Process by which plants, algae, and some microorganisms harness solar energy and convert it into chemical energy
Organisms that obtain their carbon by consuming preexisting organic molecules
Organisms that make their own organic compounds from inorganic compounds (Water and carbon dioxide)
Organelle of photosynthesis- two outside membranes enclose stroma
Pigments. a- most abundant photosynthetic pigment in plants algae, and cyanobacteria. b- carotenoids
Occur in thylakoid membranes and convert solar energy to chemical energy which is used to capture photons and make ATP
Use ATP and NADPH produced in the light reactions to reduce carbon dioxide to glucose
