Photosynthesis simple
Show Answers:

  1. What is a pigment and what do they do?
    Pigments are compunds that absorb light needed for photosynthesis
  2. What pigments do plants use?
  3. What is the balanced equation for photosynthesis?
    6CO2 + 6H2O = C6H12O6
  4. What is needed for the Light reaction to happen?
    Sunlight and Water (H2O)
  5. What comes out of the light reaction?
  6. What goes to the Calvin Cycle from the Light reaction?
    ATP and NADPH
  7. What happens in the Light reaction?
    The sunlight charges up the electrons, and it breaks the hydrogen and oxygen apart, The oxygen is then released while the hydrogen is is passed along to the NADPH to transfer to the carbon cycle
  8. What comes into the calvin cycle and what comes out?
    Hydrogen and Carbo dioxide go in, and glucose comes out
  9. Where does gycolysis occur?
  10. What is the eqaution for celluar respiration?
    C6H12O6+ 6O2= 6CO2+6H2O
  11. What is created from glucose in glycolysis?
    The gluclose is split into 2 molecules of Pyrovates or Pyruvic acids
  12. What is pyrovates?
  13. What is the full name for ATP?
    Adenasine triphosphate
  14. What happens in the Calvin cycle?
    CO2 is converted into Glucose
  15. What is also produced in the calvin cycle?
    NADP+ and ADP + P, they are sent to the light dependant cycle
  16. What is a carrier molecule?
    They are compund that can accept a pair of high energized electrons, and transfer them along with their energy to another molecule
  17. What carrier molecule is involved with photosynthesis?
  18. How does NADP+ become NADPH?
    It takes a high energized hydrogen molecule
  19. Where do light dependant reactions take place?
  20. 3 factors affecting photosynthesis
    • Water
    • Temperature
    • Intensity of light
  21. Region oustide of thylakoids in chloroplast
  22. A stack of thylakoids is a
    Granum "Grana"
  23. All chemical changes that occur within a cell of an organism is called
  24. Organisms that make their own food are called
  25. Metabolism of glucose when oxygen is present is
    Aerobic respiration
  26. During fermantion, what is produced?
    • Alchol
    • Latic Acid
    • CO2
  27. Where does cell respiration occur and what does it produce?
    • Mitochondria
    • 36 ATPS
  28. What is the name of the chemical process that produces ATP in mitochondria?
    Electron transport train
  29. How many ATPS does Anaerobic respiration make?
    4 ATPS
  30. How many ATPS does glycolysis make?
    2 ATPS
  31. How does ADP become ATP?
    When it is in the mitochondria it is fused with another phosphate
  32. How does NADP+ become NADPH?
    Another hydrogen is fused with it
  33. What happens during the Electron transport train?
    Hydrogen gives enough energy to fuse a ADP with another phosphate, then the hydrogen escapes through ATP synthase making 34 ATPS, then the hydrogen bonds with oxygen to make water
