Card Set Information
What is a pigment and what do they do?
Pigments are compunds that absorb light needed for photosynthesis
What pigments do plants use?
What is the balanced equation for photosynthesis?
O = C
What is needed for the Light reaction to happen?
Sunlight and Water (H
What comes out of the light reaction?
What goes to the Calvin Cycle from the Light reaction?
ATP and NADPH
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
What comes into the calvin cycle and what comes out?
Hydrogen and Carbo dioxide go in, and glucose comes out
Where does gycolysis occur?
What is the eqaution for celluar respiration?
What is created from glucose in glycolysis?
The gluclose is split into 2 molecules of Pyrovates or Pyruvic acids
What is pyrovates?
What is the full name for ATP?
What happens in the Calvin cycle?
is converted into Glucose
What is also produced in the calvin cycle?
and ADP + P, they are sent to the light dependant cycle
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
What carrier molecule is involved with photosynthesis?
How does NADP
It takes a high energized hydrogen molecule
Where do light dependant reactions take place?
3 factors affecting photosynthesis
Intensity of light
Region oustide of thylakoids in chloroplast
A stack of thylakoids is a
All chemical changes that occur within a cell of an organism is called
Organisms that make their own food are called
Metabolism of glucose when oxygen is present is
During fermantion, what is produced?
Where does cell respiration occur and what does it produce?
What is the name of the chemical process that produces ATP in mitochondria?
Electron transport train
How many ATPS does Anaerobic respiration make?
How many ATPS does glycolysis make?
How does ADP become ATP?
When it is in the mitochondria it is fused with another phosphate
How does NADP+ become NADPH?
Another hydrogen is fused with it
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
