molecules during the final step of the calvin cycle
wavelength → type of plant that minimizes photorespiration by fixing carbon twice, using a C4 pathway in addition to the Calvin-Benson Cycle.
photorespiration → The process of generating ATP from ADP and phosphate by means of a proton-motive force generated by the thylakoid membrane of the chloroplast during the light reactions of photosynthesis.
Calvin Cycle → green pigment in plants that absorbs light energy used to carry out photosynthesis
Mesophyll → The ground tissue of a leaf, sandwiched between the upper and lower epidermis and specialized for photosynthesis.
