Flashcards in 2.9 Photosynthesis Deck (8)
The production of carbon compounds in cells using light energy.
Distinguish between the action and absorption spectra for photosynthesis.
Action: the rate of photosynthesis at each wavelength
Absorption: The percentage of light absorbed at each wavelength
Where does all of the oxygen come from in photsynthesis? Write the equation of the reaction.
Photolysis of H2O: 2H2O --> 4e- + 4H+ + O2
Write a word equation for the process of photosynthesis.
carbon dioxide + water --> carbohydrate + oxygen
What is the granum of the chloroplast?
Structure containing carotenoids and chlorophyll; site of photosynthesis
What are thylakoid membranes?
site of light-dependent reactions
What is the stroma?
Where CO2 converted into sugar
