  1. Where does Photosynthesis take place?
    in the chloraplasts
  2. jelly like interior of the chloroplast, where the calvin cycle produces sugar, where synthesis takes place
    Stroma
  3. describe the stroma
    jelly like interior of the chloroplast, where the calvin cycle produces sugar, where synthesis takes place
  4. describe the Thylakoids
    green membranes, photo takes place, light turned into energy
  5. green membranes, photo takes place, light turned into energy
    Thylakoids
  6. Thylakoids
    green membranes, photo takes place, light turned into energy
  7. Granum
    a stack of Thylakoids
  8. what do you call a stack of Thylakoids?
    Granum
  9. what does light reaction do?
    converts solar energy to chemical energy via NADPH and ATP
  10. what does sunlight do?
    provides energy for photosynthesis
  11. what happens to the H2O thats invested?
    it splits into Oxygen, Hydrogen and electrons
  12. how are the oxygen atoms made?
    made when the H2O is spilt O2 is made
  13. What is the oxidized form of NADPH?
    NADP+
  14. NADP+ is the oxidized form of what?
    NADPH
  15. What does NADPH do?
    an electron carrier. light drives electron from water to NADPH
  16. How is ATP used in photosynthesis?
    produced in the light reactions and used in the Calvin cycle to provide energy for sugar synthesis
  17. what is the calvin cylcle
    makes sugar from CO2, ATP gives energy, NADPH provides elections for the reduction of carbon dioxide to glucose
  18. what is the function of the chloroplasts?
    production of ATP and sugars via photosynthsis
  19. describe photosynthesis (3 points)
    • 1.it provides nourishment for the plant,
    • 2.it converts light energy into chemical energy and carbon-based building blocks,
    • 3.it gives off O2 as a by product.
